hi all cricri fan's

I am david living in tahiti french polynesia
I start built of my cricri from original plan nbr 90 from mister Colomban , i have some contacts of friends in france flying cricri's with JPX engine
the major issu is the engine actually, so alternate engine ZDZ 210 or 3W are very intresting options
do you have some contacts of ZK-CRI owner ? just need to have some informations regarding 3W engine reliabilty and installation configuration

From memory Wayne has had two failures with the 3W engines so far. Not the best for the low amount of hours flown. After browsing the large model aircraft forums, I decided on the ZDZ engines because they seemed to hold up better and were pretty rugged.

I have sent you a PM about contacting Wayne.

hi ,
engines are VALMET engines , no more produced , reliable but less power than JPX 210cc
with this engines aircraft cruise speed was limited to 160 mk/h
this airplane has been crash and pilot killed during airshow following very lo level rolls... and stall
cricri is not a toy and could be dangerous if you did not take care of basic aviation rules
see attached 2 more cricri built by my friend daniel with same colors
