May I ask why you removed the flap servos and taped the flaps and ailerons together?

Reading your post I conclude you have a programmable Tx with mixing possibilities. If it's at least 6ch and has the possibility to use 2 channels for the flaps you can achieve just about the same thing with some smart programming.

Edit: just figured that full flaps wouldn't be possible with 6ch though, for that you would need at least 7ch so you can program and mix seperate channels for the ailerons as well. (personally I'm using an 8ch Tx and Rx so that's what I did).

Actually I really enjoy programming and mixing (OpenTX on a 9X and Taranis) but I enjoy tweaking and simplifying even more.
I have used the full house mix for the past 12 months but wanted to simplify, reduce weight, and experiment.

Separate flaps might be useful on high end gliders to help with landing, or warbirds for authenticity, but really not necessary on a knock-about foamie.

EDIT: you're right, only need 5ch now

I'm also getting a little bit addicted to your kite videos also. Makes me want to start building box kites again.

Thanks Pat,

I have been neglecting the kites, RC planes have taken over.

I snipped the tips off on my first bix because I was bored, the rolls and loops were more fun...but I was still a rookie pilot back then...not really much better now, 2 years later It didn't last too long, but yes, it does make it a totally different bird

Edit: I Don't really recommend snipping the tips off tho. It's a fine plane just as it is.

Well it fits better in the car and makes for a more fun bird and with the motor upgrade. I have no intention of using it for fpv so why not.
End of the day, each to there own aye.

Agreed, as for a new pilot like me, the wingtips help a great deal at slow speeds and banks, I enjoy the way it flys and looks. But then again, why not modify it to something different if one feels like it?
So long as you can fly it and fit it in the car, fair play to you!

Weather willing, my Bix2 is coming out of the Hangar for a few flights this weekend.

i crash my bix 1

i will build a bixler 2


I doubt whether use my old motor


KDA 28-47 16Turn S Brushless Inrunner

KV: 2400 rpm/V

Max current: 16.00 A



with these motor i use a 6x4E but the bixler 2 include in the kit a 7x5E propeller

and I think my motor would burn with the 7x5E



I do not mind changing the motor



which would be the best option??


Thanksss

Why change the motor? Just use your 6x4 prop.... havent checked the specs but sounds like a decent motor for the bix

I am newbie in RC


I read is better option 7x5, because it has more torque with with less revolutions

and this form was best for the bix2

this is what I read


I'm not sure, because of that i want to ask you


I want the best option because i will install with arduplane apm 2.5 and i want to do it the best way i can


thanks

sorry for my english
