So ..Today first test flight on my way to work.
No flight test before..

Nice going Guy.
I guess the camera survived the Easy Glider crash ?

I thought about getting a Bixler but find I now use my quads all the time.

The camera was not on the easy glider.. when it went down
Still i have two quads
And found it mach more easy \ calm to fly a ploater as the bixler
You can get very high
Calm down..take a cold drink ..motor off. and glide all over..
If you know how to catch thermals ..stay as mach as you like..

I say- go for it.
The best is both floater & quad.

I have several large floaters, around 3 meter wing span that I designed and built a while ago.
I was looking at the Bixler but find I fly the quads all the time now for AP. The fixed wing planes are gathering dust !
