The Freefly Alta is the first multi-rotor UAV to accept a camera on the top of the airframe, this opens up a new world of filmmaking with sky view.

The Alta moves like no other drone. Freefly has been leading the industry in camera movement for over a decade and have put this experience into the design of the Alta,  which allows the pilot to command up to a 45 degree angle. This allows smooth, precise and dynamic control of camera movement.

Staples Productions have highly experienced CAA 102 certified pilots and are covered by Aviation Liability insurance, so you can rest easy that your next shoot is compliant to all current CAA rules and regulations.
