I flew my Mermaid for the first time in forever. I forgot how great it flies.

Regarding smooth landings, I found moving the battery back helped relieve my nose heavy CG and gave my elevator more authority. This allows me to control speed with elevator and I can land without a splash.

Added a little more color to mine. The best flying at our lake is at dusk. The new paint makes it easy to follow.

Vibrant colors are always easier to see.

Nice work.
