Default NEED HELP BUYING AN ELECTRIC PLANE

Hey guys, I am looking to get someone a gift and am a little familiar with whats on the market. The guy I am looking to get something for, flys both turbine planes and electric, due to cost, I am looking for an electric nothing more than $250. I know he likes certain models such as Red Hawks, Blue Panther, F-16s and 18s (Blue Angels specifically). The plane I am searching for would be a RTF or almost ready to fly, no kits. What do you have in mind? I do not want to get him something cheap or childish, but rather something powerful and fun! Let me know what you think! Thanks a ton!

EDIT: I was looking to pick one out off this site-http://www.bananahobby.com/electric-rc-airplanes-electric-fighter-rc-jets.html

Banana hobby has a bad reputation for poor customer service.

Check Hobby Lobby. Here's their page of EDF jets:
