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

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! Tested and approved for beginners through to intermediate pilots by Josh Bixler from Flight Test!

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.

Required: 20A ESC 4 Channel Radio (Tx/Rx) 1300mAh 3s Lipoly Battery Somehow I overlooked the (Tx/Rx) bit. I saw this as requireing a radio but coming with a reciever. This kit Does not come with either. You will need to order a reciever as well aws a tranmitter. So the "Required section should read as follows IMO: Required: 20A ESC 4 Channel Radio Transmitter & Receiever 1300mAh 3s Lipoly Battery LiPo Charger

Everything is ok. Tx means transmiter Rx means receiver This is all information you need.

This is a really good product, but like most ARFs requires a couple mods to make it great. First modification is replace or strengthen the wing spar. Second modification is go over all stickers using low temp covering iron - this will help them adhere. Third mod is remove the ballast in the nose of he plane (usually washers) and use larger battery - such as 2200mah. RCgroups has a thread with extensive information about mods that are recommended or possible. I used the middle setting on mine. The servos are adequate, motor is more than adequate. It doesn't dissipate ESC heat well, so if you run hot use a BEC separate from ESC. This is a very very fun airplane it's extreamily versatile - from trainer, to FPV platform, and it even soars fairly well.

I have not previously been a fan of foamies but after watching the Joshes I decided that the Bixler was worth a try. I am an intermediate pilot and want it for FPV and mainly flying in places where conventional landings are not possible. It works a treat. Hand launch and plop it in to some long grass. As for flight characteristics it is fairly docile on takeoff unless you have full throttle.

Pros Very forgiving, with splendid glide. Inexpensive, easy to complete with all parts fitting nicely

Cons take care loosening control surfaces as they can snap off. (Easy to reattach with glue in hinges.

Conclusion If you want a versitile foamie buy it, you wont be disappointed.

This glider is ideal for beginners, to turn a 6X4 propeller has very good performance with strong wind, which makes it very interesting and fun for advanced riders. It is an excellent platform for FPV, as it has very good space to install the camera and other equipment for FPV. I remove the washers that brings a counterweight, and installed a battery of 2250 mAh. with ESC 30 A. I reinforced the fuselage with a solid carbon rod of 1.8 mm. The second model I installed the lighting system (2-port Lumifly hexTronik Glow-Driver) with neon blue, what makes it fun to fly at sunset. It is very versatile, allowing various configurations, Planing slow flight against a strong wind, flying at sunset, FPV, and so on. Excuse my English because it is very poor. regards Leo

Best plane i have bought! flys and glides very well and I am now using it for fpv! With a Rhino 2350 it gives 25 to 30 of flying time on half throttle :) Fully loaded for fpv i am carrying an extra 380grams!! Only problem has been one servo locking up (lucky i was close to the ground) so i recommend replacing these with the great 9gram HXT900 at $2.69. Other improvements include removing the washers in the nose - best way is boiling water (not too long) to soften the hot glue, changing the control horns to ones with screws and a backing plate, moving all the flaps to loosen them and then adding tape for strength, running a 6x4 APC prop for more punch and a stronger wing spar. Just bought another one for my brother LOVE THIS PLANE!

Super Einsteiger Segler

Der Zusammenbau geht einfach . Man sollte nur die Gewichte aus der Nase entfernen dann kann man auch mit 3s 2200 fliegen.
Die Flugzeit beträgt dann 30 - 40 Minuten.
Der Motor ist mehr als ausreichent für den Bixler.

Sehr zu empfehlen für einen Anfänger

Super beginner sailors

Assembly is simple. You should only remove the weights from the nose, then you can also fly with 3s 2200th
The flight time is then 30 - 40 minutes.
The engine is more than fit for Bixler.

Highly recommended for a beginner
