Industry Leading Multi-Rotor Flying Platform from Freefly

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. 

Effective Simplicity

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.

Smooth, Stable Shots

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.

Precise & Reliable

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.

Efficiency & Reliability

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.

Optimising Quality

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.

Bought props they sent them.

March 9,2018


Great service as usual.

March 8,2018


1st class service and delivery overtime, thanks Guys.

March 3,2018


High delivery cost, but very fast, they communicated well, and when delivered goods was damaged during transport replacement was sent immediately. Excellent behaviour and service. Ok with high delivery cost.

March 2,2018


It as good because I got a great product and although the weather was terrible for a week meaning deliveries were delayed all was solved and the team was supportive. The only reason that I have given it a 4 star rating is because my order was placed on Friday and should have been dispatched in order for me to receive it on the Monday before this U.K snow issue, it wasn't processed due to technical issues and if I hadn't rang them I probably wouldn't have got the order in the first place but the customer service team were polite and helpful. If it wasnt for that then it would have been a 5 star rating.
