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!
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, this version being 'kit only' the manual acts as a guide to the installation of your own choice of equipment.

Awesome plane. very forgiving and easy to set up. I'm adding an APM and FPV gear which easily fit in the huge space inside the fuselage. Has enough room for multiple batteries.
Great FPV platform or trainer.
can be flown as a 3ch with elev/rud or elev/ail setup or 4 ch on all controls.
fits up to a 6" prop and can handle a variety of motors.
Best plane for the buck.This thing is super awesome i had one since it came out and as a trainer is awesome, also glides very well so it gives you loger battery life and there is plenty space for all the goodies, is also tail heavy so you have to put the battery far to the front. For landing is super strong and easy to fix if it ever break. You can add landing gear like i did but i took it out since it slide awesome in the grass. Have fun.The wing screws were a problem fitting and then tore out of the wings on a rough landing. So I glued them back together and replaced them with 3 rare earth magnets. Now the wings assembly is quick and easy and the plane is a superb trainer. Half throttle gives around twenty/twenty five minutes in the sky, with it gliding on the thermals a treat.
Only the wing bolts problem that everybody seems to experience stop this plane from getting and overall 5 stars.
Tip I bought a kit version as a cheap way of having full set of spares.
Superb and great value for money.Perfect trainer, universal plane. Also good for FPV. Very easy to fly, even children can fly it with a little supervision. Just push the trottle and steer by ailreons, it's really hard to crash with this plane in normal conditions, but as it's really easy to fly, you can do many aerobatic performances, fly few centimetres above the ground, catch it in air by hand, etc. I use it with 2700KV NTM 28-36 motor and it's so powerful it can fly straight up to the sky with 1kgplus of flying weight. Also, flying speed is around 160 km/h so it's really very fast if you want. But, you can also just slowly glide and relax. Even in strong wind, it's easy to fly. Best plane for beginners. Cheap, reliable. Only con is motor mount, I have to replace it in every plane I build for some more tough (I build my own from plastic plate). It breaks after first harder crash. In general, there's no better choice for beginners.While I do not doubt tha this is a great model once it is finally set up, I can only say I am rather disappointed for several reasons. Firstly the instruction manual is of no help at all as it leaves you to work out what goes where and what certain items are for. My package was also missing the Y servo lead and half the screws for the control horns. The motor that is recommended does not fit the mounting as it should and the spindle on the motor is too big for the propellor hub, which had to be bored out. While trying to work everything out has been an experience I would not recommend this model for a beginner or inexperienced flyer. They would be much better getting the model that already has the motor and servos in the package. Apart from this I agree it is a great plane/glider to fly.Very nice cool fly 2200mah 30aECS 2200kv 5x5propJust a great plane for FPV. Will put a 2212 2299KV in it.excellent product at cheap price.
a problem if the stay glued anyways.
motor esc exchange.I have flown this kit with hxt900 servos, D 2826 2200 kv motor, TGS Sport 6x4e sport prop, upgraded control horns, 2200mah turnigy nano-tech lipo and a hobbyking 35 A fixedwing esc for almost a year with over 50 flights. I have no issues and it flies great. Well wrth every penny.okay i only bought one cause i seen it on flitetest , josh and aosh got me back into the hobby so i only think its fair to try it out.
this thing glides forever and is an awesome fpv ship , cut the wingtips " like you want to anyway" and it does speed runs.
set up right its a great plane , but im deducting a start because of the pink shirt on the pilot , lucky i had my fathers pilot lying around.
