What they Do
The SkyFun is a delta wing flyer made from high-pressure Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), the Skyfun is extremely stiff, has a gloss like surface. It’s easy to fly for beginners and fun for more experienced pilots.
The Bixler 2 is made from tough Expanded Polyolefin (EPO) foam, this model plane has a large wing span for longer flight times and/or bigger payloads. Like the SkyFun, it is pretty easy to fly but fun for an advanced pilot too.
Why they’re Cool
The SkyFun design is pretty crash resistant, which makes it especially good for a novice, but it is good enough that a pilot won’t get bored as they become a more advanced flyer. It’s actually pretty fast.
The Bixler 2 is fast to assemble and easy to fly. It has plug-in wings to make it easy to transport too. This bird also has good payload capacity and room for add-in equipment like a camera for First Person Viewing (FPV).
