Why a Concept X5?
Well, most of you know the variety of CX planes over the years, and in my opinion, we are still having the best wind-penetrating plane on the market with the CX4. But being good here needs a trade-off in other parts of the flight envelope. Saying that the CX4 was never known to be the killer dead-air plane.
We did several things here…
The first one was to move the flight envelope towards better dead-air characteristics but giving away only a little of the wind penetration abilities. So, thinner airfoil with a wing area of 19,5 sqdm. New, more aerodynamical fuselage with slip off nose (designed by Laurynas himself) and finally – a solid core wing!
That was one of the reasons, why I asked Laurynas for his cooperation – he is the best producer of solid core wings and also one of the top overall quality producers worldwide…From the scratch he was able to match the defaults concerning weights. An AUW of 210-230gr should be achieved very easily.
So far, we have
wing – CW40 layup with HM carbon reinforcement ~105gr
Fuselage – ~ 35gr
tailset – average ~ 10.3gr
Simply its only model won a world Championship twice in a row !
