Default XPV - looking for the Storm Launcher and saw this

I went to Toys R Us looking for the Storm Launcher and saw the [link=http://jakkspacific.com/xpv/]XPV.[/link]
It was $59, but I couldn't find the battery pack, so I didn't buy it.
From what I remember reading on the box, it goes about 25mph in the air and as high as 20 stories. It goes over concrete, dirt, and grass. Not water.
It looks pretty sweet. If Air Hogs can't get their act together, I might get tired of waiting and pick this one up. Plus it costs less.

Looks pretty cool in the video, just too bad it won't operate on water.

The article says it's powered by a Lithium Ion battery, is that supposed to be Lithium Polymer?

Didn't someone say that they returned their Storm Luncher to Wal-Mart because it sucked?
