FreeBird One

STRUCTURALLY-ENCLOSED PATENT-PENDING CARBON FIBER AIRFRAME (SURROUNDFRAME)

A Unique Design Concept with Significant Practical Benefits

 

Unibody frame construction provides significant strength over other blade protection offerings.

Only commercial UAV with complete blade enclosure.

Provides real protection against in-air collision with objects like trees and structures.

Allows operation in tight spaces.

Protects operators and bystanders from accidental contact.

Enhances overall strength with minimal flexing in the air, but sufficiently flexible to withstand hard landings.

Replacement parts can be snapped in if frame sustains partial damage.

Stress from motor torque and thrust is absorbed throughout the frame with motors attached to the frame through a total of 12 arms.

Motor mounts double as sturdy landing pads (with built-in bright navigation lights underneath) that can be extended to provide ground clearance for larger payloads.

Entire SurroundFrame (including motor mounts) weighs only 3 pounds despite its size (3 ft. diameter) and strength.

Our proprietary manufacturing process makes this unique design possible without sacrificing flight time and performance.

 
 
 

FLY FARTHER AWAY WITH FREEBIRD ONE

FreeBird One's large footprint, measuring 3 feet/1 meter in diameter, bright bottom-mounted red and green navigation lights, and dark contrasting black exterior with large flat reflective surfaces enable it to be seen at much greater distances than most other drones like the DJI Phantom, Inspire or Matrice.


With normal vision, the human eye can distinguish points separated by about 1 minute of arc. For a UAV operator, this means FreeBird One's 3-foot diameter airframe can be distinguished up to about 1.5 miles away. In contrast, reliable visual line-of-sight for the DJI Phantom 4, with a frame size 1/3rd as large, extends only about 1/2 mile.

For operators with line of sight flight requirements like in the U.S., this means you can fly FreeBird One at greater distances from your position than competing models.

 

FREEBIRD ONE IS THE SAFEST HEAVY-LIFT UAV ON THE MARKET

Safety features are often under-rated in the early days of a new technology where focus is on new features and functionality. We expect enclosed frames will eventually become industry-standard, if not required, for commercial use.
