Now in its third generation, HobbyKing™ brings you the Bix3, the ultimate training airplane and FPV platform. The Bix3 is the biggest, most versatile, and complete version of its family lineage. Coming with removable landing gear, plywood FPV tray, plastic belly skid, and optional flaps, you can customize your Bix3 exactly how you want it. Looking for the perfect trainer? Or an in-expensive FPV platform? The HobbyKing® Bix3 is it.
The Bix3 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 snap together two-piece wing makes the Bix3 a practical model that is easy to transport to your favorite flying field and can be ready to fly in just minutes.
Other practical features of the Bix3 include the large battery area that can accept a wide variety of battery sizes or house FPV equipment, plus the Bix3 also comes with optional flaps which can help cope with the extra weight. Simply install your own 9g flap servos, glue in the included hinges and you're ready. Even the control horns , pushrods, and Y-harness for the flaps are included in the box. We've upped the ante on the Bix3 by adding removable tail dragger landing gear including a steerable tail wheel. If you do not want to use the landing gear we have included a clear plastic belly skid to better protect the foam fuselage. Adding to the ruggedness of the Bix3 is a carbon tube that runs down the length of the aft fuselage, all the way to the tail wheel, so snapping a fuselage in half is a thing of the past.
For the FPV junkie, we have included a option plywood fpv mounting tray that replaces the stock sport canopy. This tray is perfect for setting up a camera with pan and tilt. For a fixed position camera, the nose is removable, able to accept small 1 inch square form factor cameras.
The larger wing, flaps & much larger canopy area mean that the Bix3 is a much more versatile airplane in terms of FPV use and for pilots who are simply flying for fun. However you decide to fly the Bix3, you can be assured that it is just as fun and easy to fly as ever!

I give 4 stars Value because for the price, you get a good beginer plane with all needed to start flying .
But quality is not as good as it have to be .
My Bix3 engine is doing a lot of noise and vibration since his third flight .
Hobbyking is not offering me a good solution (they say to send engine, and wait his evaluation and wait more for stock, and wait wait....etc..etc..)
I finally get another engine...because i dont want to stall my plane in the air with the original motor vibrations.
I have done a video showing noise, but nothing matters for hobbyking .
Plastic clips for alerons, rudder, etc.. dont close. I have to apply heat shrink tubing for fix (yes, i dont want to loose control in flight) .
Some parts are not very fine glued.
In first flight i loose landing gears in the air, because plastic was not glued correctly .
Hobbyking, if you send a Plane Ready to Fly, it has to be just READY TO FLY .
After a long absence from the hobby, I needed a 'refresher plane', and didn't have too much money to spend. Knowing that there are some iffy items out there, I bought the Bixler 3, and was astounded by the quality of the product, the tolerance of the friction fits and other components. The density of the foam is not as low as some previously bought planes from H/K, and she flew perfectly out of the box.
History repeated itself as I wrapped it around a rugby post, but unlike the Easy Star, the only thing that broke was the motor column. She's back in the air and rearing to go, with no ill effects.
It is now the staple training plane that I use for nieces and nephews, and one that I recommend for those learning to fly. Robust, good quality and easy to use.
