An interview and flight demo from the Airbus industries made Cricri. Very contemporary.
If building, you must consider one of these in your panel. Light and full of data, including G meter and compass

An excellent site for the 3W engine. The 240iB2 has just been deleted from the range and has been replaced by the 26 HP 275 XiB2 engine.
Electric Cricri site. This aircraft won the worlds fastest electric powered aircraft competition at 140 kts - from two 35 HP brushed DC motors. Bet the flight time is around 10 minutes?

Shannon lives in Rangiora in New Zealand. He is building his Cricri with the advantage on CNC machining with his large CNC table router. This is definitely the way to cut out parts for this aircraft.
