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!

This is a great plane. I bought it to mount a camera on and I did just this - making my own simple mounting rather than buying one. It carries the HK version of the GoPro fine - stable and plenty of power. But then I tried it without the camera and its lost of fun. Wizzes around the sky - set the prop to brake when power off and it whistles by fast when pulling out of a dive. I bought the wheels as well but they are flimsy and you need to cut into the fuselage to mount them so havent bothered using them. Great plane at a bargain price. Ok as a trainer too I reckon. Tried it with flaps and didn't need them so took the servos out to save weight.Just got this for my little brother and he loves it.Really amazing plane for a beginner like me !
This plane is very smooth and can be powerful when you put some throttle.
I really recommand this plane for beginners and for experts.
The one thing that I don't really like; it's the wings attach system : Before flight it's not easy at all to attach wings servos wires to the Rx... This thing need a modification.Magnifique modle de dbut ou pour intermdiaire pour se faire vraiment plaisir.
Juste un ESC et deux servos pour les volets, tout le reste y est. pour ce prix, c'est vraiment magnifique.
Merci HobbyKing !!!!Well packaged, perfect product. I suggest everybody.trs bon avion de dbut transition 3 axes
stable qui tient au vent, facile a faire voler, trs bon en vol plan, pas gratteur mais capable de tenir les ascendances.
facile a poser mme s'il allonge un peu
un excellent choix pour se dtendrewell made and quick to put together just a problem with the wing sections and wiring very tight.Excellent FPV-platform: with an (old) 2200 mAh Lipo I have flight times of 30 minutes ( with some gliding, of course...). Much space in the fuselage for all equipment and its a real good glider - much better than an Easy Star.Quite ok for a PNP, with a little effort makes a great plane.
Dunno how it'd have flown straight out of the box, but I decided to do some mods in mine:
- reinforced the elevator with 2 carbon spars
- enlarged the rudder with 6mm depron into 200pcnt
- replaced the wing-joiner with a bigger tube and sawed it into 2 pieces which I glued into the wings and got a separate wing-joiner
- some barbeque-sticks glued for extra reinforcements in various places
- got rid of the stickers (nit like they even tried to stay on) and waiting for some paint.
Flies quite gently with the stock motor and propeller, flies inverted, loops and such, glides well and flaps are a nice little add-on. Also slopes well.
Good value for the new lower price.Arrived in perfect condition. Very easy and quick to assemble. I added the flap servos. One needed reversing due to the way the cutouts in the wings were done. I used a 2200mah 3c battery and a 30A ESC. The cg on the middle of the suggested range felt a little forward on the first flight requiring a few clicks of up trim. Second flight moved the battery back a little and was perfect. Very nice little aeroplane :-) Battery lasts ages with only about 50pcnt charge used after 30 minutes gentle flying.
