Now if only it had a removable tail and came in a kit.
Seems to be only ARF. For now at least.

I....erm.........ahem........well.........

Seriously, as far as I can see, the Bixler 2 isnt actually a copy of the EZII - its more a 'Super Bixler'. Construction would appear to be the same as the Bixler I; ie it doesn't have the QD motor facility (pod is all foam with no hatch), it doesn't look to have the removable tailplane (yes Bob, we know you don't see that as a plus), and it remains to be seen what quality the hardware is. Also I'm not sure why they've gone with a clear canopy, given that no vacformed plastic I've ever seen is worth pointing a camera through. But the biggest downside for me is that HK still insist on using that damn fool bloody stupid name...... I refuse to promote an annoyingly irritating complete ar$e like JB (or his equally irritating minion). Oh that and the fact that I have a personal policy of not ordering anything from HK that has a high enough value that I may want to return if damaged, given that their returns policy is at best poor and at worst non-existent.

I like the idea of the flaps though - could be a lot of fun....

Bob, I want you to order one so we can get the goss straight from the horse's mouth. Looks like a nice model. But I know you, Bob - you'd miss us all here if you had to go play with the strange boys on Bixler Street.

All the above ignores whatever pricing policy the importer into your country chooses to follow - which in the US seems to be an issue for many.

I buy only receiver-ready aircraft since I use only Futaba equipment and I would not buy from Hobby King if the price was only ONE dollar! Does anyone know if the EZ ll or the Sky Scout will be available as a receiver-ready model?

In this case, you have to look for the Sky Scout P2GO version or the RR (Receiver Ready) version of the EasyStar II.
