Freefly designed the Cinestar 8 to carry large payloads for long flight times. It was developed as a robust aerial platform for professional use. The range of MōVI stabilisers was originally produced to work with the Cinestar.
In an industry where every gram counts, Freefly designed the CineStar to be as sturdy and light as possible, using carbon fibre and other lightweight materials to increase flight times and provide a system with unmatched rigidity allowing for even smoother footage. Fully adjustable vibration isolation system ensures smooth and stable footage in even the most demanding filming conditions.
The “open architecture” of the CineStar allows for cameras such as the RED Epic to be flown on the same frame that carries a Canon 5D.
The Ikarus is Heliguy’s upgraded version of the Cinestar. It has better motors and props so that it can handle the MōVI MR gimbal. That will allow the aircraft to carry a payload of up to 6.5 kgs.
Heliguy also stocks spares for the Cinestar and the Ikarus.
