I ordered mine last week from international warehouse. It's been stalled on 'being packed' for a while but I got some emails this morning... one from a robot and another from a truck. They said it was being moved to the front of the warehouse which would take 24 hours.

Both robot and truck had very similar grammatical problems so I'm guessing they may be one and the same. Optimus Prime is working at Hobby King!

Also, it must be a huge warehouse if it takes Optimus Prime 24 hours to move something from the back to the front!

I want my plane.

After long heavy studying, ordered Bixler 2 W buddy code. It was one hell of pain to order it and pay like a human :-)
But finnaly I managed, and am happy novice waiting for über cool Bix.

Please stock up in Europe

Despite being a "Multiplex-boy" I'm prepared to give the Bixler 2 a try

However, it is not stocked in the European warehouse (also the Bixler 1400mm has been on backorder forever), and even the with the cheapest shipping option, the price comes out at very close $100. Add to that a very high risk that the large package will get caught in customs, putting another $30 tax + $28 handling fee on top, it will end up at $150-160

Then the competition gets stiff:


You can get a proven 1800mm EasyGlider Pro delivered to your European doorstep in 4-5 days for less than $100 and then spend the difference on quality servos and a nice 35mm outrunner. This plane will blow the wings of a Bixler, but maybe I'm comparing apples with oranges...

If only HK would stock up in Europe....

...And USA. You'd think they would have sent 200 of these to all warehouses for launch.

Yeah. I was excited about the UK warehouse thing. It doesn't seem to have much in stock though.

Ya, I'm surprised the US didn't get at least 50-100 just to test the waters.

I love the multiplex stuff, have almost everyone of their plane, overall the quality is exceptional.

Never saw the Easyglider pro, looks nice. I still don't think this Bixler will be bad even at $100.00. I think we've come to expect really really low prices now, but even at $120 and change I think there is a ton of value here.

Now that Skysurfer 95 incher starts to get a tad on the expensive side....
