hi wrenchtwister !
I have beeen watching your post since a couple of weeks. - hoping somebody would reply in the states, but obviously nobody did...
as you know the cricri comes from france, and there are a few flying in germany. my project is a BREEZY, but the engineer who is certifying my plane built and flies a cricri. if you are interested please contact me through schmidt@rundflug.net !
regards, karl

The CriCri was developed by Chris Heintz and is no longer marketed.
I just checked www.zenithair.com to see if I could find the timeline on all the CH designs. No luck so far.
Those are all the facts I know.

This much is hearsay which I haven't been able to confirm - Some CriCri were subject to control surface flutter.
Here's what the web has to say on that -
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&as_q=flutter&as_epq=cri-cri&as_oq=&as_eq=&num=100&lr=&as_filetype=&ft=i&as_sitesearch=&as_qdr=all&as_rights=&as_occt=any&cr=&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&safe=images

Do you know about the CriCri email list?

The Cri-Cri was developed by Michel Columban. Heinz did sell plans and a few kits. Only those Cri-Cris in which Heinz was involved had the flutter. The problem is well documented and a builder who follows the design of Columban can build a safe aircraft.

I have a full set of plans (mostly full scale) as well as the very best Manual that I have ever seen and am willing to sell these at the price that I paid for it.
