Take to the skies with the FREEFLY ALTA 6 Aerial Imaging Kit from B&H. This kit is comprised of the ALTA 6 hexa-rotor drone, the MoVI M15 three-axis gimbal stabilizer, and Aero Landing Gear, and it forms the foundation of your professional aerial imaging system. The gimbal supports camera systems up to 15 lb, serving to provide stabilization while allowing independent movement. The Aero Landing Gear enables mounting the gimbal beneath the aircraft. The gimbal can also be mounted above for unique, sky-facing angles.

  • FREEFLY ALTA 6 UAS for Aerial Cinematography

    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


    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

      Additional Features

      User-Definable LEDs
      Customize your ALTA's LED color scheme to suit your piloting preferences via the ALTA App

    • FREEFLY Aero Landing Gear

      Fly your MoVI motorized gimbal stabilizer beneath your ALTA with the FREEFLY Aero Landing Gear. Using the included parts, the landing gear secures to the MoVI's pan axis, preventing the possibility of the landing gear blocking your camera's field-of-view. All parts necessary for assembly and mounting are included.

    • FREEFLY MOVI M15 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer

      The MOVI M15 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer from Freefly is a camera stabilization system that uses three motors and an IMU (inertial measurement unit) to detect and counteract unwanted movement along three axes: pan, tilt, and roll. In particular, it works to compensate for handshake or vehicle-induced vibration as well as reduce translation.

      The M15 supports payloads up to 15 pounds, making it suitable for professional cinema cameras with lenses, as well as smaller camcorders and DSLRs. There is a quick-release adapter available separately so that it can be mounted on cranes, jibs, vehicles mounts, and other camera support equipment. The M15 is also Wi-Fi enabled, allowing for simple, wireless pairing with iOS, Android, and Windows apps.

      The system supports single- or dual-operator control. In single user (Majestic) mode, the system's software intelligently differentiates unwanted shake or vibration from intentional movement, such as panning, while keeping the horizon level. Alternatively, you can have a dedicated operator (Stabilized Slew mode) with a remote control or RC transmitter who is in charge of camera pan, tilt--and if you want--roll. In this configuration, the camera will always point where the operator of the remote tells it to, independent of how the rig operator moves.

      As with sled-style stabilizers, the camera should be balanced on the MOVI to ensure best performance. Once balanced, the MOVI pairs over Wi-Fi to an iOS, Android, or Windows app to finalize the configuration process.

      Two lithium-polymer (LiPo) batteries and a charger are included, as well as a quick-release top handle for low-angle shooting or transporting the assembled rig on set.

      Supported Cameras
      The MOVI M15 is designed to support payloads up to 15 pounds, making it suitable for professional cinema cameras with cinema lenses, as well as smaller DSLR cameras. Cameras that have been tested on the system include the ARRI Alexa M, Sony F5/F55, RED Epic/Scarlet, Canon C500/C300/C100, Sony FS700 (with limited choice of lenses), and the Blackmagic Cinema Camera / Production Camera 4K.
      Lightweight Construction
      Because the weight of your camera setup and the M15 is supported by your arms, the M15 is built to be as light as possible to keep while maintaining structural rigidity and robustness.
      Remote Operation
      The MOVI can be operated remotely either with a dedicated controller or using an RC aircraft transmitter (hand-held radio controller). It supports Spektrum DSMX and Futaba SBUS transmitters with at least six channels, including the Spektrum DX7s. Wireless range will vary depending on the transmitter used.
      Three Control Modes
      • Majestic Mode: For single-operator use. In this mode the gimbal provides stabilization without counteracting operator-directed camera movements--the camera goes where you point the handles. This mode is ideal for accurate framing in tight situations
      • Stabilized Mode: Assumes no operator input, compensating for all movement it detects. Ideal scenarios for this mode include when the gimbal is mounted to a car or shots where the camera is moving but the camera angle remains fixed
      • Slew Stabilized Mode: For dual-operator control. In this mode an operator with a dedicated remote or RC transmitter controls pan, tilt, and roll independently of the gimbal handler's movements.
      Drift Free Horizon
      The gimbal uses a GPS-assisted IMU that when used outdoors with available satellite signals is able to minimize drift even when under acceleration--such as where the camera is mounted on a UAV or vehicle.
      Freefly Configurator
      The Freefly Configurator is a GUI that gives you control of your MOVI via an iOS, Android, or Windows device over Wi-Fi pairing. n
      Silent Drive
      The motors driving the gimbal have been designed to operate as quietly as possible to ensure you will be able to record sound without picking up any unwanted noise.
      Translation Compensation
      Making hundreds of adjustments per second, the software works to counteract translation--the bobbing up and down effect while running--when tracking a moving subject moving at high speed. In this situation, translation may be unavoidable, but at least the subject will remain in-frame.
      Shot Recorder
      Keeps a record of the camera position (where GPS is available), height, camera pan, tilt, and roll so that the shot can be recreated later or to help Visual Effects align the live action shot with other elements in a CG composite.
      Third-Party Mounting
      Using separately available mounting hardware it is possible to mount the MOVI on cranes, jibs, Steadicams and similar vest-supported stabilizers (where it corrects for angular error), and other camera support hardware. It has also been verified to work on an Easyrig.
      Remote Firmware Updatable
      You can upgrade the gimbal to new software features as they are released by Freefly yourself, without having to send the device in for a factory update.
      Custom Direct Drive Motors
      The MOVI system uses motors that were custom made for the gimbal rather than re-purposing off-the-shelf parts.
      User Adjustable "Shakey Cam"
      Want an organic hand-held look? The MOVI provides variable noise filters that allow you to effectively dial in a custom amount of shake to help you achieve the effect you are after.
      Additional Features
      • Custom designed, precisely calibrated sensors
      • Fully tool-less balancing
      • Second battery cage of holding a battery dedicated to powering accessories
      • Handles can be switch from low to high modes with flip of a lever
