To take full advantage of aerodynamic improvements, XCub is outfitted with a constant-speed composite prop that is both extraordinarily lightweight and efficient. Aerodynamic changes coupled with the new propeller add up to significant performance increases. With a top speed of 153 miles per hour and a cruise of 145 miles per hour XCub truly redefines the performance envelope for this family of aircraft.
Cruising at 135 mph with a fuel capacity of 49 gallons range is extended to 800 miles. Pilots who want to go even further can throttle back to an economy cruise of 120 mph and stretch operational range to over 1,000 miles. This makes XCub an extraordinarily versatile aircraft.
