After months of hard work, sweat and tears (from laughter), the FT Gremlin micro quad has finally arrived. Part of the Flite Test DNA is our passion for DIY plane projects and with the new FT Gremlin, you are now able to create your very own DIY micro quad!
Some of the things we love about the FT Gremlin:
- You don’t have to use carbon fibers—you can use wood or plastic as well
- It can be flown in a variety of environments—inside and outside
- It is the perfect size—sub 250g
- It’s safer than most quads this size
With this passion project our hope is that we can encourage and enable your creativity, resourcefulness and personality as you design and build your own FT Gremlin. You can let your imagination run wild while not compromising the flight experience, time or performance. Our desire is also to create a space where you can share your Gremlin plans with other members of the FT community so that we all can learn and grow while having a great way to connect with other RC hobbyists.
Check out some of the designs from our FT team:
Another big goal of ours with the FT Gremlin is to bring the build plans into schools like we have with several of our FT planes. We’re currently creating lessons surrounding the entire build experience . Our hope is for students to learn problem solving and critical thinking skills while they create their own designs from the ground up—we’re not merely asking them to assemble a quad. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
