Hello all,

The Bixler Electronics Chassis is being added to the DIY Drones store today. This accessory allows you to mount your APM/Oilpan, GPS Module (Mediatek or uBlox), Differential Pressure Breakout, Receiver, and pan/tilt camera mount on your Bixler. The chassis provides access to the CLI switch, USB connector, and the Reset button as well as providing a clear view of the ‘ABC’ LED’s on the Oilpan at all times. It is also compatible with two GPS modules; the uBlox module can be mounted to the vertical plate near the back and the Mediatek gps module fits perfectly on the shelf above that (or you could use some double sided tape and stick any module anywhere). Most receivers should fit on the top base and can easily route wires to the APM beneath. The APM is mounted on the bottom and once it is mounted there is no reason to take it out as everything is accessible, but if the need arises, the bottom plate is designed to pop out more easily than the rest of the chassis so there is no need to take it all apart.


Sorry for the delay, we have been quite busy. Stay tuned for upcoming products. Happy Flying.

Nice!  How close would this come to fitting in a Hawk Sky?

looks cool, would love to get my hands on one

A electronic chassis for the Skywalker would be even better.

These chassis are of top notch quality and the result is great. Very nIce and tidy, but i have an issue with the weight of it. My EasyStar (upgraded with a Turnigy Inrunner 2835 2200kv) doesn't fly very well with the chassis compared to a standard installation with everything just shoved into the plane . Why not make a alternative version cut from stiff balsa or thin ply.

Yep, what about the same thing for Skywalker?

Will this mount fit the Bixler v1.1?
