ALTA 6 from Freefly is a hexa-rotor drone for aerial imaging that – when used in conjunction with a separately available MoVI gimbal – supports mounting the camera either below or above the airframe. This configuration flexibility makes shooting from virtually any angle possible, even with the camera pointed up. ALTA features a maximum payload of 15 lb, and is therefore suitable for DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and even compact cinema cameras (depending on lens weight and other variables). Equipped with Freefly's own flight control system, ALTA works with a range of transmitters, including many Futaba, Spektrum, and radios (see specifications for specific requirements). Flight modes provided include Manual, Height Hold, Climb Rate Control (Vario), Position Hold, Ground Speed Control, Return-To-Home, and Auto-land. For monitoring and first-person view, the flight controller works with FPV systems from Skyzone, BOSCAM, Immersion RC, and Fatshark. OSD display is user-configurable, and telemetry can data can also be displayed on compatible Futaba transmitters.

The ALTA includes a hard transit case. Additional item essential to get started include flight batteries and a charger, a transmitter (radio controller), and of course a MoVI gimbal and camera.

Fast Setup and Breakdown
The Freefly ALTA features a robust standard hard case that the aircraft folds up in and a packs away. Before each flight, simply unfold the prop arms and in insert the battery (available separately) – the props themselves unfold automatically as they spin up. No pre-flight assembly requiring tools is needed

Performance

Up to 15 lb Payload Capacity
Designed for today's growing crop of compact cinema cameras, the ALTA is suitable for models such as the RED Dragon, Sony F55, and ALEXA Mini. It also supports popular mirrorless and DSLR cameras widely used in video production or to take stills from the air

Synapse Intelligent Flight Control System

The Freefly Synapse flight control system combines gyros and other sensors with proprietary control algorithms to allow users to execute complex flight patterns with ease. It features an integrated on-screen display, high-bandwidth position control, live , and has been tested for years by the industry's best pilots
    Data Logging
    High speed data logging allows user analysis of critical flight data

    Works with MoVI Gimbals

    Top Mount Camera Option
    In addition to traditional bottom mounting, the ALTA supports mounting the gimbal on top of the aircraft. This enables capturing distinct camera angles from beneath an elevated subject
    Toad in the Hole Quick Release
    MoVI gimbals can be easily attached or removed using Freefly's Toad in the Hole mounting standard

    Air System Design

    Vibration Isolation System
    A refined vibration isolation system rejects high frequency disturbances adding further image stability on top of what the gimbal provides
    Lightweight Frame
    The frame has been engineered to provide the optimal strength-to-weight ratio, enabling its up to 15 lb payload capacity
    Weather-Resistant Electronics
    The internal distribution board is weather sealed and conformal coated. It features four 12V power leads for driving LEDs or other accessories, as well as integrated connections for FPV monitoring systems
    Silent Drive Technology
    Using sine wave drive motor controls with active braking, the ALTA features low noise and precise, efficient, closed loop control of the propeller
