SYNAPSE

The Freefly SYNAPSE combines high quality calibrated sensors with proprietary control algorithms to allow users to execute complex flight patterns with ease.

  • Integrated on-screen display
  • High-bandwidth position control
  • Vertical and ground velocity speed limits
  • Live graphing
  • Dual receivers
  • Tested for years by industry's best pilots

Silent Drive

The ALTA utilizes sinusoidal drive motor controls with proprietary control algorithms developed by the Freefly engineering team. The motor drives are custom tuned to match the F45 and are optimized for speed, reliability, and robustness. The motor drives are constantly monitoring a variety of parameters and reporting status to the SYNAPSE.

  • Motor temp
  • Motor current
  • Motor RPM
  • Motor power
  • Motor vibration

Height Hold

The SYNAPSE flight controller takes readings from accelerometers, barometer, and GPS and fuses them together to create high-bandwidth height control flight mode.

What this means for filmmakers is you now have a dolly in the sky.

Velocity Clamps

The SYNAPSE features velocity control with an adjustable real time speed limit. This means pilots can alter the vertical and ground velocities to ensure precise and repeatable camera moves.
