Somewhere around 35 years ago I first started flying Deltas and Flying Wings. I have always found them to be excellent sports flyers and great go to planes. Back 20 years plus ago I built and flew a Combat Grimlin with a hot glow setup on it. Designed for a 0.25 and mine had a HP .40 and tuned pipe on it. A few weeks ago I found out about the Mini Gremlim which is a 400 size electric.

I have built 3 in the past three weeks, two for myself and one for my son. Today I flew one of mine in winds that I do not care to fly any of my other planes in. While waiting for a wind gust to die down a bit before launching my Eagle Tree Air Speed sensor indicated wind at 22 MPH.

My Mini is has a bit warmer than recomended power set up on it. Turning a APC 6X4 E
at just over 16K ,just over 150 watts and working on a 250 watts plus setup at present time.

Here is a link to a video of my son flying his.
