NIB Kavan Partenavia...anyone remember this one?

Came across a NIB Kavan Partenavia. Its been stored away in some rafters for the past ten years. It was offered to me free of charge, but I gave the gentleman a $100 to ship it to my house. Very cool guy and friend of mine that got me started flying about 10 years ago. I think this model this was discontinued about 8 or so years ago. Been thinking about trying some FPV. I may give it a shot with the partenavia. One of my first aileron planes was the partenavia,. It's long been gone though. I do remember it was a sweet flying plane. Still has the Hobby-Lobby logo tape on it

Great kit, flies great. Give it plenty of room to land, a bit of a floater.

As you can see from the box, it is actually the Conzelmann/Free Scale Partenavia. It was often referred to as the more elegant alternative to the MPX TwinStar.

Equipped with brushless outrunners and LiPo batteries, it is amazing what this model can haul (i.e. FPV should not be a problem ):

Got one here with 2 x 480's on. Have a couple of 2835 Brushless Inrunners here to upgrade it when I get round to it.
