Mini Gremlin #2

Since both the full size and mini Gremlins fly like a dream, I could not leave well enough alone and decided to build a very slightly different one.

For this one, I increased the wing span to 34″, and used symmetrical airfoils from the corsair build, hot cutting them to have a slight upturn at the TE of the outside airfoil.  Supposedly this helps a wing design offset the natural tendency to track downward….
This slight upturn is only 1/2″ and is difficult to see from the photos, but does give the span of the wing a slightly different angle tip to tip.

And of course, speed is always an issue! The earlier mini gremlin uses a 1400kv motor, and while quite respectable, I’m curious what kind of control I would have with a faster gremlin.
So, this build has a 2200kv motor, swinging a 7×5 prop…..
