The FREEFLY ALTA 6 UAS Bundle includes the ALTA 6 UAS and Futaba 14SGH 14-Channel 2.4 GHz Computer Radio System.

  • 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

    • 14SGH 14-Channel 2.4 GHz Computer Radio System

      The heli-optimized 14SGH 14-Channel 2.4 GHz Computer Radio System from Futaba is a transmitter (radio controller) that can be programmed to control a multitude of RC aircraft, including fixed-wind planes, helicopters and multi-rotors, and gilders. It can also be used with certain production equipment, such as video stabilizer gimbals, that have compatible receivers. The transmitter features 14-channels and supports receivers with the FASSTest, FASST, and S-FHSS protocols. The "H" in the model number indicates that the throttle gimbal is smooth rather than ratcheted, which is considered the preferred arrangement by many heli fliers.

      The programmable computer is able to store settings for up to 30 models internally, and this memory can be expanded using an SD or SDHC card up to 32GB in capacity. To access the menu to change settings or view data from the aircraft (where supported) there is a 1.8 x 3" back-lit LCD screen. The transmitter is configured for Mode 2. Mode two is the most common in the U.S., however users in other countries may be accustomed to a different Mode. In Mode 2, roll and pitch are controlled with the pilot's right hand while yaw and throttle are controlled with the pilot's left hand.
