Default Gremlin Plans?

Good Day All,

Where can I find some On line Gremlin Plans?

Any information about the type of airfoil used would be helpful.

Thanks

Marcus

Take my advise-just buy the $35.00 Gremlin kit instead of wasting a bunch of time and money trying to figure it out. But good luck either way.

Hey Marcus- I hope you have plenty of flying time, to fly the Gremlin. They fly like a nice little sport plane if flying slow. If you have a good performance engine, watch out! This plane will react very fast. This plane is like a Indy car with wings. I came out a split-s high dive and put it to full throttle when I started to pull the nose up. This plane shot across the field at 131mph on radar! The engine at that time was a OS .35 right out of the box. No modifications.

Dave, your "Gremlin" looks like a SPAD Sickle to me. I have a pair of them with TT Pro .46 engines. You are correct. Hang on to your hat when you open the throttle. Mine have become my every day flyers since I have so much fun with them.

Default Gremlin fun

Square Nozzel-My plane is a $35.00 Gremlin kit, but I cut my own fuse. I use a old Gremlin fuse for a pattern. but cut the front off. How do you like the TT Pro engine? I see they cost a lot less than my OS .46 AxII. It also looks like the os has a little more hp 1.63, your engine is 1.43. Happy flying to everyone

Dan, I've been very happy with the thunder tiger engines. Never had a problem with them and they turn what sounds like pretty high RPM in the air. Never had a tach on them. I always avoided OS because of the liner plating issues they had a while ago. The price was also a factor. There must be something to them. The Quicky 500 guys in New England use the box stock TT40 exclusively.

I spent some time in your area back in the early 60's. I was stationed at Selfridge in an Air Refueling Squadron. My wife came from western Michigan. No ties there anymore.
