Freefly has announced the Alta X drone. A follow up to their successful Alta line.
Payload & Flight Time
It has a payload capacity of 15.9kg. You can fly a Mōvi Carbon (20 lb payload) for 20+ minutes, or a max payload for over 10 minutes. With smaller payloads, flight times can exceed 40 minutes.
Carry up to a 35lb payload while maintaining a 2:1 thrust to weight ratio.
With smaller payloads, flight times can exceed 40 minutes.
Alta X folds to half its normal size with the push of a finger. The folding linkages also stiffen the booms to ensure low vibration and precise flight characteristics.
Freefly’s customer’s success depends on their comprehensive and integrated ecosystem that ensures in-field success.
