Do you have any recomendations for a beginner / first FPV plane? I fly copters at the moment and fancy a plane but always been exclusively FPV so far..

I made my own Night Walrus 2 years ago. When this came out I considered buying it, but the price is considerably higher than the day walrus & its not one I fly very often. (FPV stuff now) So I left it. Having seen your build log, I’m glad I did. HK COULD have made a really nice neat job of all those wires & embedded them into the foam. Instead, it’s not much better than my own made creation. Plus there still using that cheap rubbish prop & spinner. I have an Alloy spinner & Carbon blades. I would pay more for those, but it’s the mess of wires that really puts me off.
They fly great though. Mine is old and more than a little rough round the edges now, so maybe HK will address the few remaining flaws by the time mine is ready to be retired & I may yet purchase one???
Great review, by the way.

Seeking advice please Painless….
Everytime I fly a Bixler I crash it, flew the Walrus for 1st time today & it was almost like jumping in a daily driver car you haven’t driven for 10years (comfortable & familiar), but here’s the thing- Im a noob!
REALLY wish I could get along with the Bix & don’t know why I can’t, but now thinking the Walrus might be the way to go for me…
Any idea’s as to why I have such trouble with the Bix?
Not really a fan of having a prop in front when I know “Unscheduled Landings” can & will be happening???
Thank you again in advance…

vn. I just got the one w/o the lights. I did not use the wing bolts because the morons did not line up the mounts properly so I used packing tape on the top and bottom I hope it will hold….

I don’t think it’s a problem flying FPV with the propeller in front of me. OK the video footage doesn’t look that good but I think flying is the fun part.
