Really love my Bixler 2. Being new to RC Airplanes I have taken it one step at a time. My first lesson was altitude is your friend. Both minor "unexpected landings" I have had have both been from being too close to the ground. Watching a Flite Test You Tube video I heard Josh Bixler mention flying two mistakes high. I also read it on one of the post here on RCGroups. I have progresses to flying higher and higher and further away. I have also started loops, rolls and stalls. Man this is fun!. Even though I still consider myself a new pilot with only two months under my belt I am beginning to understand why many look for a little more powerful motor for the Bixler 2. The stock motor is more than sufficient to learn but once you start looking for quick climbs and such the stock motor just doesn't have the punch. I can't complain on batter life, however. A 2200 mHa battery can last 20 - 25 minutes depending on throttle use. Much less if kept at near full power. Ask me how I know!
I would definitely buy the Bixler 2 again. Great trainer and a lot of fun after you have learned. A little power plant transplant may be in order some day but may just run the stocker until it give up the ghost.
