Email us at or call us on 1800 119 111 to purchase this product.

Industrial workhorse.

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.

  • 69 tests were completed during the development of Alta X
  • 500 hours of flight and simulated flight testing before launch

Support Ecosystem.

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.

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.


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.
