Excellent.
Garrison's articles are why I subscribe to FLYING.
Aero textbooks hide ocassional jewels of wisdom in useless equations. Peter translates them in his Technicalities column, so that pilots don't become a topic in his Aftermath column.

Been a FLYING subscriber off and on since 1974 and have always enjoyed Peter Garrison's contributions most. His willingness to tackle a project as big as Melmoth with no prior education or experience in aircraft construction is just amazing. His Melmoth II looks faster with the thin wing but I really liked the mid-span dihedral on Melmoth I. Don't know why...

Mid span dihedral like a Thorp T-18, Jodel, Falconar, etc. My Falconar F-12 was like on rails when banked at 45 degrees.

Agree.
First Melmoth had that elementary form follows function look. MII certainly makes more sense and is more efficient... but guess it's my age showing.
