About Freefly Alta 8 Pro

Introducing the Alta Pro line of Multirotor Drones
The Alta Pro line builds on the exceptional first generation of Freefly drones. We’ve added waypoint technology to allow preprogrammed movements and autopilot functionality. Next generation eight-rotor drone with Freefly waypoint technology and capable of 20 lbs payloads.

Upgrading the Way You Fly
Alta 8 Pro forges new paths in autonomous movement with its state-of-the-industry technology stack. Open PX4 integration means you can expect silky-smooth implementations including:

• Complex waypoint-guided autopilot
• PX4, QGroundControl and Pixhawk flight planning
• Third-party app / utility integration using dronecode or mavlink
• Advanced, high-bandwidth position hold

Quick Release
Alta 8 Pro utilizes Toad in the Hole quick release at top and bottom for unparalleled speed and flexibility.

Flight Time
Efficient and lightweight architecture means exceptional flight time, even with demanding payloads.

Small Footprint
Alta 8 Pro transforms from the world’s most capable drone to the most portable in minutes, thanks to folding props and folding swan neck booms.

Built to Perform
Balancing performance and efficiency, the Alta 8 Pro airframe weighs only 13lbs but can carry a 20 lbs payload.

Alta 8 Pro continues the Alta legacy as the first multi-rotor drone to accept a camera on the top of the airframe.

Precise Positioning
By fusing GPS data with our IMU and barometer, the Alta 8 Pro is able to hold position even in difficult weather conditions.

Silent Drive
The Alta 8 Pro utilizes sinusoidal motor drives that are custom tuned to match the F45 and are optimized for speed, reliability and robustness.

Height Hold
Alta 8 Pro fuses readings from accelerometers, barometer and GPS to create high-bandwidth height control flight mode.

Long range telemetry modems give the user access to real time mission planning and critical flight information from 1000+ feet away.

Closed Loop Control
The Alta silent drive motor controls have incredible closed-loop control of the propellers.

Cutting Edge Software
The completely redesigned Alta Pro flight controller runs open PX4 flight stack for quick and powerful interfacing.

• PX4 mission autopilot
• Advanced, high-bandwidth position hold
• User-definable LED lights for maximum pilot visibility

Streamlined Usability
From case to landing, we’ve honed every step of the Alta Pro experience to give the pilot an edge over the competition.

• Case to flying in under 2 minutes
• Integrated payload quick release on top and bottom
• Folds flat with no tools

Precision Meets Power
Freefly’s proprietary motors and motor drives give Alta Pro drones unmatched capacity. Pilots can turn on a dime while carrying industry-leading payloads.

• Capable of 20 lbs payloads
• Silent drive technology for low noise and precise closed loop control of propellers
• 10-year proven Freefly reliability and robustness
