I can remember reading about the Moller Merlin 2000, back when I was around 9 years old. I was so excited just imagining the potential. However, that
was 17 years ago and I have yet to see one flying around my neighborhood. I'm beginning to wonder if its not just a hoax to keep money coming in.
I first saw it in Wheels and Wings, I'm sure no one has ever heard of that, but it was very interesting. According to the article it had already been
tested and would go into production soon. The Merlin 2000 was by far superior in looks than anything Moller is working on now. They had a picture and
if I remember right it took 7 computers to fly it, It had a top speed of 357 m.p.h. and could hover and cruise at heights of 400+ feet.
But like I said, that was 17 years ago and I still haven't seen one flying around.
