    Supposedly they would have to beef up the FX3 so much for the 393 that it would weigh what an X Cub weighs. FX3 and big engine X Cub have the same power to weight. I'll take the FX3.

    “But it’s a nosewheel”-Lee that time he was excited to see a twin beech, and then when it touched down he saw the wheel in the wrong spot. Hahahahaha

    Or when I sent Cathy to pick up a part and he wouldn't go because she was flying the Tri-Pacer.

    Is that at max gross or at more typical solo operating weights?

    A big engine XCub with Cub gear, 35 inch ABW, and a BBW, landed and parked next to me back in January at my favorite dirt strip. I have to say my FX-3 looked quite "girly" when parked next to it. I consoled myself with the thought that I probably was having about the same amount of fun for about $100k less expenditure. I don't really want to drag 35 inch Bushwheels through the air anyway.

    I was impressed by its downhill landing distance and the takeoff distance. Quite likely a better pilot than me but I'm quite confident his solo power to weight was better than mine.
