An afternoon off and it was a chance to test fly the production Merlin on Aggies- as well as see the all round good bloke Roger with his Caldera. It was a chance to show off the Merlin to other model pilots as well as to have a play before next week’s welsh open.
Aggies is a well used slope by Paragliders and hand gliders. When I got there today you just couldn’t move for hang gliders but there was a remarkable amount of co-operation and as hang glider pilots seem to spend even more time talking about flying than we do, my chance to launch soon came.
One model worht a mention was a rather lovely looking Blanik.
Wow she went well! Thanks to roger for these pics!
The Merlin is my current new toy and I still feel like a kid at Christmas flying, driving home still punching the air after a days flying is cool! It was great to see Roger again. I might not have raced in 7 months but I can’t wait to see what the Merlin will do against the clock.
