Putting a Turbo Gremlin to the Test!

by FliteTest | June 29, 2018 | (2) Posted in Challenges

Gremlins can do just about anything! These little quads are superb aircraft to have in your fleet. Here's a challenge to prove it!

If you're looking for an adrenalin filled mini quad experience, the Turbo Gremlin might be the right racing machine for you. 


Recently, Alex and Matt joined forces to attempt a community suggested challenge. They used a Turbo Gremlin with an E-Flite Mini Apprentice to fly in third person view. Sounds crazy right? Well, it was. 

The Turbo Gremlin

If you want to know more about this affordable micro quad, this very special Gremlin is built for pure performance. 

To make it easier for you, we've put a complete kit together which provides everything you need to build your own Gremlin. Matt Nowakowski, part of our professional quad team here at the shop, designed this multirotor to compete in racing championships. He's been using these very same components to win races!  

If you'd rather not spend a whole load of time building and tuning your new gremlin, Flite Test now offers a service where we can do all of that for you. This takes the hassle out of the experience. If you haven't assembled a quad before, this might be a good option for you. For $49, you can let us know to ship you the kit fully built. This way, you'll be able to take your quad out of the box, bind it and get flying straight away! 

In terms of the electronics, we're now supplying a bunch of new electronics specially designed for our FT Gremlin Class micro quads. You can check out all of the motors we stock on our store here!

Is it possible to make it tilt rotor, place servos on the motor mounts and control the servos individually. Something like the VTOL in edge of tomorrow.

Hi there FT team !

How about building an upside down plane and landing it inverted?
I will let you guys figure out what is meant and what challenge can come out of it.

...no pressure LOL

I hadn't noticed it before, but all your quads are set up with props rotating away from the camera vice towards!
