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, Can anyone tell me what size camera I can fit into Canopy, I was thinking of using the Turnigy HD ActionCam (29,8x52,9x41mm), I could buy it the same time as the Bikler2

Sorry for the spelling, Bixler2

just do a search for "gopro on bixler 2" you will see examples of how it mounts. It mounts the same way. Take off the clear windshield and attach one of the mounts to the floor of the canopy. Its going to add a lot of weight in front of the COG. I would buy the B2 in kit form, with a upgrade motor mount, and use all my own electronics and a larger motor. Having the Fuse in 2 pieces makes it easier to mount your electronics as far back as possible as your building.

Thanks Richard, Had a look at the 'gopro on bixler2' video, I did not realize how big the 'grpro' is for the plane, is there a camera (if possible from Hobbyking) that will fit into the canopy of the 'Bixler2' also what are the options for the FPV way.
 Richard 541 points
There are many options, if you want something smaller with hd video, the Mobius is good. You don't really want any camera to look through the clear plastic, you will still have make something to hold the camera in place. The live video out is not that good, so your going to want a separate fpv camera. That is a whole other topic, There's tons of info on the net if thats what you want to do. To get started recording my flights, I would just Velcro and rubber band a Mobius to the nose right in front of the canopy.

As I order one Bixler 2, why do I get 2 on my bill. That is why I close down my order. B.J Zwijnenburg

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.
