I've got a kit coming to replace the original Bixler. Just too much glue versus foam after the last crash. Possibly due to the elevator push-rod tube popping out of the groove and not giving up elevator. Experience can mean really "good" crashes, not just a bent bit of foam.

On my old Bixler I ended up wiring the horns as well as glue. As the wire or the provided screws on the V1.1 go through the surface and "clamp" the horn on so there's no chance of it coming off. Glue can break (I know).

I did use 5 min epoxy to glue the tail elev and rudder on. I was at first going to use the nylon bolt method, but decided against it as I didn't want to take the chance that the bolt/nut would pull out in flight.
Talking to another owner yesterday, experienced flier. Only crash with his new Bixler V2 was when the tail came off due to the bolt coming undone!!!

I added about 3 inches of wire to my 3 ESC motor wires
Not a bad idea as you might want/need to change it.
