Dick's Merlyn seemed to have a higher canopy top than outlined on the plans and I suggested a cross brace inside the fuse between the fuse sides where the wings Leading Edges meet the fuse. This will prevent the wings eventually crushing the fuse at the LE. I'll be sure and do this on my web site build thread.

I have looked at my video of Dick's maiden launch and laugh every time I see the Merlyn dip almost immediately after Don Harris launched it. Dick hit the spoilers .... maybe he did something else too at that moment ... we will never know. I have a video of Dick's second flight,he launched the Merlyn by himself effortlessly. Well done Dick. The videos will appear on my web site in a few weeks.

P.S. That is Dick's OLY lll in the first photo.

Do you take orders over the phone? I would prefer to not E-mail my credit card number. Could someone E-mail the order form without the card number and give you the number over the phone?
