... and who knows, perhaps a Cri Cri could be a good sim project for someone, sometime! :)

Looks like the Cri Cri pilot doesn't even have room to close the canopy:isadizzy:

Funny pic!

There is a FS2004 version of the plane. Have not tried it in FSX.

The beauty of FS is that you don't need to sweat to lose 20, or 200 lbs. :running:

I saw one of these at an airshow some years ago. It's basically a large model aircraft!!! Fully aerobatic too:isadizzy: Afaik there are also tiny jet engined versions too.:d

Reminds me of a SPEED RACER episode when the MAMMOTH CAR was driving next to a tiny "bubble" car...:mixedsmi:

Yes, I seem to remember someone flying a Cri-Cri through a C-5. I'm sure it was the enormous American aircraft, not one of the enormous Russian ones.

Don't the jet ones have an endurance of something like five minutes or thereabouts? I remember reading that somewhere, too.

Insane little aircraft. Gotta love 'em! :costumes:

Canīt really agree to that, these donīt even get the weird-look-bonus in my opinion... The sound is just, ah, when it flew at a local airshow I just waited for it to make place for real aircraft....:d Itīs allways a matter of taste for sure.... That photo is great by the way, I love how the jet pilot, kind of undecisive...

This may help you out: http://flight.cz/cricri/english/

Think there is also a download for FS9.
