Ready to fly. Ready to Film.
We pilot Freefly System's latest aerial cinematography gear, the Alta. We only fly the best for our clients.
The ALTA transforms from the world's most capable drone, to the most portable, in minutes thanks to its folding props, folding swan neck booms, and Toad in the Hole quick release system. This allows us to have minimal setup times while on set.
Freefly's flight controller is where it's all at. The Freefly SYNAPSE combines high quality calibrated sensors with proprietary control algorithms to allow users to execute complex flight patterns with ease. This gives us the peace of mind when flying heavy cinematic cameras. By using the latest in GPS technology and fusing that data with Freefly's IMU and Barometer, the ALTA is able to hold position even in difficult weather conditions. This gives us the ability to execute complex flight paths with precision.
