X-Series Outback

Originally designed or rugged Alaskan conditions

The big tundra tyre option coupled with the Wizard-3 wing will give you some amazing landing options. The X-Series Outback in this configuration also makes for a great hang glider tug or for towing banners and stock mustering. Also available with the Streak-2B.

Option up the X-Series Outback with the Tundra undercarriage and your landing options open right up. With it’s Rotax 582-DCDI 65HP engine, you will have plenty of power up your sleeve. The X-Series Outback is a workhorse suitable for stock mustering, inspecting fences and waterholes.

It is easy to get in and out of, and the fit-out allows for greater visibility which is ideal for photographers. The Tundra option allows for landing in harsh terrain not possible with the standard undercarriage. It’s an idea that trike pilots in Alaska have been using successfully for years and works a treat on sand. Floats are available for this model in some countries where certification allows.

The X-Series Outback is available with the slower Wizard-3 wing or the faster Streak-2B wing.


Note: The OUTBACK S comes with the Streak 2B wing in place of the Wizard 3. All other features and options are the same.

Rotax 582DC, 65 HP engine with E type gearbox (electric start). The Blue Head 582 liquid cooled engine has proven itself over the years as a reliable and efficient ultralight engine. The Outback is now standard with electric start and oil injection, making refueling easier and cleaner. The dual radiator system is positioned to allow for optimal airflow, keeping the engine at the right temperature even when used for towing hang gliders or banners. The engine installation is second to none and allows easy access for maintenance.

The Outback is delivered in the standard red powder coating and black binacle. The wing is also Red and Black. It is easy to get in and out of, offers excellent visibility and easy access for maintenance. With 44 litres of fuel the Outback has around 3 hours duration and so is a great cross country trikes. The systems used on the Outback are well and truly tested. Smooth running throttle controls, a park brake, and hand cruise throttle.

Standard Instruments: Asi, Alt, Hr meter, Tacho, EGT & Water Temp. There is also room to mount a panel mount radio such as the Microair. Instrumentation is easy to read. Instrumentation is important and we have included everything that we think is necessary for safe engine and flight management.

Fully upholstered custom tweed seating + Saddle bags are delivered with your Outback. Seating as with all of our models is comfortable for both pilot and passenger. We have added an efficient back support for the pilot, this works equally as well whether or not a passenger is flying with you. Shoulder harnesses are included for the rear passenger. If you are wondering how comfortable Airborne seats really are, go around and try some other models out there. We believe we have the most comfortable seat in the industry.
