Hi Guys,

I've had my Hawk Sky 4 channel rc plane for a few years now. I've modded it, strengthened it and generally repaired it from practicing flights. It's coming to the point where any more mods will make it too heavy to fly (and quite frankly it looks a bit shabby and has had better days).

I'm thinking of buying another plane, possibly a flying wing because its a single structure rather than a standard plane. The one in particular is called a 'JP 480-SI ELECTRIC 48inch'.

I'm looking for some general advice as to whether this type of plane would be good (easy-ish) to fly - also whether standard hawk sky 2.4GHz equipment will work with such a plane. I know that I'll need a transmitter with 'mixing' but I'm not too clued up on this either.

Any suggestions on what to move onto next in terms of planes and equipment would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Dan

Ive been flying the Bixler v1.1. Bought the whole package almost RTF from hobbyking for like 50.00 bucks servos and all. Flies really smooth just like the Hawksky and DIRT cheap. I have a ball with it. and for like 6 bucks you can get the landing gear which is a hoot!

Wings are very stable and easy to fly. The EPP vesions are basically bullet proof. This is an older video of the Pop Wing. Slow or fast, it is stable. It is an efficient design that gives long flight times too with throttle management.
