RIBase
I reckon it's a scam.
The .co.cc addy and the fact that the registered address appears to be a private house is a clue...

Just received this response to my email


Hello,

The engine will come with full package: cables,wires,controls and prop.
We will deliver the product directly from our US. supplier. That's why you have the testing period. You can test it and if you don't like it you can ask for a full refund. Please place your order on our website and the sales department will email you the invoice.


Thank you for your interest.

????????

Looks like a scam. There was another website saying it did the same thing a while ago. Was a total scam and the email they sent out to people was virtually the same as the one you got above.
