A happy new year to all flyers!
New years day had a very short window before the rain was due to return but with 50mph on the edge the temptation to ballast up the Merlin was too much to resist.
You can't help but have fun in those conditions, Once you get the model in the air! With the turbulence making ground handling tough I was glad of the Merlin's 'collar' between the LE and the canopy so I have a good area to grip!
With all that energy the I was simply pointing the Merlin where I wanted and over hearing the passing walkers explain to each other about these 'micro jet engines' it had fitted- Definitely a good morning
