Bixler 1.1 or Bixler 2
I just joined the group and am fairly new to rc flying, I'm looking into getting a Bixler off Hobbyking.com, I was hoping to get some opinion, which is the better plane for a newish flyer? Don't plan on doing any FPV with the plane just looking for a step up from a Supercub to a 4ch airplane. Thanks in advance!

Hadn't realised there was already a thread comparing these options - I just put my thoughts here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1837367

After 16 or so flights across two weekends I must say I am loving the 1.1. So easy to fly, even after 15 years or more since my last time up in the air with an old i/c 40 bash box I used to fly with my Futaba 5ch 72mHz gear.
The glide performance is excellent, 9 minute flights at full throttle with a 2200mAh nanotech leaves my cells at a comfortable 40% charge level, if I zip up high and glide around until I lose altitude and zip up again and again I can go for nearly 20 mins with the same level of charge at the end of the flight.
While the Bixler is not a pattern ship or aerobatic plane by any stretch, I am still able to throw it around wildly with max throws and not stress it at all... The only extra carbon rods added were on each side of the fuz. The wings, tail and stab are all stock.
