Has anyone ever seen this plane

Picked it up at an auction for $2. Thinking about converting to electric power. Curious if anyone has ever seen one. Who made the kit, what size glow engine, etc. Obviously a Beechcraft bonanza as you can see from the decal on the wing. Seems kinda heavy. 60 inch wing, foam core, appears to be covered with heavy paper. All plastic molded fuse with a funky door that opens to access the servos. Just wandering if it is worth the effort or will it fly like a turd..Thanks for looking

Definitely a Flightcraft. They also had a Cessna. A Cardinal I think, and some boats.

If you're just gonna shelf it, I might be interested in working with it. Can you slide a big battery forward into the nose from the cabin? How much does just the airframe weigh? I'm sure I could cover your costs.

You cant see from the photos but the wing right under the fuse is in bad shape. two large cracks in the foam - crash damage. could be repaired, but probably have to resheet the whole thing with balsa. also plastic cowl has some cracks in the plastic.
