Smart Dovetail Sneak Peek

Smart Dovetail is Astro’s payload quick release, Freefly’s implementation of the Pixhawk Payload Bus. We’re making a dev kit so it’ll be quick and easy to get your payload flying on Astro. Here’s a sneak peek.

Payload manufacturers: Smart Dovetail is a way to control your destiny. Prototype with the dev kit, then use the open spec to build Smart Dovetail into your payload. It’ll install quick and easy, and fly like a dream, on Astro and any other vehicle that implements the standard.
