New Gear Announcement | Freefly Releases the Alta X

The team at Freefly has been hard at work developing a brand new product that will allow filmmakers to push the boundaries of camera movement further than ever before. The Freefly Alta X has just been released. 

This new product incorporates many of the lessons they have learned while developing earlier products, as well as the insightful feedback received from their customers. What have they come up with?


Introducing ALTA-X from Freefly on Vimeo.

Freefly has designed the Alta X from the ground up to capitalize on the benefits of large, efficient props while maintaining the crisp control and unmatched precision the Alta line is known for.

The Alta X is designed to perform - with the ability to fly a Mōvi Carbon (20 lb payload) for 20+ minutes, or a max payload for 15 minutes. With smaller payloads, flight times can exceed 40 minutes. It is able to carry up to a 35lb payload while maintaining a 2:1 thrust to weight ratio.

The main idea is that the Alta X has a small footprint, but an extremely large impact. The Alta X folds to half its normal size with the push of a finger. The folding linkages also stiffen the booms to ensure low vibration and precise flight characteristics. Alta X travels in the same case as Alta 8, carries 175% the payload and goes from case to flight in under 2 minutes. Alta X is built to carry just about anything with the integrated quick-release system on top and bottom of the aircraft.

Alta X features 3 battery voltage power outputs and 5V, 12V DC to DC converters to power your payloads. Additionally, Freefly have also broken out the following ports for easy access.

Check out the Alta X - live now and available to order.
