MANY WAYS TO ATTACH THE EQUIPMENT YOU NEED TO GET AIRBORNE

19 attachment points with heavy-duty threading located on the sides and center of FreeBird One give you ultimate flexibility to mount equipment wherever you want.

IF THAT'S NOT ENOUGH, THERE ARE EVEN MORE MOUNTING OPTIONS!

For lighter attachments, or while determining ideal mounting locations temporarily, large, flat, smooth vertical and horizontal surface areas above, below and on the sides can be used with adhesive-based mounts like Velcro or tape to secure equipment.

Clips are another convenient option to attach equipment to the side edges.

For heavier payloads, center the weight to maximize flight time and handling by attaching our universal payload interface that secures to the bottom of the frame in 4 places.

Ideal for mounting large camera equipment that needs a 360-degree unobstructed view below FreeBird One.

PROTECTIVE COVERS ARE EASILY REMOVED TO GET ACCESS TO YOUR ELECTRONICS IN LARGE STORAGE BAYS AND FLIGHT ELECTRONICS IN THE CENTER.

When secured, the covers will keep all electronic components dry in rain or snow.

If weather conditions permit, leave the covers behind to reduce weight and increase flight time if you choose.

REAL-TIME, ON-DEMAND CUSTOMIZATION

If the standard mounting options don't get the job done, we can customize components on a real-time production basis because of our unique and revolutionary proprietary carbon fiber 3D printing process.

This is a one-of-a-kind capability among commercial UAV manufacturers, let alone among manufacturers of any other kind of product.

Endless Flexibility: Headliner

WE HAVE PERFECTED THE PROCESS FOR 3D PRINTING CARBON FIBER.

FREEBIRD ONE DERIVES ITS SUPERIOR STRENGTH-WEIGHT CHARACTERISTICS FROM OUR MANUFACTURING PROCESS THAT IS ABLE TO PRODUCE A FRAME LARGER AND STRONGER THAN COMPETING BRANDS AND TRADITIONAL MANUFACTURING PROCESSES WHILE STILL YIELDING FLIGHT TIMES IN THE 99TH PERCENTILE OF ITS CLASS.

Endless Flexibility: Headliner

WE PRODUCE FREEBIRD ONE UNITS ON OUR OWN "PRINTER FARM" IN REAL-TIME IN THE U.S. TO MEET CUSTOMER DEMAND WITH A DELIVERY GOAL OF 1-3 DAYS DEPENDING ON PRINTER UTILIZATION RATES.

Endless Flexibility: Headliner

WE UNIQUELY OFFER ON-DEMAND CUSTOMIZATION.

Our design engineers can modify the base FreeBird One CAD model in real-time to meet special customer requirements such as a built-in interface for a specific type of payload or even simply develop an adapter to facilitate mounting specific equipment onto the standard FreeBird One mounting locations.

Modifications can be made just prior to sending the model to the printers for production and then assembled and shipped in nearly the same timeframe as a standard model (depending on the complexities of the modifications).

Since FreeBird One is modular, we can customize a specific part of set or parts at a later time as well if the need arises after the unit has been put into service. Modified parts can easily be shipped to and replaced by the customer, or units can be shipped back to FreeBird Flight for the modifications.

Endless Flexibility: Headliner

OUR PROPRIETARY PROCESS FURTHER BENEFITS CUSTOMERS BY ELIMINATING THE FRUSTRATING EXPERIENCE OF "OUT-OF-STOCK" REPLACEMENT PARTS.

Our inventory consists of spools of carbon fiber filament that we can turn into a production or replacement part on demand at any time for immediate shipment.

Nearly all parts can be produced in 3 hours or less.

Endless Flexibility: Headliner

In just a few short hours, the CAD model (below) including any modifications requested by the customer, turns into the actual flying aircraft (also below) during our post-assembly flight test that we perform prior to shipping each unit.
