TBS SOURCE V (VERTICAL ARM RACING FRAME)
The SOURCE V project is a open source vertical racing frame initiated by Team BlackSheep. 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.
The SOURCE V is a vertical “box” style frame, popular within the racing community for its superior stifness and aerodynamics. It is built to withstand harsh crashes and abuse. It fits and protects all the classic FPV components. The SOURCE V is a solid competitive racing frame.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The SOURCE V project is a collaborative FPV frame project initiated by Team BlackSheep. 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.
