The new longer wing brings the Merlin Lite stall speed below 24 knots which is the limit for the FAA Part 103 rule. Have a look at the 3-hinge Fowler flap. This flap is slotted and deflects to 50 degrees which really slows down the aircraft yet when fully retracted is very clean. Combined with the cantilevered wing our Merlin lite with this high aspect ratio wing will have a L/D ratio suitable for motor-gliding or efficient flight under electric power. Wing span increases to 32 feet.
