About the build:

This an updated version of the Gatehunter RS5 Frame with slightly wider arms with more motor protection.
The kit now also includes a 4mm brace for the front arms to get even more durability. I have recently release a detailed build guide showing how to assemble the frame and giving some recommendations for component choices.
Go to https://www.gatehunter.com/rs-series to find it. Hope it's useful!

Frame weight breakdown:

  • Steel hardware: 10.5g
  • Arms: 4 x 7.1g
  • Bottom plate: 18.3g
  • Top plates: 2 x 2.5g
  • Canopy: around 16g depending on the version
    --> TOTAL : ~78g

Optional stuff:

  • 4mm carbon brace: 5.75g
  • TPU spacers: 0.5g

PS: Since I get this question a lot, Armattan ships from Taiwan and they take a maximum of two weeks to cut the parts plus a few days for the shipping. You can expect your order to arrive after 3-4 weeks total. This is a bit slow but the quality is amazing and the prices really good. Btw the carbon shown in the pictures is not from Armtattan but cut here locally for my prototypes. Armtattan looks better IMO.

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..
