X-Air Standard. Is it surviving the test of time?


Recommended Posts

Loved mine, flew it all over NSW and Vic. Had it for 10 yrs Great aircraft if you are not in a hurry. Would have another in a shot.

Ever fly it without the fuselage skin?

I'm guessing it would be more draggy without the skin which is less of an issue if you are going slow anyway.

It might take a few knots off cruise and increase fuel consumption but offset against easier and cheaper construction.

Yeah I guess you might be right. It may have less surface to attract a crosswind. But propeller slipstream may be altered abit over rear control surfaces
