I poste this video in RAH, thn thought some in RAP might find it
iteresing. That second plane looks a lot like the bumblebee, maybe
even smaller. Would any of you fly it?

That's Ray Stits' Skybaby. It's in the EAA museum AFAIK. I think it still
holds the smallest airplane ( wingspan) record. there were a few
homebuilders that got involved in a ****ing contest for the smallest around
that time.
He said it was a handful to fly. You can see that on the takeoff. One of
the biggest problems it had was the ASI didn;'t work worth a damn because
it wasn't possible to get the pitot far enough away from the prop wash..

Saw the first one at OSH many years ago. Pretty cool machine. There's at
least one that flew with two model airplane jet engines! There's another
youtube clip somewhere of one doing some low level aerobatics.

How cool is that, eh? IIRC the takeoff roll is very long, but once it's
up and going it's fine.

I like the Cri Cri, once I get enough experience, I just might get me
one O'Dem.

Yeah, they are cool! There doesn't seem to be any plans available
anymore, though someone is selling copies on CD in Ebay. I don't know if
there is some reason he decided no to sell them anymore. Someone in RAH
would know, I'm sure.
