    Default FX-3 on the Cirrus Owners Pilot Assoc Forum

    There is a lot of interesting discussion on the COPA Forum. Almost free advertising for Carbon Cubs! However, it is helpful to see how others are configuring their FX-3.

    Must be in the paid section? Couldn’t find it with a search, could be my searching ability of course ;-)

    I can show you several configurations that have been done so far by my customers. The majority of them have had G3x with A/P and GTX345R for avionics. Most have had 31's and the 83" prop. I am attaching a picture of my current demo. Just plain ole boring RED!!!

    Sorry about that. I have been researching Cirrus and joined the COPA. It is on the paid site.

    Not boring - cool colo! I think I saw you flying over Lake Travis near The Reserve a few weeks ago.

    Only the classified section is open. The rest of the forums require a COPA membership.
    Many COPA guys getting in to the CubCrafters life!!
    (I did two years ago!)

    I'm one of those Cirrus folks who just posted on the referenced COPA thread; just put a deposit down on an FX-3. Lots to learn but very excited about learning it! It's over a year until delivery so nothing happening soon.

    Congratulations! I have been studying Carbon Cubs since they started producing them. Am very interested in the FX-3 and considering options. Also, I'm interested in learning more about Cirrus for a different mission. I'm anxious to read more posts on their experiences building the FX-3 parts in Yakima.

    Me too. Cirrus is a very cool airplane and a great go to plane. The pilot and owner group is a friendly and knowledgeable bunch.
    I have a July build date for the FX3 and meantime have been really enjoying the SS. Never thought it would be so much fun!

    Hi all! I'm new to the FX-3 ownership and a Cirrus SR-22 owner as well. I love both airplanes. I have a 2006 SR-22 Signature Edition that I've had all over the country. I just picked up my FX-3 at the factory last week. I can't get enough of the FX-3 right now, but I know they both have their missions. I haven't put the numbers to it, but I'm thinking that if my trip is over about 5 hours of flight time, it will be Cirrus flying and under that the Cub. Obviously, there are other factors. My Cirrus is hangared at an airport approximately 1 hour from my home. My Cub is right here on our ranch. Cirrus has to land on pavement, Cub, well lets just say it doesn't need much :-). Payload, if it fits in the Cub it basically can fly. If it's more than that then we go in the Cirrus. I used to be a member of COPA but I tried to scale back on some membership stuff.

    This FX-3 is way more than I ever thought the plane would be. And the factory team is even better. I understand customer service better than most and the Cubcrafters crew gets it too. Feel free to contact me if you have questions. Although I'll probably just give glowing recommendations :-)
