NAB 2016 Tech Talks at the AbelCine Booth: Freefly

In this Tech Talk, Alan Yates and Justin Brown from Freefly stopped by our booth to show off the new ALTA 8 UAV. The ALTA 8 octocopter is a ready-to-fly system, capable of carrying payloads of up to 20 pounds.

The multi-rotor comes fully assembled and can be ready to shoot in under 5 minutes thanks to its innovative design. Quick release top and bottom trays allow you to mount a MōVI on either side of the system, allowing shots from any perspective. The system will ship with an inverted landing gear for top mounting on the drone, but an Aero landing gear (for bottom mount configuration) can be purchased as an accessory. At the heart of the ALTA 8 is Freefly's industry-leading SYNAPSE Flight Controller, which provides intelligent flight control. The Freefly ALTA app utilizes the SYNAPSE Controller in order to help the operator set up, tune, and monitor critical flight information. The app is available for both iOS and Android. Watch the video above for more details.
