The Merlin is our best selling West Wings kit. Not only does she look good and perform well in flight but its a popular model for converting from free flight to be controlled via RC.
Its a great starter model for traditional balsa building from a plan and also for teaching beginners the basics.
To get the best performance, west wings have chosen the best wing section possible to ensure that every owner achieves the kind of success that gets them hooked into the fabulous world of modelling! The Merlin has become the standard model that schools use to teach the principles of flight. The combination of sheet and built-up construction is ideal for understanding the needs and techniques of weight saving aligned to those of high performance.
Whether launched by hand or from a towline/bungee, the Merlin is stable and rewarding.
The kit features all pre-cut components to make the whole assembly process even easier. Made from optimum grades of wood to suit each part of the design. Some need to be extra strong, where others require light weight as their priority, we believe this attention to detail pays in the long run.
As a first model, there's no better choice than a West Wings Merlin. Specifications:
