FX803 the World's Cheapest RTF RC Airplane?

The FX800 series may be the world's least costly RTF RC airplanes. The FX803 is a 2.4Ghz update to the popular two channel HL803 Piper Cub. But don't be fooled by the low price. This little airplane can be quite a flier, with good endurance of over 10 minutes flight time. Find it here for $25 with shipping from GearBest. Find it here from CN Direct.

Pro's
- Very inexpensive.
- Reasonably stable flier.
- Good range (at least 80 meters)
- Controller includes a USB port to charge the airplane in the field using the controller's batteries for power.

Con's
- Built in battery. Can not swap batteries in the field. Although it can be charged in the field with its controller.
- Very lightweight. Would be difficult to fly in the wind.

and here's my demonstration flight with it:
