Freefly Alta X Drone
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.
Alta X folds to half its normal size with the push of a finger. The folding linkages stiffen the booms to ensure low vibration and precise flight characteristics.
Our Alta ActiveBlade design reduces vibration to 1/5th of the normal level.
Reduced vibration means lower fatigue on components, longer motor bearing life, less payload vibration for cleaner data collection, and of course better footage when shooting.
Designed, assembled, tested, and supported by the Freefly team at our headquarters in Woodinville WA, USA.
Our customer support team, operations, and engineering team all work in the same building to encourage cross-team communication. We even developed our own product development software to ensure our customers’ success remains our priority as Freefly grows.
Reliability without Compromise.
We sweat the details so you don’t have to. Check out some of the manufacturing tests and workflow we created to ensure Alta X will perform day after day in the harshest environments.
Building a drone that flies like the Alta X is just the first step. Our customers’ success depends on our comprehensive and integrated ecosystem that ensures in-field success.
At your HQ or ours, we will teach you best practices and how we operate to ensure the best chance at success.
Realtime and expert help from our US-based support team.
From custom integrations to advice on adapting your payload to an Alta X, our Engineering team is available and eager to help.
We stock all important spare parts to keep you up and running. Customers can order directly from our webstore 24 hours a day and in-stock parts will ship same or next day.
Predictive Maintenance / Real-Time Aircraft Monitoring
With the optional industrial package, users can have Freefly support and Auterion’s predictive maintenance suite monitoring your Alta X live and alerting you to any potential issues before they become a real problems. Replace parts as needed, not as planned.
We pay attention to what our customers are asking and make it all available for users on our website. No “email for more info” or “our rep will contact you for details” we value efficiency and transparency.
We partner with top companies to offer more valuable and integrated packages.
Alta X is built to carry just about anything with our integrated quick release system on top and bottom of the aircraft.
We’ve made the software stack equally as flexible by using Auterion Enterprise PX4 and supporting the MAVSDK.
A lightweight, low-profile quick release unit which provides an easy mount and release solution for your Alta to a variety of payloads.

Alta X features 3 battery voltage power outputs and optional 5V, 12V DC to DC converters to power your payloads. Additionally we break out the following ports for easy access.
• 3 x 10a Fused Outputs: 50V
• UART Port: MAVLink UART for accessories
• USB-C: For firmware updates
• I2C Port: Accessory connectivity (parachute, GPS, etc.)
• CAN Port: Power and accessory connectivity
Auterion Enterprise PX4
Auterion and Freefly jointly develop and improve PX4 firmware for use on Freefly drones.
• Control Alta with custom MAVSDK API software which can be used from the ground via radio, or onboard via an expansion computer (not included).
• Keep flying safely with the latest software updates.
Freefly RTK GPS
Alta X can be equipped with centimeter level precision by adding our multi-band RTK system.
Using the latest GNSS module from u-blox (F9P) our RTK will give you rock solid height and position hold.
