Im very excited at the moment as we are weeks away from getting our hands on our own Freefly Alta. This is the latest product release from Freefly and will probably be the best ready to fly UAV on the market. It features Freefly’s own flight controller, the Synapse, which has been in development for the last 6 years. By all accounts its pretty special. All the components on the ALTA are custom made by Freefly including silent drive motors. By all accounts these are the quietest motors you can get, so maybe those pieces to camera will be possible now! With Freefly track record of past products you know its gonna be good! It has some very exciting features which are gonna be great for us and allow us new levels of creativity. This is the first UAV where you can top mount the gimbal allowing you to look up in flight. This brings a whole new level of achievable angels and shot opportunities for every shoot. The Alta also folds down and fits into its own Peli case with a set up and de rig time of 5 minutes. This makes it the perfect tool for taking on foreign shoots or shoots that involve trekking to hard to reach places. I wish we had one if these when we had to trek for three hours through the jungle in Vietnam last year!
The ALTA will be able to carry our current main payload of the Movi M15 and Red Dragon so will be being put straight into action.
We will get our Alta at the beginning of August and can’t wait to start using it on jobs. Have a look at some of these photos to get you excited!
