Wow... fast... it acts like it's got a gyro on the ailerons. Details? I'm outfitting mine for PFV and would love a speedy one like this. I have some pretty fast planes but their props are up front which is a bummer for FPV.

Are you making any changes to the electronics?

Don't forget to give it a tetanus shot in case it lands in one of them New Jersey dumps. You don't want it to come down with something

no gyros .. just cut the wing tips and you will get a new plane... with speed and stability.
motor is just a normal rctimer 2200kv spinning a 6x5 , but the motor is not that good for this plane , as the speed is about the same on half throttle as on full .... before i had a 1350kv motor with 7x6 and the speed was about the same.. next im testing a 1600kv with 7x6 , think that will work good.

The stock motor is 1950kv. So you use a lower kv motor with a larger prop? Do you use a motor mount extension so the larger props will fit? How much of the wing do you cut? Just the curved part, right to the ailron? Or do you take some aileron off? Is this all summarized somewhere, like your blog? I followed the post suggested above but no cut-wing Bix's were discussed there.

with this motor im running now 2200kv and 6x5 i wouldnt need to use the motor mount extension , but with anything larger than 6" its necessary.
i cut the wing 1cm from the aileron.

Nice. Thanks. I like the look of the Bix with all those pesky decals off.

BTW, I see you're into home theater too. I've got a dedicated space. Ever visit AVS' forums?

Thanks Steve!
It's the Skylark OSD. I use mine with there tracker but can be used with out tracker. Plus I like switching back and fourth on the different screen displays.
