ESTES Model #9701
29 mm motor mount! The Pro Series II line is up and running! The Partizon stands a massive 56 inches tall and can soar upwards of 1800 ft!
Superb is what the Partizon is! Introduced in 2011, the Pro Series II line features “big boy” toys!
The Partizon launches on composite motors and has through the wall fin mounting. An awesome feature to this series is the new quick release motor retention system (Motor Retainer Set – also sold separately). Though massive looking, the construction of this kit is not difficult. Building and finish work can easily be accomplished over a few days.
Sure to be a crowd pleaser, the Partizon is just waiting to be added to your collection!
