DroneBoy’s new Ultra Heavy Lift Freefly ALTA X

DroneBoy is very excited to announce that we have added the all new Freefly ALTA X to our Ultra Heavy Lift (UHL) Drone fleet. This unique and extremely capable machine enables us to fly up to 35lbs payloads at speeds in excess of 100km/h.  The ALTA X opens up a new world for our clients as we can now carry a larger weight category of cine cameras, lenses and hi-tech sensor packages safely and effectively.  Does your DP want to fly the Sony Venice?  No problem!  How about the Ronin-2 gimbal?  Yup, we have you covered there as well!  Even custom multi camera 360 rigs, large LIDAR and industrial sensor packages are well within our reach with our  new ALTA Xs.  Bring it on!

The DroneBoy Team have been busy flying our new ALTA Xs and creating hardware specific OPs manuals, getting our pilots checked out and really testing the awesome capabilities of this impressive new machine that the manufacturer, FreeflySystems, is billing at “the toughest drone in the world”. To test this claim we recently took one of our ALTA Xs on a filming expedition to the Himalayas where we flew a RED Monstro 8K cinema camera package at altitudes up to 5000M and put this machine through all its paces in as extreme an environment as we could throw at it.  After that extremely successful mission we have to say that we wholeheartedly agree with Freefly’s “toughest drone in the world” claim. Do you have a large payload you want to fly in a difficult environment?  Go on – challenge us!

Now We Can Fly Any Payload You Want!

Are you looking for “Top Mount” option (camera mounted on TOP of the drone) for your shot? No problem! DroneBoy’s new ALTA X fleet offers “SkyView” just like our ALTA 8s have always done.

Finally we have an UHL drone that deploys as quickly and handles as well as our Inspire 2 Packages. Our ALTA Xs actually fly faster than the Inspire 2s and, due to its incredibly high thrust to weight ratio, they handle like a fine sports car while safely carrying you precious cargo.  Our ALTA Xs will fly almost any camera, lens and accessory package that you can throw at it! We are now offering the DJI Ronin 2 gimbal system as an option to our tried and true MoVI PROs so that our customers have a choice as to which gimbal they want to fly.  More options, great shots and more fun all around!

This is a finely tuned, extremely tough piece of engineering and the DroneBoy Team is very excited to offer it to our clients. Contact us today to find out what our new ALTA X fleet can do for you today!
