CubCrafters made its mark in the backcountry, serving up a host of kitbuilt and light sport aircraft before coming on the scene with its certified XCub and NXCub. FLYING's Editor-in-Chief Julie Boatman heads to CubCrafters’ headquarters in Yakima, Washington, to try out their latest designs.

Follow along as we test out the FX-3—and see what the EX-3 is capable of off-airport, including an honest-to-goodness hayfield—in this snapshot from our Q4 2022 issue of FLYING.
