HobbyKing™ Bixler™  v1.1 EPO 1400mm - (ARF) (US Warehouse)

Looking for the perfect trainer? or an in-expensive FPV platform? Maybe you are a club pilot looking for something you can just pull out of the car and fly on one of those lazy Sunday afternoons? The HobbyKing® ™ Bixler® ™ ticks all of these boxes and more! A proven platform for beginners through to intermediate pilots!

The Bixler® ™ has all the right ingredients, made from super tough EPO foam, some servos are pre-installed, supplied motor requires installation, fuselage halves need joining so minimal assembly time is required, in fact, an evenings work and it should be ready to fly!

Stop Press!!

Allow us to introduce the Bixler® ™ V1.1 with a myriad of improvements over the original Bixler® ™.
Our v1.1 features relocated elevator and rudder servos, now closer to the tail and accessible via a magnetic hatch on the underside of the fuselage. Why? you may ask - This allows much more usable space inside the front section of the fuselage, something that FPV'ers are going to thank us for! We have also updated the included hardware to include better quality components, such as the new 4 bolt control horns on all surfaces. We also include 2 different propellers, one for high speed and the other for carrying heavier payloads.
You - our customers spoke, we listened! The end result is the Bixler® ™ V1.1!

Whatever you are looking for, the Bixler® ™ has it covered, also included is a color instruction booklet.

Here is a flight onboard my bixler. It is too stable and easy to fly on FPV, for me, it´*s the best plane to start on fpv. I could get beautiful images.

Nice plane.

..it's greatest Achilles heel right now is the lack of spare parts. Wing surfaces, canopies, and the motor mount take a beating after a few less than optimum landings. A common battery to increase flight time is a 3S-2200mAH pack which fits great but makes the plane rather nose heavy. Having a budding launch the plane while up elevator is applied usually does the trick but we don't always fly with others. Grass take-offs are possible but usually requires a prop upgrade (6x4) but can increase loading on the motor and ESC plus reduce flight time. I can't explain the lack of spare parts other than perhaps they're clearing out warehouse stock. But be warned, it's a great plane and reasonable for a beginner but it comes with some not so insignificant pitfalls.

Easy to assemble. Took about 45mins taking my time. One thing I do recommend is to switch out the control horns immediately to Dubro or some other quality brand that you have to screw on. Elevator control horn decided to detach on me during flight. Did not result in a crash but it did take me awhile to get her down safely. Removed the metal rings in the nose. Dont need the excess weight and it allows you to run bigger lipos. Torque rolls to the right.

Just received my Bixler today. It is a J-Powers Sky Surfer V1 which is exactly what I was hoping for. Very nicely packaged, all parts were there, no shipping damage. Held up to my other Sky Surfer and it is identical except for the stickers. If you buy this plane, you should check out RC Groups thread on it. Search for: "Sky Surfer - aka Bixler" thread. There are lots suggestions post #2 that tell you how to set this plane up. Enjoy. This is my 3rd Sky Surfer, err, Bixler...

Just got this in. It is virtually the same shape as an Easy Star but it has ailerons. The fuse is hollow the full length. There are no internal supports. This may not be as forgiving. The rudder broke off as I flexed it to get it ready for assembly. I will have to hinge it now. I am concerned about the ailerons and elevator. I will add hinge tape to avoid catastrophic failures. The motor wires are really short. I have to cut a hole to be able to access them later. There is no mention of the glue to use. The photos show them using Silicone RTV. The wings are not removeable unless you make modifications. The manual is for the RTF. I removed the washers and glue in the nose. The decals will come off eventually, they are not sticking well.

Very easy assembly. Great instructions. Bought for my 6 and 8 year old to learn on. We'll see how they do. I have flown it through one 1500mAh pack and it flies great. Loops really nicely. GREAT PACKAGING!

Received my Bixler RTF yesterday and spent the evening gluing the tail feathers on and adding a few rare-earth magnets in strategic areas to help attach the wings and canopy. Aileron horn broke off before the servos ever moved. A beautiful plane nevertheless and almost identical to my Easy Star. If the truth be told, the Bixler is finished off nicer than theMultiplex equivelent (Easy Star). The wing decals however were almost falling off while still it their shipping plastic bags. Why not leave the decals off and allow the owner to install them?
Worst part After completing construction and binding, I had a plane without a functioning motor! Everything else did work however, although the servo's are all a bit noisy will probably swap-out for something better soon.
All in all, a nice plane. I just wished the motor worked!
