We are currently selling the V0.2 (latest) version of the frame that is cut by Unmanned Tech. Rather than using standard carbon fibre, we have made this frame slightly stronger by using inner unidirectional layers along the length of the arms to add extra rigidity and strength in a crash.
The SOURCE ONE is a wide-stance X configuration frame, popular for freestyle or free-range acrobatic flying. It is built to withstand harsh crashes and abuse. It fits and protects all the classic FPV components and is optimized for light weight. The SOURCE ONE is a perfect everyday workhorse for casual FPV flying and competitive freestyle.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The SOURCE ONE project is a first of its kind collaborative FPV frame project initiated by Team BlackSheep (TBS). The frame is donated to the community to empower creators and makers, and integrate best practices and current trends faster into a continuously manufactured product. In return, it allows the local distribution network to have cheap and direct access to a good frame in order to allow them compete in an increasingly predatory marketplace.
The hope is for this frame to enable broad access to FPV thanks to a low price point, great documentation and wide availability of compatible parts and accessories, without violating other people’s intellectual property.
