    Bixler 2 Gopro mount success on PNP Motor and electronics???

    So I have bought myself a Turnigy Action cam for my Bix2 and wanted to mount it on a spare canopy which I have done today. The Bixler is on totally PNP Electronics and I am using a 3s 2200mah and a 7x5e prop I think. It didn't want to take off at all even with flaps into the wind. I am having...

    Bixler 2 Build - Take a shot at one of these!...

    Got this wonderful Bixler 2 thanks to a silly crash photo I submitted to HobbyKing, and the amazing folks out there were kind enough to virtually donate this airplane. I only paid 31 bucks including shipping, and while it was backordered, got here in less than 4 weeks. Imagine over that waiting...

    Bixler2 Servo Wires

    Do I need to get servo extension wires for the Bixler 2? I got the kit version with the Turnigy 9g servos and the wires were very short. If I got the extra wires, the connectors would not fit into the little track in the wing. This is my very first plane, so I don't know a lot. Picture...

    Getting my Bixler 2 to Flap!

    I'm putting my Bixler 2 together and forgot to order a servo reverser. What's the best course of action, reverse the orientation of the servo on the wing? But a servo reverser? Rewire the servo (let's nip that one in the bud, as I haven't gotten into soldering, yet). Also, best to glue the stip...

    Make a wing from the Bixler packaging

    Why not recycle the EPS packaging box. 3 big flat pieces can be cut from the Bixler packaging box, surely that can be used to make a flying wing. I'm going to give it a go anyway.
