I think this is it. A very poor picture taken by me at Cosford in 2014.

Forgot about this video.

How much fun can you have with 15 or so gremlin type planes?

Finished Gremlin combat aircraft. Fitted the rest of the gear, and added some fins. They are removable with screws so can be swapped without glue.

On mine and on the plan it shows the fins angled out. I used a bit of trailing edge. I am sure it will fly as it is, but you never know.

Mine fins are also bolted on for knock off ability. So far not required.



82. My old 35mhz channel frequency.

Tis a Gremlin.

I love mine.

Full specs etc here.Combat Gremlin


I have the plan as a PDF if you want a copy.


I had severe elevon flutter on mine. Check out this video.



First instance at about 2.35 mins in. Cured with a strip of "blenderm" over the hinge joint. Power from a very old worn out Thunder Tiger GP.42.

Predictions done.

Flying to the Far East tomorrow, so no chance of doing them after FP3.

Will also be away the following weekend, just hope I can get some internet access in Vietnam.

If my score tumbles after Italy you will know I was unsuccessful. Great excuse if I need one.

I voted rarely.

Superglue is not my go to glue. I much prefer aliphatic or epoxy. Sadly over the years I have become intolerant to the fumes. I have to don a full face mask whenever I do use it.

At least I have an excuse for my slow builds..

As a mainly oily flyer Brian`s column was always a go to for me.

A loss to his family and friends all over the world.

Maidened this yesterday.

Goes like stink on a TT42GP.

Ran out of elevator on finals (dead stick) and it landed flat in a field of sugar beet. No damage.

CofG amended and it awaits its second flight.

I am sure I saw a post a few days ago where someone was looking for this plan or something very similar to convert to electric, blowed if I can find it though.

Thank you Stephen.

I had seen your thread, but had not realised it was the same mode.

A motor will be going on mine, not sure of size yet though. It is also a few builds down the list.

08/08/2019 18:48:02

I also have a small chuck glider that I would like to electrify.


A set up for this would also be good please.

At work today with no TV or Radio, so my predictions are in well before FP3.

Oh dear.

See you at the bottom of the league.

I am still waiting on a few bits from Far Far away (China), before I can commence my build(s).


Keep posting so I can keep learning.

Just back from a days flying.


Are these the bits you need Alan?




Fresh out of props, but there are two spinners, landing gear and a fresh set of doors and legs.


I may even have the door sequencer somewhere as well.


Make me a sensible offer and they are yours.


PM me to discuss.

I used them for some spares for my FW190.

What do you need Alan as I now have a kit of parts smile d
