Bixler

Looks like a great plane to fly. Enjoying the build so far. At this point I have some of the FPV gear installed. I will be covering the wings ...partially with NS 3 mill. in the weeks to come.

Sweat! I hope they have some improvements in the wing, and more beef with the motor.

Thanks road_rascal !

It took forever to get this in the air. My first maiden I had a pan servo mounted on the nose, purchased from Hobby wireless the FPV 180* servo. Worked fine in the shop many times. Took it to the field turned on my radio then the plane, checked the pan and it continuously rotated in a clockwise direction, winding up all the camera wire and ripping it out of the fuse "looked like spaghetti rolled up on a fork"
So for now I glued the camera to the fuse. I also took my ESC out of the fuse and mounted it on top.
I ended up putting 3 mill NS out to the center of the ailerons to stiffen the wings.
