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.

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..
