A little bit of news on the Merlin developement. We're completing work on a new fusleage for the Merlin designed for an electric conversion. The Merlin's fuselage has the room so there'll be plenty of room for lipos and a serious motor.
The Merlin's handling with ballast has convinced me that it will carry the weight of the electric with ease.
I'll post some pictures of the new fuselage when I get them.
