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.

Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
