"Snow is Forecast" Hobbyking Bixler 2 Maiden & Review (Not A Freebie For Review)

By RagTheNutsOff, 06 Aug 2019 into Bixler in Fixed Wing Watch on YouTube »

The Hobbyking Bixler 2 is a RC trainer that has been out for years. Sadly it looks like it's also been forgotten about for years with cheapo components being used & a obvious oversight. We THRASH its nuts off for it's maiden AND every other flight it had too :D Enjoy! Matt

This model has been BOUGHT out of MY OWN money for my own abuses. It is NOT a freebie for review. As such my opinions of this model and anything else shown here may differ from other reviews because I've actually "bought it".

Bixler 2 Model Issues:
- - - - - - - - - - -
1. Terrible glue used to join the two model halves
2. Poor quality clevises
3. No further thought given to hinges (why bother with the flaps & rudder)

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 has had some improvements to make it even better such as a bigger air inlet for better motor cooling of the uprated motor.

This version of the Bixler® ™ 2 comes as a "Plug and Play" which means that you will need a 6CH 2.4GHz radio system, a 3S 2200mAh lipoly battery and a battery charger. Just finish the assembly of the plane, setup your radio system and add your battery, power up the model and fly. It's that easy!

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 makes 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 its 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 (servos 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!
