Electric Cri Cri From EADS

The European consortium EADS has introduced a quad-electric-motor version of the 1970s French design, the single-place, aerobatic 'Cri Cri" (Cricket). Unveiled at the Green Aviation Show in Paris, the new lithium-battery-powered Cri Cri was redesigned in composite for lower weight and is said to fly 30 minutes at 60 knots.
