A few hours ago Hobbyking has announced that there will be a 3 Bixler also you could already see part of the wing.


I hope they have fixed Bixlers main problems: the wing mount (weak)and the fuselage (plenty of space but no access

All problems are listed in my wordpress blog.

Yes, I know; My ideas of quality are high; the reason for this could be that I'm typical German to you.

Any word on availability? Tried to buy a B2 tonight but they are not available in the US.

I don't think the B2 has ever been available in the US. The Bixler 1.1 is available (or at least was).

Take a look at BANANA HOBBY SKY SURFER V5, pretty much the same as the BIXLER 3, i think.

No, from the history. Bixler and Sky Surfer is made at the same company. Look at the small details, in different version. Here in EU they sell them under more company names.

Well obviously pre installed flaps which you'd think would only be needed for an FPV machine. I love my Bixler 1.1 for when everyone is grounded by high winds at the club and I launch.
Don't FPV guys have enough of a range of models already.

Did none of you spot this in the background.....Looks like an interesting wing tip design.
