The XT can be set up
easily by one person. The mast folds independently of the motor. A
gas strut is used to help lift the wing onto the trike base and
requires little effort. High quality Fournales oleopneumatic rear
shock absorbers are used on the rear, with double action
adjustable shock absorbers on the front. The XT now comes standard
with carb heating.
The XT has wide rear
6 inch wheels with redesigned wheel pants.The XT-912 comes
standard with the new Streak 3 wing. PX 20 mylar is used on the
leading edge. This cloth is only available in white with a black
cross weave, it is UV resistant, and is easy to keep clean.
The wing battens are
enclosed and the Streak 3 features easy to load batten ends. No
more struggling with bungee elastics or hard to press springs. The
Streak 3 has a super clean low drag trailing edge. Setting up a
Streak 3 is a one man/woman operation as with all Airborne wings.
The fuel tank holds
72 litres giving the pilot enough airtime for extensive cross
country or circuit work. The CNC milled mast capture has allowed
an efficient means of attaching the engine mounts, the shock
absorbers and the seat frame. The mast is held in place by this
part which has been milled out of solid 6061 grade aluminium. This
method of manufacturing allows for very strong and light weight
components to be used.
Power is supplied by
the reliable Rotax 912 80 HP engine. This runs very smooth and
quiet using around 8-12 litres of fuel per hour. With the 72 litre
(19 US gallon) fuel tank a cruise speed of 55-60 knots the XT is a
true cross country cruiser. This reliable Rotax 912 delivers a
smooth 80 HP to a 3 blade composite
propeller with a CNC milled hub.
