Surprisingly, the shipping to the USA isn't too bad at all from what I can see, it will cost about 9 Euro, or roughly $10 to ship 2 stands, and I haven't seen either one of these stands on ebay or any domestic online retailer.

**** Unfortunately the shipping turned out to be a killer @ about 30 Euro, when I checked their shipping chart it showed shipping to North America (Canada and USA) @ about 9 euro for up to a half Kg, and about 17 euro for 1 Kg, and I can't imagine 2 Witty stands weighing 2+ Lbs., but those prices didn't turn up when I attempted to check out. ********
For you information, ArcLight:

F-14 / F-15 stands incl. original packing weight 134 gramms, SU-30 stand 144g.

2x cca 140g = 280 gramms which leaves enough margin for packing. After their confirmation 2 or maybe even 3 stands could fit in half Kg limit. Packing maybe doesn´t have to be so bulletproof? Piece of cardboard on top and
bubble wrapped envelope?

Just for your consideration....
