What do you mean enhancements? Umm...did you know there was always wing tubes and one long spar fits into?
Can you clarify what you mean about the tail especially? Oh, and can you take any pictures? Thanks.

Thanks for going to the effort of getting the #s and posting them here!

I think i better go camp outside the post office until my plane shows up... should be within a few days!
Only 12 minutes? Out of a bixler?? Yesterday morning I flew my Bix2 for 39 minutes out to 3.2km, 2826/1400 Turnigy with 4000mah 3S... even with a 2600 batt I easily achieve 15-20 mins, that's cruising around at 1/3-1/2 throttle 8-9 amps 40-50kph

i only run a 3S 1800 usually. I'll have to try a larger load, but my super sky surfer is coming in this week so my attention will be away from the bix for quite a while :P

nah, just a hand launch
with the 4000 flight batt she's a challenge without a slight headwind, but no problem with a 2600-3300 batt

i'll be doing a short vid of this weekend's flights, I'll post if you like

Has anybody compiled a recommended list of hop/ups for the SSS?
I find suggestions ranging from the common (esc, horn/rods, props), to more sophisticated (motor, etc), to insane (extending fuselage!), but can't find a definite shopping list!

It would be very helpful!!!

excitement and failure...

Got my FPV gear on the SSS... went to power up, everything looks great but my Tilt servo for the camera :/ guess it was a bad one... So i pulled out the glue gun and glued the pan tilt in a fixed position! Im not going to have something like that ruin my FPV maiden!

Ok... FPV'd!

I only got 45 min of flight but thats probably because of 15-20mph winds... had to stay on the throttle more :/

Going to try again this afternoon...
