Craft Description

The “Gatesman” is a 5” true x bottom mount frame weighing in at 68g dry (w/out hardware) and 90g with hardware. It sports a Z-style configuration, where the arms are mounted below the bottom plate and the back arms are mounted atop the bottom plate. All the arms are modular and are designed to be used independently of one another. For instance, the arm for motor 1 can be used for motor 3, vice versa.

The arms were designed with built-in motor knuckles and a Y-style connection system to join the arms. This design applies lateral forces of impacts to the arm bolts and the faying surfaces of both arms instead of one to provide extra rigidity in a crash. Additionally, there are two separate 1.5mm carbon fiber plates to sandwich the arms and bottom plate together.
