Fighter Plane F-16 Fighting Falcon Model Durable EPP

Found this on the Swedish site "Tradera" (its like Ebay).
Called "Fighter Plane F-16 Fighting Falcon Model Durable EPP"

To expensive (ca 50US$) for a totally unknown Toy plane, but its supposed to be 4-ch, and has 4 motors, of wich 2 sits vertically mounted at the wingtips, interesting!

So, my question is, has anyone tried one, if so is it good?

Feature:
Optional charger can reduce the charging time.
Powerful engines make the model could take off easily.
Direction (right and left) are controlled with the twin motors, no extra moving parts.
The fuselage is made from durable EPP foam; this special material is very resilient. The propellers are flexible and durable too.
Easy to fly-even if you have never flown a model before

Specifications:
Product size: 29.5x31x8.5cm
Battery for helicopter: 3.7V 200mAH Li-poly rechargeable
Battery for transmitter: 6*1.5V AA (NOT included)
Color: yellow
Materials: EPP
Control distance: 60 meters
Charging time: 35-45 min
Flying time: 7-8 min
Frequency: 27 mhz/40mhz

Package Contents:
1 * RC Airplane
1 * Remote Controller
1 * Installation tools
1 * Spare propeller (4 pieces)
1 * glue
1 * antenna

Another link, 40$ free shipping in US, still too expensive?
Edit: Shipped from China, still free.

But this was the 2.4GHz version which give better range than the 27/40MHz stuff.

Thanks, but 2.4Ghz on something like this would be cool, and the 40$ price keeps it in my comfort zone, have to wait...

50 US$ plus 13$ freight from a Swedish "Ebay-seller" is too much for me @ the moment.

Found the German site, The plane is called Starkid "Speedwing"
The plane was on the first page when I opened the site.
http://www.xtwins.de/start.htm

Looks really cool, and has the 2.4Ghz radio... 35Euro, its on my wish list now
I could not post a link to the video here, but Look it up, this plane really is a stepup from the xtwins!

Thanks again Machy2k

You're welcome Jim; I actually have known about thisplane for some time, but I never posted about it.
Sometime means like 3yrs or more, interesting how some flying toys are all over and some you never see, but I first saw this on either Chinese or European sites, I just never paid it much attention...
