My Corvair-Powered Merlin

A short sunset flight in my Corvair-powered Merlin on Full Lotus floats. Only music is the sound of the engine :-) Also includes some footage of my new hanger door system. I installed the engine and fabricated the cowling over the winter. Very pleased so far - the noise and vibration levels are much better than my 2-stroke Rotax.
