Update for 2013
This comment format doesn't lend itself to a reply, but I do look at it from time to time - as do others. If you have found this site useful it is really good to get your feedback. For me - I am fitting a transponder to CRI. This has now become necessary in our local airspace. The fitting has taken a few months - what with other projects. Back in the air soon. I should do some fresh photos!

Issues: Cost of building a Cricri
I often get asked what it costs to build a Cricri. If you don't keep an accurate record it is very difficult to recall over the years that the project takes. It is very spread out. Best not to be to limited with funds. Big items are the canopy, fuel tank, engines and instrument panel. The Dynon 10A is $2400 US for example. Engines are $3000 US each. Trailer is another cost. All aeroplanes cost lots - except perhaps models. If your budget is that short - stick to models.

Beyond flight testing - refining & modifying
Since first flight 2 1/2 yrs ago I have made numerous modifications but still have occasional setbacks. I am now ready to let other competent pilots fly my aircraft, after appropriate briefing. Are you interested?

Flight phase
Now that CRI has flown it would be easy to lose interest in keeping the site up to date. All the big obstacles have been surmounted. If you are interested in the details of flight testing, performance etc, just leave a short note here. It may be sufficient to keep the monologue going. W
