Attractive price for sure, but if my Merlin goes in I think I will buy another Merlin. Maybe i'm just old fashioned, but I would rather buy from a company that designs a plane than from one that just copy's others work.

Dang wish it was warmer, my Merlin just gathering dust.

Happy flying.

Same here I have a few multiplex planes and all of them have been well designed and fly well. I would rather send my money to multiplex for that reason especially when the price difference is so small.

That price includes all the electrics and servos, price difference a bit bigger now eh,
especially if you use the overpriced multiplex power option which would cost over $120 for the motor, ESC and prop in the UK.

I wouldn't use the stock gear it wouldn't have the performance I want so it does matter if they are included or not.

Motor only running for verticals most of the time if you had sound on.
Difficult to tell speed as it was zoomed in most of time with no static object as a comparison.
Looks ok to me, not after ballistic.

Yeah depends on what you are after. My Merlin is in the ballistic holly category.

Nice, have you fixed the wings on a bit better than stock, heard they can come off at high speed.

Honestly I can't get the wings off of mine. I have tried but they are stuck. All I can figure is I got a little messy with the CA when I was building the plane and test fit the wings before the CA had completely dried I know the wings are never going to come off mine. Not sure on a stock merlin though.
