About

MONSTER NXCUB

This aircraft is first and foremost a high-fidelity realism mod of the default Asobo MSFS Cub Crafters NXCub bushplane. It flies like the real thing, hitting all the numbers. The engine's been upgraded to the best Cub Crafters has to offer: the Lycoming 393i 215HP powerplant. Propeller performance too has been accurately modelled. 
But it wouldn't be a monster cub if there wasn't something wicked. And so there is: NOS (Nitrious Oxyde Systems) has been installed for up to 3 minutes of nitro injection giving you an additional 100HP. Great for some STOL take-offs or emergency obstacle climbs!

  • This mod installs as a new aircraft in your hangar and does not require the existing NXCub to be installed.
  • This mod uses the default Asobo G3X (or the WT mod if you have it), so kindly do not report any Garmin issue to me as I can't help you there.
  • Engage NOS either with the switch or the War Emergency Power keybind.

 

Realism and Performance Mod
- High fidelity flight model and Lycoming 393i engine
- Custom thermo dynamics for Oil and CHT, closely matching reality
- Modern Prop Physics and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), including CFD Ground Effect
- Enjoy a cruise speed of over 130 kts, maximum altitude of 14,000 feet and range of 750 nm
- Demonstrated take-off distance of 120 feet and landing distance of 80 feet as in the real NXCub 393i
- Accurate long-range narrow-beam landing lights in aviation-white
- Windshield de-icer installed, activated with the Cabin Heat lever
- Automatic Pitot heat, managed by the G3X
- Accurate and useful camera setup, with the eyes located where they really would be
- Animated windows left and right (since this is a mod on a default Asobo aircraft, there are some caveats: right door cannot be animated, glass of both windows does not animate along with the frames and no change in sound)
- Various switch, lever and label fixes throughout the cockpit

NOS, the Monster in the Cub
- Up to 3 minutes of total Nitrous Oxide injection
- Hulks the Lycoming 393i 215hp instantly to 315hp
- Use short bursts then cool down...oil temperature easily goes critical within 10 seconds
- The NOS cylinder automatically refills whenever you refuel
- Engage with the NOS switch or the War Emergency Power keybind

Default Garmin G3X, but...
- Highly recommend to install the Working Title G3X mod (https://www.workingtitle.aero/packages/g3x/)
- This is a bush plane, and the Garmin knows it...be free from "500 500", "Terrain Terrain" or similar noise
- Customized engine panel with remaining fuel and range data
- Useful annunciations added (NOS Low, Parking Brake, Fuel Imbalance, etc), only works with the WT G3X mod installed
- Radar Altitude added (displays whenever you're less than 2,500 feet AGL)

Typical power settings:
- Normal Rated (100% ... use for take-off): 2,700 rpm / 30 mp
- Performance Cruise (75% rated): 2,450 rpm / 24 mp
- Economy Cruise (65% rated): 2,350 rpm / 21 mp
- Ferry Cruise (60% rated): 2,050 rpm / 15 mp

And finally
- 23 Professional liveries by @STOL Addicts | TheHodge146 on top of the default livery
- Saving the best for last: comes with a coffee-cup holder!

The FMS is not working on GPS Navigation. I am adding some photos to the gallery for you to view. With FMS and AP, the aircraft doesn't follow GPS Navigation.

Please advise.

Reference pictures added to User Gallery.

Really like the look of the Monster NXCub, but following the checklist I can't get it to start...

Deicing don´t work. Bug?

Please add the fuel selector L+R option that I have specifically requested on so many forums.

That welcome change will be awaited in another follow-up update after two days, OK?

THANKS in advance.

Very nice MOD, for me only complain is the lack of real life livery.

And another update, some pretty nice improvements for take-offs and ground handling mostly:

- Much improved ground roll performance to achieve CubCrafters published numbers of demonstrated 120ft / 37m take-offs

- Further improved general ground handling

- Improved CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) ground effect (feel that air cushion)

- Slightly increased rudder authority

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL ADDON THE MONSTER NX CUP IS MY FAVORITE PLANE IN THE HANGAR !!!

The best painter Corina Meyer made me the most beautiful paint there is for the NXCup HB-NXC TICINO

I LOVE YOU FOR THAT

I've been flying flight simulators since 1998

Absolute love flying this around! The work you are doing is invaluable and this update is great.

Is it at all possible to have the Fuel Selector set to "OFF" for C&D start? It's one of my only pet peeves when it comes to aircraft... Is the Alternator simulated/functional?

Excellent bush STOL plane!

Any chance we can get an amphibious/floats version in the future?

Thanks for the amazing aircraft! But the glass doesn't move when I open the windows.

Can you please give an option in this plane for the fuel tank selector: L+R? Like in the Vertigo?

Or automatic?

I made one long wilderness flight in the mid-west and found it to be very turbulent. Is that normal? There were no windy conditions.

I would not have thought that this plane could have gotten any better. Man, was I ever wrong! Thanks for continuing to work and improve one of the best planes in the sim! https://youtu.be/E_V50S3A9-Q

Love you to the backcountry and back!

Thank you for this update. I haven't flown it yet but I am certain I won't be disappointed.

Does the AP, Nav and VS work on this one?

Awesome update man, such a fantastic aircraft! I appreciate you calling upon me as your paint guy for this, it was a good time making them.




Roadmap
These items are currently on the list and will be processed soon!
Backlog
Suggestion, bugs and ideas for the future.

  • Version 1.10.1 October 13, 2022

    - Much improved ground roll performance to achieve CubCrafters published numbers of demonstrated 120ft / 37m take-offs
    - Further improved general ground handling
    - Improved CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) ground effect (feel that air cushion)
    - Slightly increased rudder authority

  • Version 1.10.0 September 22, 2022

    - Study level simulation of all systems
    - Latest flight model, including a fully enabled CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) including ground effect CFD
    - Further improved ground handling and flap behavior
    - Visual vibration feedback of RPM and ground movement to the control stick model
    - Correct deflection of the control stick, also depending on speed (in response to max deflection of control surfaces)
    - Improved Oil and CHT thermo dynamics
    - Animated windows left and right (right door has no animations defined in the base 3D model so that's still missing, glass does not animate along with the frames, and no change in sound due to default sound pack limitations)
    - Oiled rudder pedals (no squeacks)
    - Removed cockpit light leaks
    - Propeller turns in correct CW direction (Asobo has CCW ... oops)
    - Suspension fully animated
    - Detailed electrical simulation of battery (12V / 16Ah), generator and all components (from Pitot heat to light bulbs)
    - Avionics switch works correctly
    - Cabin Heat and Alt Air logic inverted (pull should be "on" ... again oops Asobo)
    - And last but most definitely not least...a HUGE livery collection by @STOL Addicts | TheHodge146

  • Version 1.9.0 April 28, 2022

    - Added CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics)

    - Modern propeller physics
    - Revised flight model based on newly found XCub data
    - Tuned performance (takeoff, roll, landing, inertia, etc) very closely after watching numerous NXCub videos
    - Very low RPM possible (650 idle static, which is correct for this engine) enabling low energy approaches for even better STOL performance and control
    - Fixed broken animations (rudder rod and nose wheel) since the base model for the NXCub was fixed by Asobo

  • Version 1.0.2 February 19, 2022

    - Default Steady instead of Pulse landing light switch set
    - Custom thermodynamics code for Oil and CHT temperatures
