Now if only it had a removable tail and came in a kit.
Seems to be only ARF. For now at least.

I....erm.........ahem........well.........

Seriously, as far as I can see, the Bixler 2 isnt actually a copy of the EZII - its more a 'Super Bixler'. Construction would appear to be the same as the Bixler I; ie it doesn't have the QD motor facility (pod is all foam with no hatch), it doesn't look to have the removable tailplane (yes Bob, we know you don't see that as a plus), and it remains to be seen what quality the hardware is. Also I'm not sure why they've gone with a clear canopy, given that no vacformed plastic I've ever seen is worth pointing a camera through. But the biggest downside for me is that HK still insist on using that damn fool bloody stupid name...... I refuse to promote an annoyingly irritating complete ar$e like JB (or his equally irritating minion). Oh that and the fact that I have a personal policy of not ordering anything from HK that has a high enough value that I may want to return if damaged, given that their returns policy is at best poor and at worst non-existent.

I like the idea of the flaps though - could be a lot of fun....

Bob, I want you to order one so we can get the goss straight from the horse's mouth. Looks like a nice model. But I know you, Bob - you'd miss us all here if you had to go play with the strange boys on Bixler Street.



DISCLAIMER:
All the above ignores whatever pricing policy the importer into your country chooses to follow - which in the US seems to be an issue for many.

I buy only receiver-ready aircraft since I use only Futaba equipment and I would not buy from Hobby King if the price was only ONE dollar! Does anyone know if the EZ ll or the Sky Scout will be available as a receiver-ready model?

In this case, you have to look for the Sky Scout P2GO version or the RR (Receiver Ready) version of the EasyStar II.
