So far, so good but not really tested at any distance as still building up my fleet (also lost 20+ models in fire)
Andy, Thanks. I've also been reading this up the past few days. I flew my repaired Bixler today with US power setting and she was flawless after I got all the trims dialed in. With all the tapes/glue/coins to correct CG, she is now just over 1000g. Still has good power but does not glide so well with 0 throttle. I'm amazed by how tough this plane is. I'm a true believer that you can't kill the Bixler!!
