Wow, 135 kts? At what RPM? What's the max cruise?!

Max cruise...ONE BILLION KNOTS! :D

This was not in level flight, it was in a shallow dive (about 5° nose down). I constantly retarded throttle as speed picked up to maintain 5500rpm.

My normal cruise is 115-117 @ 5200 or 120-125 @ 5400.

I plan to be there on Friday the 24th. Glasair have told me that I should be able to take a demo flight in the Merlin at Sun ' Fun. Let's see if they deliver.
