HobbyKing Bixler 2
So there has been a teaser posted of some Bixler 2 graphics from Hobby King.
Given the following and ownership of V1, no doubt there is a great deal of curiosity about what the Bixler 2 will have on offer.
All welcome to post your thoughts on what we may get with this new plane.

Looking for the perfect trainer? or an in-expensive FPV platform? Maybe you are a club pilot looking for something you can just pull out of the car and fly on one of those lazy Sunday afternoons? The Hobbyking Bixler 2 ticks all of these boxes and more! The Bixler 2 retains all of the great features of the original Bixler but offers more in terms of all round capability courtesy of larger dimensions and several design improvements.
The Bixler 2 has all the right ingredients, made from super tough EPO foam, everything is pre-installed so minimal assembly time is required, in fact, by the time you have charged a battery, it should be ready to fly! The combination of size, low wing loading and a sleek fuselage make for and excellent model with capable yet forgiving flight characteristics. The plug in wing makes the Bixler a practical model that is easy to transport to your favorite flying field and can be ready to fly in just minutes. Another practical feature of the Bixler 2 is it's ability to accept a wide range of Lipoly sizes and /or FPV equipment courtesy of the enlarged canopy area. The Bixler 2 also comes with optional flaps which are pre-hinged (servo's not included) the flaps are particularly ideal for FPV pilots carrying a heavier payload. The final improvement was to re-design the boom area to allow the Bixler 2 use a low kv motor and larger prop combo, which is more efficient and offers a more linear throttle response.
The larger wing, flaps & much larger canopy area mean that the Bixler 2 is now so much more versatile in terms of FPV use and for new pilots and experienced pilots alike who are simply flying for fun, these new design features, combined with the larger, more efficient prop mean that the Bixler 2 offers longer flight times. However you decide to fly the Bixler 2, you can be assured that it is still just as easy and fun to fly as ever!

I STARTED to say that there are a gazillion posts on the Bixler, then I actually read it and saw the "2". New and improved? Hope so for the Bixler lovers.

Has the (now called) V1 Bixler been improved since it was first released? Is the wing spar better? Are the servos the same as first released?
I have had no problems with either on a 3 month old Bixler.
EDIT - finally broken a wing spar, one crash too many.
