Build them or buy them, that is the race gate question. Anyone who's been bitten by the micro drone racing bug can attest to the convenience of ripping through a house, turning each and every piece of furniture into a challenging obstacle. The minuscule size of a Tiny Whoop or similar quad transforms even the smallest homes into large explore-able courses with no wind, rain, or extreme temperatures to worry about. At some point, you and your friends will want to invest in some gates to legitimatize your ragtag race team, and the option to build your gates or buy some will come into play.
For those on a "severe" budget, building gates is the way to go. But for the rest of you (including myself) that consider time a legal currency, buying gates that are ready for service upon delivery is a welcome alternative. Enter the RISE House Racer FPV Gate System; for $39.99, you get four different gates and three arrows that make a simple course. All of the gates by RISE can be purchased separately, making this a very expandable system that can grow with your racing team. Let's take a look at what's included with the RISE House Racer FPV Gate System, and check out some of the separate gates that are available.

The FPV Race Gate System comes with two hoops, a corner flag, a checkered gate, and three foam arrows. The base of each gate can be stood up without any support, but collisions with the gate will usually knock it over. To remedy this, RISE includes some 3M adhesive tape. Additionally, holes in the base allow for permanent mounting on walls or floors, or short pieces of included tube can be inserted to stabilize the base.
The checkered flag gate can be assembled at two heights; I prefer the lower setting as it's more challenging.
Cheap gates can be made from almost any material. But in many instances, high-quality manufactured gates are the way to go, especially at club-level racing. The RISE House-Racer FPV Race Gate System is easy to setup, quite modular, and they look great to boot! If you're in the market for an indoor gate system that can grow, I highly recommend looking at the House Racer FPV Race Gate System.Last edited by Matt Gunn; Mar 08, 2017 at 10:40 AM..
