Ok I finally got a test flight in after fixing the plane up and getting all the electronics setup. She flew great considering the 15mph winds! Now to get the FY31AP calibrated right, for some reason elevator and rudder pots are stuck so I cannot get them to go in proper direction!

At $18, the Mini Ultrastick gear set could be an option.

Sorry if it sounded insensitive,all i meant to say was people are going to get what THEY want in the end.

Bixler Test Flight (Trying to get FY31AP setup) (2 min 12 sec)


Managed to get some footage from a test flight today, 808 cam keeps cutting off after a few minutes so it's only like 2 minutes long.

That's youtubes deshaker for you, it does a good job but doesn't offer any cropping tool, plus the 808 cam was just velcro and rubber banned on, so it was vibrating a bit.

Oh yeah I remember now... maybe the wind blew it off, and someone got it... was your info in it? Took a month for mine to come back, I was certain some paranoid nut thought it was spying on him and destroyed it

No, my info was not in it, but in my defence, it was not windy enoutgh to make it skid off the roof. I even tried to power my way
off of the roof, but it must have been rested against something.
But i gotta tell ya, my info will DEFINATLY be going in all of my air craft from now on.
