This highly visible FPV Racing Air Gate from Gemfan is the ultimate tool for cool racing and provides an interesting obstacle to fly through and is the perfect companion to the Gemfan air gate. They are very affordable, quick and easy to set up and a great challenge to any FPV track.
The gate is made of a strong polyester fabric printed with the Gemfan logo and is robust enough for outside use. The supporting pole is made of fiberglass with steel joining ferrules similar to those used in dome tents. The poles are also fitted with an internal elastic band which allows the poles to be plugged and unplugged quickly for quick and easy setup/take down.
The gates are designed to have a width of 270cm and a height of 150cm high (inside of the fabric) but of course this can be adjusted to suit your particular course. Each gate comes with pegs and guy ropes and an adjustable cross strap which guarantees a wind and crash resistant mounting. The gate is also supplied with a strong lightweight carry case with the Gemfan logo for easy storage and transportation.

Took quite some time to hunt around for great gates for a decent price - and these are definitely it! Supplied inside a slip-bag, which then goes inside an outer carry bag; well protected, and easy to put up (and take down) in just a few minutes. Quite large! Closer to the MultiGP standard than most others which is nice (a bit wider by about 70cm-ish); easily adjustable to vary the ratio of height/width. I've used some gates recently which were quite a bit smaller, and whilst the challenge is nice sometimes, it's a pain to have to keep walking out ;DAbsorbed a lot of crashes just showing first signs of wear and tear.I will get more once restocked in eu.A fellow flyer recommended these air gates, I spotted them here at HK for a cracking price so decided to retire my pool noodle air gate.
It's bigger than I imagined - easy to get through
The assembly is straightforward (no manual) - although there was some headscratching, it was up in 10 minutes.
Once assembled and anchored it's extremely sturdy in wind.
Visibility through my Fatsharks is excellent.

Great gates love it...Great racing gates for FPV mini quad racing. They are very easy to set up, but I rated it 4 stars because the lack of quality in the carrying cases. The zipper snapped off but I was able to reinstall it. Also, the zipper came undone at certain points, but that was an easy fix.I bought 3 of these.
The ground pegs(Pins) actually do secure the gates really well, don't need to pound them with a mallot.
They are lightweight and compact to transport around.
Unfortunately 1 of my set was missing a set of 6 ground pegs. :(
So 4 stars for that.
Otherwise it works great, good quality materials and is great value for money!
Air Gating with theses increases excitement and fun.
You can't beat these. They look great... go up fast... and have some adjustability in height. I I highly recommend these... much easier then going out and getting parts to build a gate and these will look better.I wanted a small portable gate to throw up and practice for upcoming races. This gate is the perfect size, lightweight, and from one use worked out well from assembly to racing to breakdown. I am very likely going to buy an additional Gemfan gate given the quality, ease of use, and value.
The the reason for the sub par rating is the carry bag. I bought this with the idea of having a nice ***portable*** gate to take out. The carry bag fell apart the first day. the zipper popped off of one side. I reattached it and after zipping the zipper seam split. Then as I was working to realign it, the zipper tab pulled off. It's one of those manufacturing decisions that a literal $.10-$.25 would have made the product exponentially better.
Overall I'd recommend the gate, but I'm buying it knowing that I'll need a separate bag to carry it in as the one provided is defective.Good product for the price the material could be more durable (we all hit them often..very often!!)Great Gate once you figger out ware to connect the ropes. Could do with small instructions for the first time buyer
