I have just dropshipped an RC Helicopter from China to South Australia, and am worried about any import taxes that might be sent to the person I dropshipped to. Would this happen? The item was AU$194.00 ($31 Freigh with EMS). Will this get taxed? And if so, will it be taxed to the person I have dropshipped to?

If the RC Helicopter does have a tariff charged, then it will be charged to your customer. It's hard to say whether it will attract a tariff or not though without talking to Customs.
You could email your customer and warn then about this possibility. Many sellers also put a statement in the listing saying that customers are responsible for any import duties.
