Gatehunter 6S

Frame: This is my latest build of my open source Gatehunter RS5 frame featuring the new flip stick canopy. This simple 5mm polyamide (nylon) stick is pressed into the TPU and does a significantly better job than any turtle fin ever could. Plus it's a lot lighter!

Stack: I hesitated to use the super cheap Mamba F405 stack with pretty amp hungry 2207 1888kV motors on 6S but it holds up great so far!'

Motors: The new lineup of RacerStar motors really has noting to do with the junk they used to sell. The SIC 2207 1888kV have a great performance, quality and stunning looks. Build quality seems great: Titanium shaft, curved magnets, super clean single strand windings and the special anodizing only iFlight had until now.
The only issue is the shape of the bell where the edges clash with the T-Motor 5150 props I usually use. But on all other props I tried it was fine. Also I can't telly much about durability yet but they seem solid.

Camera: The RunCam Phoenix Oscar edition really has a great image quality (certainly among the best with the Micro Eagle) but overall I still prefer the Ratel with the 1.66mm lens.

VTX: I'm starting to use the tiny Eachine Nano 400mW VTX on most 5" racing builds because why not? Saves a bit of weight and the one I tested with an RF meter really did true 400mW.

How do I get a frame like this?

Send the dxf files in my Thingiverse post to any CNC-Service and they will cut it for you . I have linked a few in the post :-)

Nice Build 👍.. I'm getting ready to build the 3" version of it but just need to get the canopy. Sucks not having a 3D printer but in due time.

How do you keep the vtx and rx from floping around? Do you think a Tank Rush would fit in the stack? Love the frame btw!

They are so light its no issue if the float around!
No the stack should stay really low since the TPU canopy can be pushed down on very hard impacts.
Thanks!

Oh snap! I'm gonna try out that VTX. Sweet race build Dave... I'm putting one (GH) on my build list.

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..
