My Bixler

This is the plane that most of my videos are shot with at the moment.  I really like this airframe for FPV.  While the foam may not be as nice as Multiplex foam, the benefits of the Bixler (aka Sky Surfer V1) are many.  It has ailerons from the factory and more importantly…has much more room inside for FPV gear.

Here is how mine is currently configured:

Airframe:

  • HK Bixler
  • HXT 2835-2200
  • Exceed RC Proton 30A ESC
  • Castle Creations 10A BEC
  • HXT900’s on all surfaces
  • Sky Lipo 4000 mAh 20C 3S
  • RangeLink LRS Rx

FPV Equipment on Plane:

  • PZ0420 Camera
  • ReadymadeRC 300mW 1280tx
  • Stock Whip antenna
  • Zippy 3S 500mAh Lipo or LC Filter
  • HK L Size Pan/Tilt with HXT900’s
  • (Servos modded for 160degrees rotation)
  • Skylark Tiny II OSD

 

 

Here are some videos from this plane:

    I really liked your color scheme on Bixler. I have a Bixler too but I’m wondering how to get rid of HK stickers. You just peel them away? Is that orange some kind of paint. or colored tape?

      Thanks Ravi! My stickers were already peeling bad when I got the plane…they pull off easily and don’t leave any residue. The orange stuff is monokote low temp trim material. It’s got a weak adhesive that you have to apply with heat EXTREMELY CAREFULLY since you can make the foam bubble up if you get it too hot. Another option would be colored duck tape.
