Is there a difference between the sky surfer (readymaderc) and the bixler (hobbyking) ? They both seem to be v1.

I believe the readymaderc is a modified v1, but I could be wrong.

I believe that it has been established that they are the same animal but with different decals

Thanks guys, I was deciding between the zephyr 2 and the sky surfer/bixler, I think I'll grab the surfer and maybe down the line a zephyr 2 once I want more aerobatics.

Unfortunately they're out of stock at the moment, but you can get SkySurfer/Bixler parts from ReadyMadeRC. The only downside is that you can't seem to buy spare Bixler decals anywhere...

Is that really a downside

While i love my Bixler, i loath the decals. but some seem to like the design / colour scheme, so each to their own.

wtg !!

i like simple things

i hope you remember few things ..

1. the rc link rx should be as far as possible from the video tx
2. the antenna / video rx should be as high as possible with best los for the plane as possible



to improve your range and video link quality
