Bixler v1.1 EPO 1400mm (RTF Mode 2 Throttle Left Radio)
Looking for a ready to fly 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!
The Bixler 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 the included battery with the supplied charger, it should be ready to fly!
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!
Full 4 channel control is a must for new pilots and experienced pilots alike and the included 2.4ghz radio, & 6 channel receiver combo is packed with plenty of features, including a range test button for peace of mind, a mix facility, servo reversing and a trainer port!
I use a 3s 2200 Lipo in my bixler without having problems with cg. Theres just enough space to level the cg. I can even fit two 3s 2200 in parallel (3s2p) with my Gopro HD 3 in front. Awesome plane! My absolutly favorite.
This is a very well put together plane. I didn't even need to read the manual in order to construct it, and when assembled, it's very straight and true. Propeller doesn't look like it will last long, but there are plenty of other 5x8 props around for little £$£$. all in all 5 Crowns from me.
Welcome to the official http://RCFLYGUYS.COM Unboxing of the HobbyKing Bixler 1400 RTF.
Starting with the Packaging, it's great. There was a little bending of a wingtip, but nothing a little pressure took out. The box is very pretty and the equipment was easy to find.
Looking at the gear, it looks great, the motor is pre-mounted, with the prop mount for easy install. Wingrod is Carbon fiber which is n ice. The stickers, I'm not a big fan of, personally, I took them off and painted it. For FPV use this is great, the cockpit is large, and the front of the fuselage is big. The powerhouse of the RTF Came with a nice ESC, and a 1300 3 Cell LIPO which gave it plenty of power and longevity. The motor really impressed us with the power, it's definitely a good fit for the model.
The instructions have lots of pictures and very easy to follow. Putting it together was easy, for beginners this is a real dream to put together. If you're running low on space and you're a hobby enthusiast, you'll want to make the wings separate not glued in permanently.
The bixler branded radio and receiver was a real nice touch, very easy to bind, and a great set-up.
We flew this guy with the HK WingCam HD and it was lovely, the plane has lots of power and is great with the default configuration.
Josh Bixler, it's a great plane to have named after you, and it is a pleasure to fly.

1 thumbs up!
Bought the RTF version. East assembly, everything fits perfectly. One control horn not properly glued on, but easy to fix. Control horns are not the best quality, holes are badly drilled. Will probably replace these, as well as remove the nose weights. Files great, I've only flied on a simulator berøre and took this up today in a bit og wind with zero issues. Nice and steady at half throttle, very easy to land as it's a great glider. Elevator is very pitchy, so recommend a bit of expo on it. Very happy with this purchase!

LLevo mas de 10 años volando aviones de RC y en definitiva este es el mejor entrenador que he volado, le monte una bateria de 2200mAh y el vuelo puede extenderse a 20 minutos, la respuesta de los mandos es un poco brusca pero se puede ajustar mecanicamente, definitivamente una felicitacion a HK por este producto
