“Merlin HV 103 has slimmer wing shape which allows for higher speed. For its practicality, good performance and affordability it is ideal for general sports flying and touring.
This single seat high-wing ultra-light aircraft's fuselage is of a semi-monocoque construction with vertical structural members and longitudinal stringers. The front fuselage, from the firewall to the rear of the cockpit consists of a riveted aluminium alloy tub. The door is top-hinged, supported by a gas strut in the open position.
The wings as well as the tail surfaces are fully aluminium skinned. The aircraft has a fixed tricycle undercarriage with two moulded composite cantilever main legs and a steel tube steerable and telescopic noseleg.
This model is equipped by the two cylinder two-stroke Rotax 582 with 65 horsepower. The reliable engine is fitted with a three blade ground-adjustable DMP1 composite propeller.
