I came up with my own method that does last layer completely differently and is probably way slower. https://www.speedsolving.com/threads/curvy-copter-discussion-new.75052/page-7#post-1383498
Basically it involves solving the corners (orientation and permutation) intuitively (not efficient)...
I measured my LanLan with a protractor and it's about 90 +- 12 deg, or 78 and 102 deg.
I'm not good enough with geometry to say the precise angle mathematically. I don't think it's a fixed number, meaning you could in theory make the corners bigger and edges smaller, or vice versa.

My guess would be being move efficient in first layer (for example solving centers, edges, corners together instead of one at a time) and then applying last layer algs, but I have never attempted a speedsolve.
That is very useful info. Anyway I have never paid customs or VAT for anything shipped from China, be it a cube store or aliexpress. I've ordered a few items from Japan too on eBay and never any customs.
For my last package, I looked at the shipping tracking. It took only one day for zcube to...
Ok I found out "Special Line" is "Special Line Yanwen". Each package took 20-25 days to get here which is expected.
