    Plans for small aircraft similar to the Cri cri Cricket?


    I was wondering if you guys know of any other aircraft out there are similar in size as the Cri Cri. I do not believe the plans for the Cri Cri are available in the US. I like that it uses 2 small engines and performs so well. I like that it is as small as some giant scale r/c planes and can even use the same engines.

    The CriCri designer, Michel Colomban, has a new design called MC30 Luciole.
    Unfortunately, the plans are NOT sold in the U.S.

    Another European design is the SD-1 from Igor Spacek.
    Both are powered by Briggs and Stratton or Honda engines. Try google for info.

    Teenie Two, Hummelbird, one of the Taylor designs, Corby Starlet. You are not going to fly any of these on less than a VW. The Cri Cri has to be the most complicated homebuilt ever designed; its like building a spacecraft. Its cool though.

    Onex (a single place Sonex) is a simple prepunched metal kit using pulled (pre-punched) rivets.

    If you want simple and inexpensive the Flybaby - but this is timber and fabric and probably does not meet your performance criteria. Free plans if you are an EAA member. Aircraft engine required - possibly O-200 or whatever you can scrounge.

    Thatcher CX4 - but would take some effort since this is mostly a scrtch building exercise.
