Compact, powerful, and customizable, the Alta X Drone with Controller, FPV System, FRX Radio & Travel Case from FREEFLY Systems is a modular quadcopter platform that can meet nearly any drone requirements you have. From RTK mapping to carrying heavy payloads, the Alta X can be combined with a variety of optional modules, payloads, and accessories. The Alta X frame comes equipped with four props and motors, with each of the four propellers featuring FREEFLY's ActiveBlade design. ActiveBlade tilts the blade in forward flight to help drastically reduce vibration. The powerful motors and propellers also help give the Alta X its strength. The Alta X can lift and fly payloads up to 35 lb while still maintaining a trust ratio of 1.9:1. With 35 lb of added gear, the Alta X can fly for up to 10.75 minutes. Without any payloads, the Alta X has a 3.5:1 thrust ratio and up to 50 minutes of flight time. Please note that a battery and landing gear for the Alta X are not included. No matter how you use the Alta X, the drone is engineered for easy transport and quick deployment. The propellers and arms fold to cut its physical size by half, and with just a push of your finger, you can expand the drone to full size. When expanded, the linkages stiffen the booms to help ensure accurate, low-vibration flight.
Futaba 14SG Controller & Receiver
The Futaba 14SG controller works with the included receiver to give you full wireless control over the Alta X drone. If you set up an optional transmitter in the Alta X, you can utilize the Futaba's built-in display to receive and monitor flight telemetry.
Alta X FPV System
The Alta X FPV System is designed to wirelessly transmit essential flight telemetry to an 5.8 GHz receiver/monitor (not included), such as battery voltage, heading, and ground speed. It also provides video reference for the Alta X.
FRX Pro Long-Range Radio for Alta X
The FRX Pro long-range radio is engineered to transmit flight telemetry to an operator ground station from up to 1 mile away. Please note that this long-range radio is required for flight operations that involve QGroundControl (manual, altitude, or GPS mode flights).
Alta X Travel Case
This Alta X bundle includes the Alta X Travel Case. This rugged, hard-shell case is the AL2727-1404 Single Lid Case made by Pelican. It's constructed from lightweight, high-impact polyethylene with molded-in ribs and corrugations for secure, non-slip stacking. Pelican also provided increased durability in the edges and corners by adding 20% more material in those locations. A custom-cut foam interior is precisely shaped to hold the default Alta X frame in its folded configuration, an (optional) Futaba 14SG remote, and (optional) Skyview landing gear. Other features include:
- Recessed hardware
- Built-in wheels and extendable handle
- Dual carry handles
- Molded-in, tongue-in-groove gasketed parting lines for splash resistance and tight seals after impact
- Positive anti-shear locks to help prevent lid separation on impact, and reduce hardware stress
- Molded-in metal inserts for catch and hinge attachment points, which help provide strength
Auterion Enterprise PX4
The Auterion is the operating system of the Alta X. It's designed to automate logging and compliance, support RTK use with photo logging, and work with the MAVSDK API for custom software solutions. Custom solutions you can design to be sent from the ground via radio, or onboard via an optional expansion computer.
Powered Expansion Ports
Some of the optional modules and accessories you can mount onto the Alta X require power, and the Alta X is made to provide that with three battery power outputs. Each output provides 10A of current, and you can choose from a 5 or 12V DC-to-DC connection.
