The Gatehunter RS5 is a purebred racer and comes in at reasonably light 76 grams including all hardware and canopy.
I put this final version through a lot of abuse during racing practice and haven't broken a single arm yet.
The single (now 5mm thick) bottom plate is the heart of the desing. It keeps the profile super low while still leaving enough space
to comfortably mount two 30x30 boards. The canopy has a flat underside designed to stick a TBS unify on it with some double sided tape.
Speaking of the canopy; This is the Thingiverse link to both the Lollipop and SMA version.

Carbon parts are available on Armattan Productions: https://armattanproductions.com/pages/kit_detail/2165
Stay tuned, the 6" Version as well as a 7" long range conversion with GoPro mount will follow soon!
Hope you guys enjoy it!

Key Specs:

  • 5.1" Props with good prop separation (slightly increased gap between the props. I used to fly 5" props on )
  • Strech X
  • 30x30 Stack mount only (Listen to Kabab, don't use 20x20 ESCs on 5" ;-) )
  • 76g total weight including hardware and TPU canopy (I recommend sainsmart TPU, great stuff!)
  • 5mm single arms (I decided not to use boomerang arms. The single arms hold up extremley well and a boomerang configuration is much much more expensive)
  • 16x16 motor hole pattern for 22xx & 23xx motors with 4 screws (using only 2 or 3 is rediculous imo)
  • Lollipop / Axii or SMA antanna mount
  • 19mm camera mount ( Fits even the bigger Runcam Micro Eagle)

PS: Still pretty impressed by how well the cheap components perform and how durable they are!!
And I haven't even tuned it yet to be honest. Just adjusted the rates to my ususal ones ans it flies absoluteley amazing.
I'll definitelty continue to use this setup for practice.
For the upcoming Aircrasher races this summer I will use a more hig end 6S setup tho...

sexy! are 2306-2400kv going to be overkill on this with 4s?

Dave_C FPV   Mar 03, 2019 

Thanks! It think 2306 2400kv could be pretty perfect

Nice build. What's the AUW without battery?

It's 280 grams. Shouldn't be too hard to go down to 260g. I feel like the 2207 2600kV are kind of overkill for most tracks.
Probably I will go for 2206 on 1800kV on 6S. That already saves like 15-20 grams ...

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
