Compact, powerful, and customizable, the Alta X Drone with Travel Case & RTK GPS 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, landing gear, camera, transmitter, and controller 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.
Alta X Travel Case
- 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

RTK GPS System
This system includes everything you need for installation, including a 10′ right-angle USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable, and a magnetic quick release 1/4″-20 mount for attaching the ground station module to an existing tripod. Please note that you must use Alta Ground Control on your computer along with a long-range radio telemetry link to the Alta X, such as the FRX Pro for Alta X (not included). Without this long-range radio system, only GPS accuracy can be achieved.
