Bixler 2 FPV maiden flights

By CurryKitten, 18 Feb 2013 into Bixler in Fixed Wing Watch on YouTube »

The first weather window we've had in a month here, and with nothing else to do but build new planes, 3 of us were ready to test.

You will notice an obvious problem on my Bixler 2, the OSD GPS didn't seem to work (it's an old unit off my tricopter), and of course I hadn't tested this part as I'd only had the plane powered on inside. This was a bit of a pain as I had to look at that text in the middle of the screen for the entire flights, and I didn't have any idea about lipo power left.

The the ESC went pop... or actually didn't - we heard a little squeaking noise and noticed I had no power.

So there's a mix of all sorts here, some GoPro quad footage, some ground recording (thanks FlyBoySee for doing this) and some stuff from the 808 cam (which is sometimes very shaky)

This is a stock ARF Bixler 2 (with added servos for the flaps - which are awesome) The motor on the Bix 2 seems to be seriously hated, but I had plenty of power, and could cruise around with barely any throttle.

krikey didn't have his Skywalker FPV'd up for this maiden, but you can check out FlyBoySee's amazing Penguin flight here -
