Power

We power many of our camera systems and more with the Blueshape® batteries. They offer longer operational times to most every system we power and offer higher charge cycle counts than other competitors. BLUESHAPE makes a wide range of batteries designed for the V-Lock mounting system, the most popular standard in the video industry. Employing the world’s best industrial quality Li-Ion cells, BLUESHAPE is proud to provide an array of products with the highest energy density available on the market today and suitable for a wide range of video production equipment, from light use to high demand cameras.

Freefly® ALTA

The Freefly ALTA multi-rotor unpacks, ready to shoot, in under five minutes. It is easy to fly, powerful, rigid, adaptable, reliable, and is a UAV optimized for up to 15-pound payloads. Confidently fly RED, ARRI and other professional cameras with our drone, guided by our state-of-the-art Synapse Flight Controller. Capture cinematic aerial shots like never before with the option to mount the MōVI on top. 

 

Specifications

  • Flight time: 10-15 (location/elevation variables apply)
  • Lens supported: 3-4lb.
  • Cameras supported: Helium, Dragon, Epic, Alexa Mini or similar
  • Top speed: 30mph
  • Blades: 6
  • Cases: 3
  • Crew requirements: 2
  • FIZ (Focus, Zoom, Iris) Control: Dependent on camera+lens weight
  • Set up time: Initial setup - 45min, Normal setup - 8min
 

Given the name "The Workhorse" by our team, the Mōvi Pro is the hard working stabilization platform used to carry the cinema cameras of today's largest productions. Flying the Arri Alexa Mini or a RED Weapon setup with full F.I.Z. control is what this configuration spends the majority of its time doing. Freefly's latest round of improvements and refinements to the older M15 bring us to the Mōvi Pro with a stronger pan motor, integrated wiring and much more. We can trust we'll be providing a top notch experience when this gimbal is on your project.


Matrix X8

Supports 3D and IMAX camera Solutions

 
 

The Matrix X8 is our largest multi-rotor aircraft capable of putting out 120lbs. of thrust thus enabling it to lift much heavier payloads. It thrives in harsh conditions or at altitude when smaller and more compact solutions simply can't perform.

Ground Level Services

 

Freefly TERO

The Freefly TERO is a completely new way to move the camera. The system allows for an extremely dynamic low camera angle coupled with full 3-axis control of the MōVI stabilizer to create never-before-seen shots. With our custom Vibration Isolation System on a car as smooth and agile as this, you’ll rethink what is possible from a chase car. 


Cameras We fly

Our UAVs are custom configured to carry the best imaging technology

 

CUSTOM solutions

Being able to operate "off-the-shelf" (OTS) equipment is one thing, but our background is in engineering and building our own aerial platforms. Our in-house machining technology allows us to outfit current OTS solutions with custom hardware, higher-end components, improved avionics and more by creating parts from scratch. By using tools such as AutoCAD® and SOLIDWORKS® we can take a concept and bring it to life with completely custom UAS solutions.
