I have a bunch of left over Bixler parts and figured I'd try to make something of them. I like ibcrazy's specter FPV plane so here's my take on that with Bixler parts, aka the Spexler? I will document the experiment here.

In the never ending quest to achieve jello free aerial video, here is my latest attempt. I have heard many great reviews and seen several video examples of the 8-Balls Gello Killer http://www.multiwiicopter.com/produc...llo-killer-kit but I didn't want to pay $60. Out to the garage for some DIY... I picked up some rubber barrels from Hobby King and then went to cutting and drilling some lite ply. I may paint it later for looks, first test tomorrow morning, will report back-

UPDATE:
Here's a quick edit of the first test video with GoPro 2

I use this stuff on all my foam planes. It's really easy to work with, dries clear and stays a bit flexible, which I think tends to help reduce damages when your plane come in contact with a solid object, like the ground... I used to use epoxy but it eventually gets brittle and cracks. CA really hardens the foam and takes away its ability to flex under stress, which is why we love our foamies so much in the first place! Try this stuff out, you will like it..

One of my favorites is the Multiplex Fun Cub. I have always been a fan of Alaskan bush type planes. A Turnigy 3536 1000kv motor with an APC 11.47 and HobbyKing Blue 30a ESC give enough power to hover if you want or in my case plenty of pop to get out of those short backcountry air strips... Flaps and aileron servos are HXT900 and I used a Turnigy servo speed and direction regulator is used to control the flaps. Rudder and elevator servos are Turnigy 9025MG. I've modified the main gear with an additional rear support and the tail wheel assembly from HobbyKing. The wing struts give it a bit more Alaskan bush style Turnigy 2200mAh 20c 3s battery provides about 12-15 mins of flying time. It really is FUN -
