    Femto F3 Short Circuit Hunt

    Hello Everyone, My Femto F3 on my Gremlin seems to have a tiny short. It powers up okay, arms most of the time, and even begins to spin up the motors. If I spike the throttle, however, it goes back to idle and disarms. I put a multimeter on the power leads and got an 11 on the highest Ohms...

    Gremlin doesn't fly with camera

    I build my gremlin a while back and then after I had a hard crash the camera stopped working all together. I've replaced it with a new one but now when I hook the camera up it takes off and flies a few feet and then crashes. It sounds like things might be rebooting. Is the flight controller...

    Multi rotor build videos

    Hey guys, While FT is excellent at making build videos for their foamy's, I do not find any build vid's for the Gremlin/Turbo edition. I bought one of the kits on the fundraiser, but could use some guidance on the build. Also how about a file of the Pid's and settings stuff for beta-flight...

    Gremlin motor issues, please help

    Hi, I just finished my gremlin build and everything went well up until the point that I was ready to maiden. At this point motor 2 stopped arming properly and instead does a twitchy pulse 4 times and then beeps and will not spin. The motor was spinning fine when I was checking motor directions...

    Gremlin + Run Cam Split Micro

    Hi All: I did do a search through the forum but couldn't find a tread on this topic so I apologize if this has been covered before. If it has please just provide a link to the right thread. But I was wondering if all you gremlin wizards have tried a configuration with the run cam split...

    HELP: Gremlin FC issues

    So i recently bought and built my gremlin, but haven't flown it until now because of the cold. Upon first flight, after giving it the smallest amount of throttle, the quad sporadically twitched and yawed. So, i went back and hooked it up to betaflight, took off the props, and went to the...

    Gremlin board will not arm.

    I have just finished completed my gremlin and all the setups. However, when it is connected to my transmitter the light on the board is blinking. Then, when it is armed it blinks twice quickly then pauses and repeats and will not arm. When it was configured the only issue I had was the BLHeli...

    Question about radio protocols, specific Flysky i-bus...

    So I'm pretty new to this hobby. I have built and flown one plane and I want to move into the world of quads too. I am planning on buying a Gremlin kit and building it myself but I have hit a small snag. My radio is a Flysky i-6x. This radio is equipped with PPM or i-bus protocols. The flight...

    Anybody else experience this problem with their Gremlin?

    I'm having an issue where my Gremlin behaves erratically and is impossible to fly. It pitches an banks without any input from the controller. It does this even when sitting on a flat table. This behavior can be seen in Betaflight as well. As I throttle up while connected to the computer...

    Hey guys, I'm having some severe issues with my freshly built gremlin. I did everything that TJ did in the video and in BF it all checks out. But after I disconnect from the computer and plug the battery in and connect to my transmitter and actually arm it the whole thing starts to wobble...

    Gremlin/Frsky R-XSR/QX7 Request for Information

    I'm having an issue with my Gremlin. I can't tell if it's the FC or the Receiver. Would someone who has a working Gremlin with a FRSKY R-XSR/QX7 combination please post their CLI dump from Beta Flight? I’ve got a couple of more things to try but I need a microSD card to flash the receiver first...

    Gremlin Trouble

    For some reason I can't flash anything on to my board. So after trying many times I went on with the build. Later when programming my quad my receiver map would not display my transmitter movement. I am using a DX6e and the same receiver in the vid. I have the correct channel map and the...

    Underpowered Gremlin?

    Hey again guys, more Gremlin problems here. So I just watched the newest FT video, and noticed how much punch the gremlins they were using to race had. Now, mine has no where near that much power. I can hardly get enough altitude to quickly do a flip. Does anyone know why this might be? My...
