So heres my Bixler in its box. Very happy HK, Box inside a big box. No damage, everything looks good.
3hrs later after opening it and soldering my electrics and working out how the motor fits and servos, I have the Fuselage glued. :b0708:



Hears the 1st photo of the fuselage after being glued together. Ive opted to use gorilla glue instead of the supplied which is half full of air. :b0201:



So this is my Wing Spar Mod. From what ive read sum have used 4mm CF Rod inside the 8mm Tube, But I found a few who used your humble bamboo cooking skewers. You simply gorilla glue 4 of them inside the 8mm Spar and once glue has expanded slightly makes for a nice solid Spar.  A lot cheaper than buying more CFtube, which I didnt have lying around.

Sorry bought the photo sizes, Photobucket not playing along!!

Some pics of tonight's Build
Servos all in the wings, Wiring all run ready for the Fusalage.


Tail fins all on. I added a piece of 4mm cf rod along the horozontal fin to stiffen it up. Heard this was worth while. Had a piece of CF left over from my Heli Tail pushrod.


And finally the tail fins glued in place.


Until Tomoro on the next update. Hopefully fix in wings and add the Prop.
Love to fly, If only there were more hours in a day!!
