Astro is a compact professional multi-rotor aircraft designed for industrial and cinematic applications. Astro is built on the success of the Alta family of aircraft and includes new technologies like Auterion Skynode and Freefly SuperLight Batteries.

Astro is the next generation of Freefly aircraft. Astro emphasizes expandability and customization to make sure it can stand up to all challenges thrown its way, while still being the reliable workhorse drone that Freefly pilots know and love.

The Pilot's Operating Handbook describes complete operation of aircraft and flight control systems. Read and understand this manual before operating Astro.

This handbook is not a substitute for adequate flight training. Training requirements can vary when operating in different countries or under different flight conditions. Always consult local regulations before flying Astro. In areas where there are no flight training requirements, it is the sole determination of the pilot-in-command as to whether he or she has the appropriate level of training or experience for a given flight. Always set and adhere to personal minimums and fly within your own capabilities.
