- R/C Combat Gremlin kits:
The R/C Combat Gremlin was developed in New England by Eric
Henderson and has been flown by several local
clubs since early 1991 and spread across the country to start the streamer combat revolution.
It was flown as a demo event at the 1992 NATS in Chicopee MA. It was featured in the
February 1994 R/C Report as a kit review as well as the original December 1992 R/C Modeler magazine
construction article. We have been supplying foam cores and kits under agreement with Mr.
Henderson since the original 1992 construction article. We have expanded the Gremlin family recently with
two electric offerings, the 30" Speed 400 sized Mini R/C Combat Gremlin
as well as our newest plane, the full 48" sized R/C Combat GremTwin.
Both of these new versions share the great handling and stability of the original design. We
market multiple levels of kits and replacement parts. Each plane is available as a full kit with all
the wood parts precut (lasercutting for the Twin and Mini) as well as an Almost Ready-to-Cover version
which does the majority of the building for you with a prebuilt wing and fuselage(s). For our original
Gremlin we also offer a short kit which includes cores and PVC Fuselage but just patterns for the

- The Gremlin is used in single design R/C streamer
combat contests around the country but is a fun, durable plane to fly and has become a standard
"hot dogging" plane at many New England flying fields. If you can handle
an aileron trainer, you can fly the Gremlin. Fun, low cost, durability,
and short (about 6-10 hours) building time make this plane a winner. For
