Freefly ASTRO Mapping Payload
Each Mapping Payload includes a Freefly mapping gimbal, 61MP Sony Alpha 7R IVA, a 24mm lens, a USB drive to capture geo-tagged images and a foam insert that nests under the Astro in the Astro travel case.
The Mapping Gimbal natively mounts to your Astro with the Freefly Smart Dovetail system.* This connection provides power and data communication from the camera to the the ground station controller (and LTE network) for camera controls (camera settings and shutter), gimbal control (tilt), and image preview.
Smart Dovetail is not hotswap compatible. To avoid damaging Astro or your sensor, please power off the aircraft before attaching or removing a Smart Dovetail payload.
