More details about the Bixler HERE!

This week the Joshes return, with the flight review we were denied last episode. Josh Bixler hand launches the Bixler plane, for a review flight from, wait, this has to be a typo, Josh Scott? Yes, Josh Scott takes the new Bixler plane for a spin and does a great job flying it from a beginner's perspective. 

Josh Bixler walks us through some of the main points of the plane while Josh S. concentrates on flying his circuits. A little disaster seemed eminent when it is accidentally flown into the sun's glare, tune in to see if a Bixler Plane Repair episode is in order.

Also, check out the NEW BIXLER 2 HERE!

As a beginner I was looking for a starter plane. As a result of this and a couple of other Bixler videos on this website I ordered one from Hobby King. As expected, I smacked it into the ground a couple of times as I gained experience the hard way, but the Bixler is VERY easy to straighten and repair with some hot water, glue and tape. I feel ready to move up to another plane thanks to the experience gained from this forgiving trainer. I recommend it highly to people new to this fun hobby.

Got that plane on my wish list but I keep spending my money on HK parts for Chad and your scratch builds. Plus I still need a katana for that Angry Swordsman episode ...

Great looking airplane! I was a private pilot about 15 years ago, but took my first rc flight last night on the buddy system with a new flying friend's plane! Some of my flight knowledge transfers, but it is VERY different when the plane is facing me! Something I have to get used to.

I am on a limited budget, and hoping to find a used 4 or 6 Ch TX so I will have a decent TX as I progress from a trainer to more advanced RC A/C. Hoping to get in the air with my own plane soon.

if you are new to the hobby you should try the DXE its a great and fairly inexpensive 6 channel radio. I think it is around 60$. Here is a link http://www.horizonhobby.com/dxe-transmitter-only-spmr1000. Hope this helps!
