New CubCrafters Models
CubCrafters has announced the latest upgrades to the experimental versions of its Carbon Cub adventure aircraft and they include an entirely new engine and a useful load equal to the plane’s empty weight. The new EX-3 (amateur-built experimental) and FX-3 (builder assist) models are significantly different from previous models. They look pretty much the same as earlier models but under the cowl and Ceconite, there are major upgrades. Powering the new aircraft is the new CC363i engine that was developed by CubCrafters with Superior Air Parts and Aero Sport Power, which makes 186 horsepower and features weight-saving and performance-enhancing features unique to this engine The fuselage and wings have also been redesigned internally and the useful load is now 997 pounds.
“The Carbon Cub has a well-earned reputation as the performance leader among adventure aircraft, and now, with the introduction of the new EX-3 and FX-3 models, we are raising the performance bar even higher,” said CEO Randy Lervold. “In fact, the thrust generated by the new aircraft is 20 percent higher than any previous Carbon Cub!”
