You can buy the Su-47 kit (i.e. the foam only) from trade4me in Germany for 135 Euros including VAT (which you may get refunded).
Su-47 kit here
I don't know whether you will get it much cheaper than that from Asia, after shipping and customs.
However, keep in mind that a new version of the Su-47 seems to come out, with the upgraded fans etc. So I would be unsure whether to invest a lot of time into the old kit with its known problems, particularly the bad ducting after the fans.
PS: Lindinger is having a fire sale on the whole model, i.e. with electronics. Only 199.
