    Bixler 2 Wing Configuration (Assembly)

    In the many threads I have been reading and checking out over the last few weeks, it seems that the original Bixler glider did have some issues with the wings separating, even to the point where some installed them permanently. Looking specifically at the Bixler second generation, I noticed a...

    Inspired by Alex - Acrobatic Air 2 Air FPV with QAV250 and Bixler

    So I have been loving some of the moves Alex has been pulling off in his air to air footage! I had some fun yesterday pulling off similar moves with my QAV250 and a newbie FPV pilot on the Bixler. Got a couple flips and hesitation roll in there with the Bix in sight, we even pulled off a semi...

    Complete RTF Bixler FPV Setup

    I've got the urge to build a new airplane and have decided to sell my trusty Bixler. It's a ready-to-go FPV setup, and all that's needed to get flying is a viewing screen and a 3S 2200mah pack. This has been my only FPV plane for a few years, and it's a reliable setup with good performance. It...

    Bixler FPV

    It has been too long. I'm going FPV flying on Sunday. The field has been super busy this year. Way to crowded for me to really put her up and soar. Specially when I need a spotter around. So this weekend things should be quieter and I'm hoping to put the gear through its paces. Last time I...

    Tek Sumo or Mini Skywalker as a first FPV platform.

    Hi there. I am planning to get started in FPV with a 5.8ghz system, and am unsure what airframe to use. I have experience flying LOS with a Bixler (which is no more) and a Phoenix 2000, and I also have experience with Flight Simulators (FSX, FS2002). I have been considering using the Pheonix for...
