The Merlin flys- a few immediate thoughts

  After goingn together really well tonight gave me a chance to see how my second model went on a dry sunny evening with a light breaze on the slope.  A first flight is always a nervous throw- but the Merlin's new tail help it fly straight from the hand and I was soon beating the hill to try turns and get the ballance of controls right.

  Standing on a hill on your own smiling like a Cheshire cat might get you some stange looks from dog walkers but sometimes it jut can't be beaten!  It could be the new fuselage, new tail or the Merlin's gigaflaps but as a package it all feels to be ballance together.
