Aqui está uma possível forma de como construir uns gates para micro drones para fazer corridas indoor (ou outdoor).

É possível tornar os gates maiores ou mais pequenos, cortando maior ou mais pequeno. O que fiz tem 50cm por 50cm.

Material necessário (para um gate):

  • 2 perfis de alumínio 11mmx1mm (diametro x espessura). Estes perfis que tenho têm 1m de comprimento
  • 2x base (com ou sem pesos)
  • 2x conector de 90 graus
  • 2x noodles de natação (opcional, para proteção do drone caso bata no gate)

Base com pesos

Caso optem pela base com pesos, os pesos não são nada mais que chumbos de pesca que podem encontrar na decathlon ( e talvez numa loja de pesca). São pesos de 60g cada um e vem em embalagens de 3

Não têm que ser obrigatóriamente estes pesos - podem comprar mais pequenos e encher os buracos com eles - usando cola quente ou outra cola qualquer


Here's a possible way on how to build a race gate for indoor (or outdoor) micro quad (or not so micro).

You can build them bigger or smaller - all depends on the length of the profiles
Mine here has 50cm by 50cm.

Materials (for one gate)

  • 2 aluminium profiles 11mmx1mm (diameter x thickness). These profiles I bought are 1m in length
  • 2x bases (with or without weights)
  • 2x 90 degrees connector
  • 2x pool noodles (optional, for extra protection if a quad hits the gate)

Base with heights

If you choose this option, the weights are simple fishing sinkers that you can find in any fishing store. These ones are hexagons with 60gr each. You can use others, smaller ones, and just glue them in to the holes

Doesn't Matter









Só precisam de suportes, se desejarem, para os conectores de 90 graus


You only need, if you want, supports for the 90 degrees connector.


Instruções / Instructions


Cortar os perfis de aluminio com a dimensão desejada e encaixar tudo.

Podem colar os pesos à base se for mais simples para transportar.

Cut the aluminium profiles with the desire dimensions and fit it all together

If necessary (for easier transportation), just glue the weights to the bases
