Drone pilots that need to fly during harsh weather conditions or land in harsh environments such as snow or ice may be interested in a new weatherproof drone that has been created by Roger Freeman called the FreeBird Flight.
The FreeBird Flight has been specifically designed to provide a new standard UAV Airframe Design and System Integration and uses SurroundFrame Technology together with other technologies to provide leading flight performance.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about its construction and whether proofing systems which make the drone more rugged than many other designs currently on the market.
With regulatory scrutiny starting to intensify, we thought there had to be a way to design a UAV that could be a lot safer, useful for a wide range of applications in all types of weather conditions, affordable, — and all of this without sacrificing flight time. We also wanted to develop a product that would be FAA-friendly with spare capacity to carry necessary communications equipment be integrated into the National Air Space (NAS) as technologies became available. After 2 years of hard work, we’ve accomplished much of our objectives with 2 products:
– SurroundFrame: An airframe that introduces a new level of safety, strength and flexibility not seen before. The SurroundFrame eclipses the durability and performance of today’s tubular flywheel design standard, while adding safety as a critical feature. What sets the Freebird One apart from the rest of the UAV market (visually and functionally) is our proprietary 3-foot diameter patent-pending 3D-printed carbon fiber SurroundFrame.
– FreeBird One: Our SurroundFrame with high-quality, optimized components that delivers the safest, strongest, fastest, longest flying, most weather-resistant and most customizable UAV in a single system. FreeBird One is the safest, strongest, fastest, longest flying, most weather-resistant and most-customizable UAV in a single system. In fact, we prefer to call it an Aerial Utility Vehicle (AUV), because we think that more accurately describes FreeBird One and its purpose.
