This is still a work very much in progress. Been crashing it far more than I should, so I don’t know what’s up with that.

The Bixler 1.1. This has ailerons but no flaps.

The small black box at the left is the FPV camera (I know, it's tiny, but size doesn't matter). The center stuff is the Hobbyking KK2.0 board running the OpenAero firmware. Above it and to the right is the GPS for the onscreen display. The jury is still out on this setup. An astute observer might notice the amount of dings on the nose....This is NOT a good sign.

Another view of the front of the Bixler. Yeah, that nose looks pretty beat up.

The mid parts of the aircraft. To the left, under the motor is the ESC. The thing on the boom is an ImmersionRC 600 mW 5.8 GHz video transmitter, one of my favorites. The antenna is beneath the boom.
