Icarus Cup: Another video

This video taken during the Icarus cup from a multicopter is showing some pylon racing with Merlin from Multiplex. I'm one of the 3 pilot whe are racing. This pylon races have been a great experience and lots of adrenalin to make the show for the numerous spectators present all this afternoon. I also had the opportunity to try and demonstrate the Dogfighter from MPX too. This 90cm wingspan bird is pretty nice and flies very very well !


  1. Hi,

    I saw on your bolg the videos where you have some pylon racing with the MPX Merlin. I wonder if you have done something special for the wings fixing.

    I have a kinetic800 (Merlin clone) and just loose one wing today because of the clips. There was already a lot of vertical flexibility due to loose connection between the carbon wing spar&plastic retainers arrangement.

    Thanks for your blog: always interesting posts.

    Regards, JMF

  2. Hi,
    I don't have this problem with the Merlin. I haven't modified the wing fixing. Probably the difference between the original and a cheap copy ;) !

  3. Thanks, and I' m sure that you are right about the explanation.



Finally, my first flight of 2019 !

Happy new year to all ! Best wishes for 2019 ! I finally could do my first flight of the new year:  Nice weather, very light breeze but...
