Too bad the camera man isn't so great, but really cool plane nonetheless.

Thanks for posting.

Had never seen a video of the Cri-Cri in flight and finding an akro one was great. It seems she's good for +9/-4.5g.

Do they take away all the R/C controls like at R/C shows so someone won't interfer with him?

I would love to have one. Can you imagine having a mode "c" transponder and going into class "B" airspace? Talk about fun.

I wonder what the Vyse is?

Cheap way to rack up multi time, hell, there's even a version with two turbines in it. Now that would be a sweet way to build turbine time Big grin

ULMFlyer,
here are a few other videos, of generally much greater quality than the Utube posted by PPVRA.
Flew it about 20 years ago and it was great fun, the control response was outstanding. hey! wouldn't mind building one for myself now !
So, the link :

Quoting Kearney (Reply 7):

So find out the accident rate of the Cri-Cri.
110 are flying in France. I know of one lost on an overbanked final turn.
And to my limited experience, looks and sounds are not a criterium for safety.
Or are they ?
