First Flight Cricri Electric engine




September 9, 2010 The all-electric Cri Cri, the first airplane acrobatics of the four engines, made his first official flight to Le Bourget airport near Paris last week (September 3). The morning flight was good, all systems worked well, and the pilot reported an excellent maneuverability. Although it was a great flight was relatively short as Chrissy returned to Earth after seven minutes. The Cri Cri was developed to sail for 30 minutes at 59 knots and reach speeds of 135 knots acrobatics and climbing to 1,000 feet per minute.


The aerobatics team includes many innovative technologies such as Composite, that reduce the weight of the cell and compensate for the added weight of the batteries, four brushless electric motors with propellers, CO2 emissions have, without drive noise emissions and significantly to lithium batteries of low comparatively high thermal energy density.

The Cri Cri-test is a system integration with low electric technologies in support of projects such as our hybrid drive system for helicopters, said Jean Botti, Chief Technology Officer of EADS. We hope to get many useful information about this project. In the near future will power the battery is not capable of large aircraft.

The Cri Cri-was jointly organized by EADS Innovation Works, Aerospace Saintonge compounds, and the Association of Cri Cri-developed green.

Engines on airplanes consume a vast amount of fuel in order to run, that's why electric airplanes are a major breakthrough. The cost of flying airplanes would definitely lessen.

Very cool blog! I have been a home built aircraft nut since I was a kid. I looked all over for different plans and found so many I wanted to build.I finally acquired Cri Cri plans and am going to start as soon as weather permits. In my searches I acquired some public domain license plans and thought I would share them with you and your readers. If you or anyone is interested you can check them out at http://tiny.cc/ex9ji
