Astro Mapping Package will start shipping this month, February 2022!

We are about to start building Astro by hand in our Woodinville HQ and will be producing these in batches of 15 units. Early reservation holders have been emailed a link to make a deposit that will secure their Astro Map for one of the production batches shown on this page. As we continue to build, we will be reaching out to additional reservation holders to purchase from our production batches. Thanks to everyone for your patience and support as we continue refining Astro. We take building the world’s toughest drones seriously, and sometimes it takes a bit of extra time to pull that off!

Astro Map includes everything in Astro Base plus the Mapping Payload (Sony Alpha 7R 4 on a Freefly gimbal with a 24 mm lens) and the Smart Dovetail Isolation Upgrade. If you already have the Astro Base, the Mapping Payload is available separately.

Astro Map is PPK capable with a variety of base stations, including Trimble and Emlid. We’ve developed a free PPK app with Auterion for an even smoother workflow. Astro is also RTK capable with the Freefly RTK GPS Ground Station.

We’ve partnered closely with the ESRI SiteScan team during the development and testing of Astro Map and we are excited to show you this powerful workflow. Astro produces data that can be easily used by any standard platform- Great results are easy to get with Pix4D, Drone Deploy, and Trimble Business Center. Sample data is linked above and we’ll publish how-to guides at shipping time!

For inspection or photography, you’ll be pleased to know that the camera is unmodified and you have full control from the Herelink handset (auto focus, auto exposure, manual shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, JPG and RAW output). Compatible 35 mm and 50 mm lenses will be recommended.

The Astro Map Wiki will be published in the Freefly Wiki before units start shipping. In the meantime, please write to with any questions! We are excited for you to put Astro to work.
