My guess is none. Usually sites like this only last about a month or two until people catch on and cant get their money back. After stealing from as many people as possible, they shut down the website and start a new one. I really hope that I am wrong on this one.

If I am wrong (and I hope that I am), then rc-batam needs to fix their website and show some of their own pictures and video.

Is bananahobby the only US distributor for the SU-47? I have nothing against banana, I just like to look and compare.

Batam has been around for a long time. To me it just looks to be less than a half-ass job at creating a website.

Good to know

I was hoping to be wrong. It is hard to say no to such a low price if this is indeed what they are advertising.

Thanks for clearing me up. Sorry if I came off rude, but I am sure that anyone can understand the skepticism. I am still going to wait until reports start comming in.

Thanks

Everyone is going to question how legit the deal is until someone has one in their hands from Bantam. I'm just wondering who that first person is going to be?

I hope they turn out to be legit. It's the ultra cheap prices for the planes and shipping they make me nervous more than the crappy website.

If someone pays with Paypal they should be covered if you get the old Baitam and Switchum

It just doesn't make any sense comparing the price for this http://rc-batam.com/index.php?target...&product_id=16

with the price for this http://rc-batam.com/index.php?target...&product_id=18

especially knowing that they are playing the cut n paste game. There is no way to know for sure what they are selling.

No Paypal, then you're risking your money. Maybe someone can mention to them that they should look into using PayPal for their customers.

Yeah if they won't take Paypal that is a deal breaker.

RC-Batam SU-47's

Hey Guys - Back again, since you have now all seen that we are the ONLY ones that have, currently own and displayed videos and pictures of the Jet and are the official Australian Distributors for Lanxiang, I again ASSURE you all, RC-Batam has no ability to sell the SU-47 at the price they are displaying. Its just NOT possible. The pictures displayed of the SU-47 carton are the real pictures inside the Lanxiang Warehouse, but at this stage final shipment has not been completed. Shipping is supposed to begin late this week, and it will be available from early to mid December from most outlets.

I wish everyone happy flying with their new SU-47's.
