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.

A couple years ago I built the TransTEC Frog and since then I've been patiently waiting for another TransTEC frame to catch my eye. Fast forward to today and the TransTEC Laser S is that frame. It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit.
