My colleagues flew the prototyped J-10 in Taiwan with the oldest EDF75 + BL2815 inrunner successfully. Here are the two videos, http://tw.video.yahoo.com/video/play?vid=1380040 just forget the music if you do not like it.

Its a lighter EDF jet comparing to another same size ones. It flies fast and with more aerobatics in the air by controlling the elevon and the front stabilizer. My colleague
used the mixer function on the elevon but not on the front
stabilizer. He had to operate both elevator and the canard for taking off.
Mr. Andy will keep every Early Bird friend informed of this announcement. All EB's are welcome to place EB order with GWS.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

If you compare photos of the Lavi fighter designed by Israel and the J-10 it will be apparent that the internal structure of both fighters must be quite different. The wing shapes are different and the canard on the J-10 is mounted further forward. This means that the positions of the bulkheads where the wings and canards are mounted are in different places.
The aircraft look similar but since the first aircraft first flew many designers have come up with similar shapes at the same time period. I.e. WWI biplane fighters or WWII monoplane fighters equipped with inline V12 engines
