What are people thinking of the Bixler 1.1?

I had basically written the Bixler 1 off as my first plane since it seemed it required a lot of tweaks to negate the cheapy parts and things such as wings coming loose.

The 1.1 seems to have addressed some of this:
Better control horns
Move servos for more space
wings bolt in from the top (an improvement over the Bix 2?)

Additionally i've heard that the wing spar is different in that is has a solid carbon rod insert that you fit inside the existing tube, it's about a foot long from what i've heard.

Can anyone confirm that these improvements on the wing spar and fixing using bolts are sufficient?

It seems like there's even less difference between the Bix 1.1 and Bix 2, the 1.1 has better spar and fixing of wings, bix 2 has better hinges, longer wings and plastic protection on the belly. Am I missing anything?
