Introducing the all new Alta X


We designed Alta X from the ground up to capitalize on the benefits of large, efficient props while maintaining the crisp control and unmatched precision the Alta line is known for.

Pull back the curtain to see how Freefly creates the world’s toughest drones


Designed To Perform
Fly a Mōvi Carbon (20 lb payload) for 20+ minutes, or a max payload for 15 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.

Small Footprint
Big Impact
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.

Alta X travels in the same case as Alta 8, carries 175% the payload and goes from case to flight in under 2 minutes.
