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 2 ticks all of these boxes and more! The Bixler 2 retains all of the great features of the original Bixler but offers more in terms of all round capability courtesy of larger dimensions and several design improvements.

The Bixler 2 has all the right ingredients, made from super tough EPO foam, everything is pre-installed so minimal assembly time is required, in fact, by the time you have charged a battery, it should be ready to fly! The combination of size, low wing loading and a sleek fuselage make for an excellent model with capable yet forgiving flight characteristics. The plug in wing makes the Bixler a practical model that is easy to transport to your favorite flying field and can be ready to fly in just minutes. Another practical feature of the Bixler 2 is it's ability to accept a wide range of Lipoly sizes and /or FPV equipment courtesy of the enlarged canopy area. The Bixler 2 also comes with optional flaps which are pre-hinged (servo's not included) the flaps are particularly ideal for FPV pilots carrying a heavier payload. The final improvement was to re-design the boom area to allow the Bixler 2 use a low kv motor and larger prop combo, which is more efficient and offers a more linear throttle response.

The larger wing, flaps & much larger canopy area mean that the Bixler 2 is now so much more versatile in terms of FPV use and for new pilots and experienced pilots alike who are simply flying for fun, these new design features, combined with the larger, more efficient prop mean that the Bixler 2 offers longer flight times. However you decide to fly the Bixler 2, you can be assured that it is still just as easy and fun to fly as ever!

Hi Bixler pilots: As we know, the waterslides of the Bixler 2 are very delicate end easy to damage. However I have found a simple and cheap solution for the problem. In order to experiment with clear water based acryl paint, I had a crashed and totall loss Bixler 2, of which I still had the wings. I painted one wing with Revell Aqua Colour, Clear paint, gloss (Nr. 36101) and the other one with Revell Aqua Colour, Clear paint, matt (Nr. 36102). They both cover and protect the water slides very well. It's just a matter of taste, which one you use: The glossy, or the matt one! It's really worth a try: The slides don't damage anymore! I tried, after drying, if the slides would damage when holding the wings with sticky, wet, dry and even sweaty fingers, but no parts of the stickers came off anymore!

Hi, this wont let me review it, so im going to do so here. I cant rave on about this plane enough. it was/still is my first RC aircraft, with the exception of the AR Drone 2.0. I have done so much damage to this thing its not funny. actually, it is. it has had 1000mph crashed into concrete, crashes into fellow RC pilots, their planes, trees (even having a wing skewered on a branch, had to throw heavy rocks at it to get it out...) hell, ive even had chunks torn out of it by my dog. but hot glue and sticky tape fix it up, good as new. from my first flight, which ended 2m's of flight before crashing, to my recent 1hr long efforts (all on the 2200mah 3s we all know and love), this thing is very forgiving and loves to fly. even just holding it in your hands into the wind you can feel it wants to soar. it will glide, it will do acrobatics (gliding and powered), it will stop dead into the wind and not move a cm. this is so well designed, i always tell people they need to have one in their personal air force, as their first or their next plane. I cannot fault it. except the carbon fiber spar for the wings didnt hold up long. got a thicker one. bends more, but hasnt broken yet. that, and i lost 1/2 the prop adapter in a crash. replaced it with a nut. works fine. who cares about balancing? still flies better than my friends HK walrus! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3w1I71AYJA

depends how you fly it. from the mentioned 20 minutes (mostly using full throttle, up to an hour, if you power up high then glide back down numerous times. in the right thermal conditions, you can even get back up on those, not needing the prop at all.

The new bixler is a great plane with better low speed characteristics and more options for batteries and loading. The flaps are a breeze to install and servos seem to be higher quality than the predecessor. The spar still has flex and could be reinforced but it's not necessary. The motor is cheap but gets the job done just fine. My collette adapter was off balance and sent vibrations through the plane. That is my only major complaint. Amazing plane, highly recommended!

The quality of the plane itself is very good. It goes together very nicely and the servos, control horns, and hinges are very good. The motor on the other hand is really poor. The performance of mine compared to the original bixler is terrible. The prop collet is way out of balance and the motor makes a clicking sound. The shaft of the motor seems to be an odd size. Tried to get a replacement collet locally, but a 2.3mm is too small and a 3mm is way too big. I feel like I have to fly at 3/4 throttle just to keep it airborne. Also, the 20 amp esc gets very hot after about 10 mins. I am going to put a link to a video of the collet spinning in the discussion or somewhere. And no, the prop is not on backwards :)

Hello, This is my second review on this plane. My first one wasn't 100pcnt positive because I thought that the plane did not have enough power. After that I changed some things. I put back the original prop, because before the first flight I replaced the stock prop with an EMP 7x5. I replaced the prop adapter, because in the stock one the shaft hole wasn't in the middle (I first thought that the motor shaft was bend). And I put the CoG more to the back because the plane was a little bit nose heavy. I also changed some settings on the transmitter so I now fly with 100pcnt servo movement. Today I flew the second flight (the first one after the modifications) and it flies perfectly!! The prop reaches a higher RPM and the plane now certainly has enough power for loopings, rolls and high speed turns. I already now that I will love flying this plane!!

Nice finish on foam, but lacks the quality of the components.
Clevis & horn quality lacking and needs replacement.
Prop adaptor drilled off centre and was needing replacement before flight to avoid damage to the craft. (this was the same for two of the original bixlers I purchased weeks ago.)
Some hobby experience is required in assembly to reduce crashing due to component failure, other wise nice craft.
