Question
Bix3 Battery Bay

Hi, I want to upgrade from a bixler 1.1 to a Bix3. I am using 3 Zippy 3s 4000mah batteries. They are 146x51x22mm. Will they fit? If not, what is the largest battery that will?

The bix3 has a huge compartment compared to the 1.1 .. I imagine you could put a huge battery in there . The wing is also way bigger to handle heavy loads for big batteries and or fpv equipment . Even more than the 1.1 or 2 .. I've been researching them all for a few days now ..


Side note . Why do you want to go to the bix3 ..

I want to buy a bixler but I'm deciding between the 1.1 and the 3 . The 3 is what I really want but the 1.1 is so cheap now it's hard to pass up

Just wondering what's your opinion?

The 1, along with the fore mentioned smaller wing and battery space is more agile then the 2 or 3.
It also does not have flaps that 2/3 do. Think of the 1 as a fighter plane, and the 2/3 more of a bomber type.

For anyone wondering, my batteries did not fit because the servos are mounted right next to the battery but I used a soldering iron to melt down the foam on either side and now it fits fine.
