Aircraft weight increased during the design and manufacturing of the XV-5A, in spite of the close surveillance and careful consideration of the principal program objectives and the best way to meet the needs of the Army. The overweight estimate of 335 pounds becomes secondary when the additional system lift 1000 pounds is considered. At reduced load factor 3.72 rather than 4.0, the endurance times under VTOL conditions are predicted to be in accordance with the specification.
