the Cri-Cri!

Unread post by flightmaster » Mon Aug 16, 2010 12:11 pm

Haha, if you've seen this plane then you would laugh with me! :lol:

Although, I absolutely love this airplane! it's the smallest twin airplane with a flight range of about 600km's!!
Travels at about 160knts!

This is a perfect home project airplane, I definitely plan on building one! It's most aluminum with two 15hp engines,
yes you read right, two 15hp engines!! Like I said I love this little twin engine plane!

It's perfect specially for farmers or someone that enjoys to fly for really cheap!

Some aviators even use little jet engines instead of the 15hp petrol engines!!

I have the plans for this plane if anyone is interested.

Just build your own from scratch. use the plane's designs as an idea, but come up with your own. Like what I said, I can supply you with the plans for FREE.
Use your imagination....Learn about building aricraft, balancing, constructing etc etc....Learn about Airfoils, Types of materials...
Then the plans will make more sense.

At this moment I'm working on a plan to build a very basic ultralight. It'll probably not cost more than R4000 to construct.

If I look at the plane, I would deffenately build it as per plan from Allu sheet and extrution.It is so small that I believe it will by far be the cheapest and fastest way to build the airframe VS. Plastics.
There should not be mpre than a few sheets of 2024 in it.

Where can I get plans for this thing?

Thanx. Just one thing to remember. If you want to build it as a stock standard plans-built cri-cri, the caa will require a letter from the manufacturer of the kit or plans stating that the unique plan # was not issued to anyone else.
