Testing

Each and every ALTA endures a barrage of component and system level tests designed to weed out items that do not meet our strict quality control levels. After passing this gauntlet of tests, each ALTA is test flown by a Freefly test pilot to ensure each ALTA flies as well as our personal machines.

We All Fly

The team at Freefly is captivated by flying machines, and we constantly wonder "How would this look from above?". We love the early mornings, we love the late nights tinkering with new cameras, we love showing the world in a new way.

Automatic Data Logging

ALTA 8 makes it easy to monitor and analyze the performance and 'health' of your machine using our proprietary high speed data logging via micro SD card. This flight log gives pilots access to a wide range of helpful data. Additionally Freefly publishes the flight data viewer application that our Engineering team uses to analyze flight data to help give customers actionable insight to their machine.

Quick Release

We hear from customers each and every day that our Toad in the Hole quick release system has dramatically improved their speed and flexibility on set. We decided early that the ALTA would utilize the TITH quick release on both the top and bottom of the drone, allowing unparalleled speed, flexibility, and creativity.

Unprecedented Support

Freefly provides a professional level of communication and support for ALTA pilots in the field. In addition to our active Freefly Forum, we have dedicated pilots on the technical support team to help ensure your success. Freefly also issues service bulletins to pilots as we discover bugs, issues, or simply ways that we can help you be more successful.

Vibration Isolation

Freefly pioneered the adjustable o-ring isolation design on the CineStar, and we've improved it further for the ALTA by upgrading the design to be tool less and quick release.

Weather Resistant

The ALTA features a lightweight molded plastic enclosure to cover the flight control and power distribution board to protect them from the elements.

Receiver Mounting Bay

The ALTA 8 provides two fully enclosed receiver mounting bays to keep these sensitive components protected and dry.

Flight Time

Efficient 18-inch props, optimized propulsion system, and lightweight carbon fiber frame all add up to exceptional flight times while carrying impressive payloads.
