AXIS (XS480) Sport Aerobatic Trainer

From: $159.00

The AXIS™ (XS480) builds on the excitement and aerobatic prowess of the original SHAFT™ (480) it replaces. Sporting our unique D-Truss™ wing construction the AXIS features a thick symmetric airfoil, low wing loading, and generous moments to dish out smooth and precise handling regardless of the airspeed, alpha, or aerobatic maneuver thrown at it. Updated aggressive styling, hard points for the addition of optional floats, and strategic reinforced of the wing and tail groups with carbon composite materials position the AXIS to become your next timeless classic.
