I have been going through the site and forums for almost 4 days with plenty of google searchs for what some of the stuff means... like Mode 1 or Mode 2, FPV, outrunner vs inrunner... I think I am…Continue
"Don't put a 5000mah in a Bixler unless you really need the long flight times. While the Bixler flies fine with such a large battery it does have a tendency to more easily stall in slow turns, and will fly better with less weight."
