Seems impossibly cheap, too good to be true.

If it is real we should organize a group order, I'll take one or two at that price for sure.

Already sent an e-mail to confirm price and availability. If they're under $50 I may just order 12 and list them on E-bay.

I'm not in the business, but I suspect FOB price does not get the carton to your door, it gets it to the dock, it may take some additional steps (and $) to get it to your door.

Doris from WLtoys replied my question. She did not provide anything useful other than the following:
Price term:

FOB price: 69.7 USD
EXW price: 68.89 USD
I have no idea what FOB or EXW meant so I sent her another mail asking for clarifications. I used Chinese so hopefully miscommunication would be reduced.

"Free on board(freight on board) price means a price which includes goods plus the services of loading those goods onto some vehicle or vessel at a named location, sometimes put in parentheses after the f.o.b.

example:
fob(shipping point)-means the price is good only till the loading /shipping area. The shipment cost will be paid by the customer/buyer.
fob(destination)-means the price includes the shipment cost up to the place of the customer/buyer. The shipment cost will be paid by the seller."

EXW = Ex Works - basically the factory price. No shipping nor insurance included whatsoever.

I sent her another E-mail regarding shipping as she wanted an address for a price quote. They want to use DHL which tends to be expensive I think. I'm guessing it will be at least $75-$80 @ with shipping. Then, if people want to go in on a case, you have to factor in secondary shipping to each individual buyer. Another $10-$12. Now we're getting close to the $100 mark.

Two more Taobao sellers posting nice close up photos of V922:

Apparently, the first batch (plain packaging) will arrive on 7 December 2012!

+/- 70 or 92$ if Hisky compatible it's an interesting price, lets see how much for a bnf.

Got a response from WL on AliEx:

1 ctn*8 pcs* $68.89 + $210 USD=761.12 USD

So $95 @ to initial destination. $210 seems awful high for shipping one box.
