The ALTA 6 hexacopter is a professional rig which is designed to carry Freefly's range of MoVI gimbals. It's party trick is the ability to carry the M5 and M15 up top - this opens up a whole range of creative possibilities and in turn makes the ALTA pretty unique in the world of professional UAV's. It's the aircraft that aerial moviemakers have been waiting for. The Freefly ALTA unpacks, ready to shoot, in under five minutes. It is easy to fly, powerful, rigid, adaptable, reliable, and optimized for up to fifteen-pound payloads. Professional and accessible.
Confidently fly RED, ARRI and other professional cameras, guided by the state-of-the-art Synapse Flight Controller. The Freefly ALTA is designed to make life easier for elite aerial cinematographers. It arrives in a robust, industry standard pelican case and is ready to simply unpack and fly. Folding carbon propellers and folding booms allow the ALTA 6 to go from the case to the air in minutes.
The included Toad in the Hole Quick Release further streamlines the process of getting airborne quickly with a MoVI payload. Efficient, powerful custom designed motors achieve a perfect balance between performance and efficiency and set the new standard for heavy lift machines. Cameras such as the RED Dragon, Sony F55, and ALEXA Mini are flown with confidence and reliability with the ALTA 6's 15-pound payload capacity.
Freefly designed the ALTA with the MoVI line of camera stabilizers in mind, with the ability to make a smooth transition from handheld filming to capturing aerials in just moments with the Toad in the Hole Quick Release. A refined vibration isolation system rejects high frequency disturbances from the ALTA allowing the MoVI to create the silky smooth shots it's known for.
This exceptional hexacopter is a professional rig designed to carry Freefly’s MoVI M5 and M15, not only underneath but also on top, opening up many more shooting possibilities - the M10 can also be carried underneath. It’s the drone that aerial moviemakers have been waiting for. The Freefly ALTA 6 unpacks, ready to shoot, in under five minutes.
It’s easy to fly, powerful, rigid, adaptable, reliable and optimized for up to 6.8Kg payloads. Confidently fly RED, ARRI and other professional cameras, guided by the state-of-the-art Synapse Flight Controller.
The Freefly Synapse flight control system represents a new level of control, precision and reliability for unmanned aerial systems. The system combines high quality sensors with proprietary control algorithms to allow users to execute complex flight patterns with ease.
It features an integrated on screen display, high-bandwidth position control, live graphing, dual receivers and has been tested for years by the industry's best pilots.The internal distribution board is weather sealed and conformal coated. It features four 12v power leads for driving LEDs or other accessories, as well as integrated connections for industry standard FPV systems. Customize your ALTA's LED colour scheme to suit your piloting preferences via the ALTA App.
The two key concepts that defined the ALTA 6’s development were making it robust and lightweight. Freefly use the strongest and lightest materials available to minimize aircraft weight, which translates to increased flight times with heavier cameras. The obsession with optimizing for weight and rigidity also pays dividends in extracting every ounce of performance out of the Synapse and M0VI to ensure you get that all-important shot in the most demanding situations. Using cutting edge sine wave drive motor controls with active braking, the ALTA 6 features low noise and precise, efficient, closed loop control of the propeller. High speed data logging allows user analysis of critical flight data.
The Alta 6 folds to 33% of its operating size.
Built for professional cinematography cameras such as RED Epic and ARRI Mini.
Featuring a top and bottom camera mount to help you get a new perspective.
Add your MoVI, transmitter, batteries and camera of choice.

I would like to congratulate the team on some exceptional service that I recently had. I got in touch with Kevin in Repairs recently as I only a few days before heading to Croatia when my Mavic Camera Gimbal decided to have a malfunction. He took upon himself to do everything in his power to ensure it was couriered to you from Surrey and returned in time for my departure. I can't tell you how delighted I was to see it arrive prior to leaving as my continued work with a work provider depended on me Droning this particular Cycle cruise.

Fast, efficient & friendly!
In all honesty, this guy (and heliguy of course) saved my helicopter hobby and fascination for me. I am the happy owner of a 400 heli again and cannot get enough of it. The help and service recieved is above and beyond and is completely genuine as it goes. Thank you Scott and Heliguy.
