Freefly

Freefly has been focused on building the world's most efficient professional drone and filming ecosystem for the last decade. They went from a garage startup to powering the majority of film and tv productions in under 5 years. While their early focus was film and video, they realized along the way their drones could do so much more. 

Astro

Astro is Freefly’s compact industrial drone platform.

Freefly understands the need for quality tools. For more than 10 years Freefly aircraft have carried cinema cameras for Hollywood and high-end productions around the world. It carries valuable payloads in high-pressure situations. We also understand the need for flexibility. Astro’s interface specs are open, making it a flexible and reliable tool to get your new ideas in the air.

Each Astro Base includes the the basis of your Mapping drone kit:

  1. Astro Base airframe* (simple tools, and some spare bits)
  2. The Freefly Pilot Pro controller (Herelink RF)

*Astro needs a minimum of 2 SL8 Batteries and 2 SL8 Chargers to fly, which are not included in this kit and need to be purchased separately. The payload is also excluded.

Astro is designed and assembled in USA.

Notes

  • Pilot skill with Manual Mode is required for Emergency Procedures. Learn more
  • Astro uses two Freefly SL8-Air batteries per flight (not included in this kit). We recommend 4 SL8 batteries and 2 SL8 Fast Chargers to get flying.
  • Works with RTK GPS Ground Station, through a user-supplied ground station computer (optional)
  • LTE modem works in the United States only. Learn more
  • Astro Base does not include any vibration isolation:
    *You can hard mount payloads to the chassis.
    *You can purchase the Astro Isolator (for any Freefly payload or 3rd party payloads with the Smart Dovetail interface)
    *3rd party payloads may use Freefly Smart Dovetail Kit (requires integration) with or without a simple isolator mount.
