    Alta X is Packed with Cutting-Edge Features That Make It The Ultimate Professional Drone

     With a maximum payload capacity of 35lb, the Alta X can handle a wide range of equipment and accessories, giving you the flexibility to capture endless aerial data. The Alta X features a convenient quick release mounting system, allowing you to attach accessories on the top or bottom of the aircraft effortlessly.
    Freefly understands the importance of stability and image quality. The Alta X comes with an adjustable vibration isolation system that minimizes vibrations, ensuring smooth and crisp footage.

    Additionally, you can stay connected and in control with the Alta X's long-range data link. It provides a reliable and secure connection, even at extended distances. Freefly offers an extensive ecosystem of accessories specifically designed for the Alta X. From camera gimbals to lighting systems, you can expand the capabilities of your drone to suit your needs.

    The 33-inch blades equipped with ActiveBlade technology minimize vibrations to just 1/5th the normal level. This ensures incredibly smooth and stable flight performance, enabling you to capture professional-grade footage.

    Never worry about keeping up with the action again, ALTA X has a top speed of over 60mph (95km/h).

    ALTA X folds to 30% of its full size to fit in the same case as ALTA 8 while still being able to carry 175% ALTA 8’s payload. This case is TSA approved and has been tested to ensure ALTA X arrives to location ready to go.

    External Power
    Five user accessible power expansions allow ALTA X to power any accessories or payloads you need to do the job.

    Easy Integration
    ALTA X is designed to be a platform that can be customized for any aerial need; from cinema, to forestry, and bridge inspection, ALTA X is a versatile tool ready for any challenge.
    Active Blade
    Four ActiveBlades reduce the motor vibrations to 1/5th the normal level. This innovative solution to reduce vibrations increases the lifetime of ALTA X and helps keep any payload stable.

    Flight Modes
    ALTA X is equipped with top-notch sensors and GPS modules that enable it to uphold its position and altitude, even in adverse weather conditions. This capability ensures reliability and confidence during both autonomous waypoint missions and piloted flights.
