Sony Airpeak S1 Professional Drone
For Sony Alpha owners looking to take the leap into aerial filmmaking, the lightweight Sony Airpeak S1 Professional Drone is an ideal choice, as it allows you to utilize your existing Alpha camera and library of lenses, and it keeps you within the Sony digital ecosystem. Simply add a compatible S1 gimbal (not included), and you're ready to fly. Powerful motors deliver impressive speed and wind resistance, while a comprehensive vision sensing system and convenient return-to-home feature help ensure that the Airpeak S1 will capture stunning professional-quality content, flight after flight.
Power and Performance
Quad 17" propellers and high-powered brushless motors allow the Airpeak S1 to achieve speeds up to 55.9 mph (without payload) and an acceleration of 0 to 50 mph in just 3.5 seconds. This allows for fast-motion filming and supplies the power to handle adverse weather conditions. The S1 can withstand wind speeds of up to 44.7 mph.
Flight Planning
Pilots can select preset modes to vary the responsiveness of the Airpeak S1:

  • Standard Mode: Ensures all sensors and obstacle detection are on
  • Velocity Mode: Reduces effects of wind on hovering, turning, and maneuvering
  • On Course Function: Pilots can accomplish accurate recreations of circular flight paths
  • All Modes: You can customize maximum speed, angles, acceleration rates, and other parameters

In addition, the Airpeak Base web-based app can be used for overall drone project management, planning, and flight log storage. With Mission Flight mode, automated flight plans can be created and executed via the Airpeak Flight app. Speed, position, timeline, and gimbal direction are just some aspects you can control. For multiple takes, use Repeat Flight mode to re-run old flight paths.

Remote Control with Airpeak Flight
For overall in-flight management of the S1, you can use the Airpeak Flight app for iOS/iPadOS 14 or higher. In addition to a HUD featuring essential telemetry, such as distance, speed, and battery usage, the app can run the custom automated flight plans you create in Airpeak Base. During each flight, even automated flights, you can make real-time adjustments to the gimbal and camera if needed. The entire time, a live feed is viewable via the S1's nose-mounted FPV camera.
Supporting Airpeak Flight-equipped iPhones or iPads up to 7" in size, the included remote controller completes the piloting experience. Fly the S1 using its twin Futaba-designed control sticks, along with four built-in buttons that can be customized to control specific functions. If you're with a team onsite, use the integrated HDMI port to output drone footage to an (optional) external monitor.
Vision Sensing and Return Home
Using five stereo cameras (front, back, left, right, and bottom), along with two IR range sensors and other internal electronics, the Airpeak S1 can accurately and automatically avoid nearby obstacles where GNSS reception is not available. If needed, pilots can always initiate immediate braking manually. The vision sensing system also has the added ability of reducing camera shake during low-level flying.
The vision sensing system is also utilized if the Return to Home (RTH) feature is triggered. If the battery is low or the remote signal is lost, the Airpeak S1 will fly back to its starting point automatically. Along the way, the S1 will intelligently calculate different routes when the vision sensing system detects obstacles in its path. As with manual braking, pilots can manually trigger the RTH feature in an emergency or just retrieve the drone without additional piloting.
Self-Diagnostics
Before it even starts its motor, the Airpeak S1 will automatically run a full system check and alert you to any possible issues. If the issues are too severe, it will even prevent takeoff without addressing the issue(s). As with other features, you can manually trigger this diagnostic in flight, and if issues arise, you can make an emergency landing.
Additional Features
  • Supports 345° panning with retractable landing gear (gimbal not included)
  • Up to 22 minutes of flight time without payload (approximately 12 minutes with payload)
  • Save time with a hot-swappable battery that lets you change packs without powering down
  • Detachable propellers with a quick release mechanism
  • Supports Airpeak Plus (paid subscription required) to open up full Airpeak Base functionality, including AirMap and Geofencing
  • Supports Airpeak Protect Plan (additional charges apply) to replace drones in the event of accidental damage or malfunction
Camera and Lens Compatibility
The Airpeak S1 is compatible with the following cameras and lenses:

  • Cameras: ILCE-7M4, ILCE-1, ILME-FX3, ILCE-7C, ILCE-9M2, ILCE-7SM3, ILCE-7RM4, ILCE-7RM3, ILCE-7M3, and ILCE-9
  • Lenses: SEL14F18GM, SEL20F18G, SEL24F14GM, SEL24F28G, SEL28F20, SEL35F28Z, SEL35F18F, SEL40F25G, SEL50F25G, SEL50F18F, SEL50M28, SEL55F18Z, and SEL85F18

Sony 128GB SF-G TOUGH Series UHS-II SDXC Memory Card

The 128GB SF-G TOUGH Series UHS-II SDXC Memory Card from Sony features a storage capacity of 128GB and takes advantage of the UHS-II bus to support advanced DSLR functions such as continuous shutter bursts and rapid shooting, as well as RAW and JPEG captures. This card is also well-suited for video capture, including 8K, 4K XAVC S, 60p AVCHD, 3D, HFR, and Full HD video, and can achieve maximum read speeds of up to 300 MB/s and maximum write speeds of up to 299 MB/s. Thanks to its V90 speed class rating, minimum write speeds are guaranteed not to drop below 90 MB/s.

To help facilitate card usage in almost any environment, as well as keeping your content safe, Sony has built the TOUGH Series with a rugged design that can withstand drops up to 16.4' / 5m, immersion in up to 16.4' / 5m of water for up to 72 hours, and is bend, dust, X-ray, magnet, and anti-static proof, and resistant to UV light and temperature extremes from -13 to 185°F. The TOUGH Series is also up to 18 times stronger than standard SD media (180N compared to 10N) and features a one-piece molded construction that is ribless with no write protect switch, helping to further guard against physical damage that can affect SD cards, such as a broken plastic casing, a broken data protection lock, and broken connector ribs. Should the card's data become compromised, you also benefit from the option to download File Rescue software for free to help recover deleted content.

UHS-II media achieves its speed through an extra row of pins and while this card has been designed for cameras that are UHS-II / V90 compatible, it may be used in devices that do not support UHS-II / V90. However, bear in mind that this card will then default to your device's speed class and bus rating, such as UHS-II and V60, which supports minimum write speeds of 60 MB/s, UHS-II and V30, which supports minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s, or UHS-I and U3, which also supports minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s. If your device does not support U3, this card is compatible with the U1 and Class 10 standards, each of which guarantees minimum write speeds of 10 MB/s.

General Features
TOUGH Specification Cards
SF-G series TOUGH specification cards are designed for dependability. The one-piece molding body with high hardness materials is 18 times more bend resistant than the SD standard, impact resistant for drops up to 16', and the highest dustproof and waterproof level (IP68).
Fragile Parts Designed Out
By designing out the weak parts of conventional SD cards - the ribs and write-protect switch -reliability is vastly improved. This reduces risk of difficulty in recording data if broken.
Superior Water and Dustproofing
The fully-sealed one-piece molding meets the highest specifications for both waterproofing and dustproofing. With an IP68 rating, the SF-G series TOUGH specification cards can withstand fine dust, mud, grime and immersion in 16' of water for up to 72 hours.
Ultra-Fast Write Speeds
Take burst-shooting and high-resolution video recording to the next level with ultra-fast write speeds up to 299 MB/s, which is fast enough for even the highest performance camera with a UHS-II interface.
V90 for Capturing High-Resolution Video
Support for the latest V90 video speed class makes this card perfect for high-resolution video recording. V90 is the highest grade of video speed class which guarantees a minimum write speed of 90 MB/s, so you can feel confident that there won't be any dropped frames or caching, even when capturing up to 8K video.
Faster Transfer to PC
With read speeds of up to 300 MB/s, you can transfer large files such as 4K video or a bunch of high-resolution images to a PC in seconds. Less time waiting, more time doing.
SD Scan Utility
It would be a disaster if your camera suddenly stopped storing images. Over time, all SD memory wears out and the card stops recording data reliably. Sony's SD Scan Utility regularly and automatically scans your SD memory card and lets you know when it's about time to replace it with a fresh card. Disaster avoided. Available for Windows and Mac.
Reliable In All Conditions
In addition to top-rating dust and water proofing, TOUGH specification cards are resistant to X-rays (ISO7816-1), magnetic fields, UV, and temperature extremes, all while retaining broad compatibility with cameras and other SD card readers.
File Rescue
File Rescue is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that recovers data5. Available as a free download for Sony memory card customers.
Backward Compatible with UHS-I
While its highest performance is obtained using a UHS-II compatible camera, users can also use these cards in UHS-I compatible equipment, with read speeds of up to 95 MB/s and write speeds of up to 90 MB/s.
