The Freefly ALTA Drone: A New Way to Fly
The long-standing assumption that cameras must be regulated to the bottom of a drone gets shot down by the Freefly Alta.
Over the last year or so, drones have flooded the market. Freefly entered the drone market with the CineStar, which is a solid professional solution for aerial cinematography. But what really set the CineStar apart from other drones was the integration with the MōVI M5 Stabilizer. Never a company to rest on its laurels, Freefly took the CineStar and took it one step further with the ALTA.
The ALTA comes ready to operate out of the box. With a rock-solid chassis being controlled by the Freefly Synapse Flight Controller, cinematographers have the assurance that they are getting the best Freefly has to offer in safety, stability and versatility. Another exciting feature: hoisting heavier cameras like the RED SCARLET or EPIC and ALEXA Mini is no problem, thanks to the drone’s 15-pound payload capacity.
The Freefly ALTA will be priced at $8,495 and will begin shipping in June of this year. Pre-Orders for the ALTA are happening now at authorized dealers and the initial deposit is $1000.
