your right, its NOT an ESCI copy, i got one for Christmas, i also have the old ESCI one. The new one looks like an easy build, but you cant move the wing tips. the ones i have seen all seem to be priced around the 45.00 dollar mark, pretty reasonable if you ask me. i have noticed that the models i used to order from Russia are all through the roof price wise now!! i used to be able to get them direct for a bargain.
