Pilot was designed to integrate seamlessly with the MoVI Pro ecosystem. It gives users the ability to adjust key MōVI parameters and get real-time feedback from the MoVI from 600+ feet away. It's built on the same core frequency hopping spread spectrum 2.4Ghz link that is found in the MoVI Pro.
Control Freefly Accessories
The Freefly Pilot can control both the MoVI and F/I/Z outputs using Freefly’s patented MIMIC technology. Users can move the Pilot controller to control camera pointing, as well as Focus, Iris, or Zoom.
Freefly's Pilot features a 75mm soft touch focus knob with adjustable damping and a high-resolution 16bit encoder to give users precise real-time control of Focus / Iris / Zoom or any axes of MoVI Control and can quickly mount to just about anything including:
- MoVI Handles
- ¼ 20 Mount
- 25mm tube
20mm Rosettes allow the Pilot Focus and Iris blocks to mount to just about anything. Freefly has developed a variety of Rosette mounts that allow you to mount these blocks to the entire product ecosystem, these include:
- 25mm Tube Mount
- 30mm Tube Mount
- ¼ 20 to Rosette Mount
Choose Your Grip
Pilot offers 3 distinct grip options for users as well as the info to build your own:

It also gives the ability to define and assign specific controls to separate and independent units. You can give Iris control to one person while retaining focus and zoom on a separate unit. Each unit has its own internal battery and communicates wirelessly to the MoVI from 600+ feet.
