What makes the HX50 so fast?

12 Feb 2021

One aspect in particular of the HX50’s design is crucial to giving it the ability to fly fast without needing incredible amounts of horse power. What is it about the HX50’s design that lets it move so efficiently through the air? Well, as you may have guessed, it’s to do with the drag, or lack thereof.

Jason Hill explains how the whole aircraft has been designed to minimise drag and maximise speed, and how this may defy current expectations of what is possible in a light aircraft, but is entirely within the reach of contemporary aerodynamics.
