XT582 Outback

Takes you where you want to go.

If you are looking for a rugged microlight that can handle extra rough or sandy terrain then take a look at the XT-582 Outback. The instrument binnacle makes for easy access for the pilot, perfect for aero towing where the pilot is in and out of the aircraft between tows. The XT-582 Outback is available with 3 wings (slow to fast) - the Merlin, the Cruze or the Streak-3. The Merlin is a slow single surface wing perfect for aero towing - slow enough to handle tandem hang gliders and fast enough for performance hang gliders and ultralight sailplanes. The Merlin is also perfect for float flying enabling the pilot to leave the water faster.

The Cruze or Streak-3 wing turn the XT-582 Outback into a cross country aircraft making it the perfect Outback tourer and allowing the pilot a broader range of landing options, and also making it suitable for stock mustering and fence line inspections.

Powered by the Rotax 582 65HP engine and with optional dual rear disc brakes the XT-582 Outback has more than enough power for normal and towing flight with exceptional stopping power. State of the art digital instrumentation is standard with the Skydat GX2. It features full engine and flight management with fuel flow and accumulated fuel usage in an easy to read glass panel.

Standard features

The XT-582 Outback is Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority Approved and tested to 6g positive and 3g negative under strict government control.

The Rotax 582 65HP engine with electric start is the state of the art engine for ultralight aircraft. With a rebiuld time of 1200 hours this engine has proved itself time and time again with around the world flights being undertaken several times.

The XT Outback is delivered in bright anodized tubes with powder coated steel parts. The drum brake is on the front wheel. Front suspension is via a low maintenance and easily replaceable suspension rubbers on the front fork. A park brake is operated via the front wheel brake.

The latest technology in microlight instrumentation is included in the digital GX2 glass panel instrument. The GX2 is a full engine and flight management instrument with emergency button that flashes red if any of the parameters that are factory preset are exceeded. There is also room to mount a panel mount radio such as the Microair radio which can be factory installed. Add the brilliant Lynx pilot passenger intercom system with king post mounted Black Widow aerial and push to talk button and you are ready to fly and talk to other aircraft or the tower!

The Bolly 3 blade propeller a standard for the XT's runs smoothly and quetly and has excellent performance. The Duratuff version with the toughened leading edge is a must for shale or stony airstrips. There is no need for prop tape with the Duratuff version. Note: Even the Duratuff option can be damaged by stones in certain circumstanses, a prop deflection net a worthwhile option for shale strips.

The mast capture allows the mast to be folded independently of the engine. The means the trike base can be trailered with the mast in the down position. This is a standard featere on all models in the XT range. The fuel tank holds 70 liters of petrol and couple with the 912 rotax four stroke engine gives the pilot a phenominal range. See the spec sheet.

Fully upholstered custom tweed seating is standard on your XT Outback. Seating as with all of our models is comfortable for both pilot and passenger. We have made the XT seat a little bigger for more comfort. Back support for the pilot is essential and ours is perfect for those long flights, and works equally as well whether or not a passenger is flying with you. Inertia reel shoulder harnesses are included for the pilot and passenger.
