No Woollybacks this year but getting my Merlin finished has given me the chance to get the ballast in and have a real blast off the south coast. I know the Merlin design so well now that a first flight doesn’t seem like a maiden anymore- but that doesn't stop it bringing a smile to my face as the cobwebs and turkey get blown away.
For having a blast throwing the model about without fear of it biting your just have to go a very long way to beat the Merlin. It was only the fading light and lowering clouds that sent me back home.
It’s days out in that air that really spurs you on with the 2016 projects!
