CineStar 6 Revolution


FREEFLY CINESTAR™ 6 & 8
The CineStar is the next evolution in professional heavy lift multi-rotor helicopters. Drawing on vast experience in the areas of professional aerial cinematography, engineering and manufacturing, Quadrocopter and FreeFly Systems have collaborated to create the ultimate aerial platform. Extensive R&D has been invested in the CineStar to create a reliable and robust system for aerial video and photo professionals, allowing for longer flight times, heavier payloads and smoother footage.

CineStar Innovations

Vibration Isolation System
Fully adjustable, patent pending vibration isolation system ensures smooth and stable footage in real life filming conditions.
Camera Gimbal Mounting Plate
Mounting plate allows for quick and easy mounting/unmounting of the camera gimbal for travel.
Quick Release Booms
CineStar booms disconnect quickly and easily for fast packing and a small footprint. Our customers fly almost as much as the CineStar, and making packing/unpacking easy is a priority.
Top Mounted Battery
In addition to providing ease of access to the battery and optimal CG (center of gravity) for best flight performance, the top mounted battery creates a structural cage around the sensitive flight control electronics.
QC3328 Motors
Leveraging the experience of top AP professionals and motor designers, the QC3328 is the perfect complement to the CineStar airframe. While the instinct in motors is always "bigger is better,” every additional gram you add to the airframe cuts your flight time and limits your payload options. With this in mind, we have created a motor that will easily lift your professional payloads without being wasteful.
Threaded Inserts / Nuts
The CineStar line uses threaded inserts in the carbon fiber plate to make assembly/disassembly a breeze. This design ensures that you only need to hold one tool at a time. Never again will you need to hold a lock nut in place with needle nose pliers in a poorly lit hotel room!
GPS/Navi Mounting Bracket
It is important to keep the sensitive GPS and Navi board away from any stray electromagnetic interference. For this reason, the CineStar includes an optional GPS/Navi mounting bracket that allows you to mount these circuit boards out on a boom away from other electronics.
Landing Gear
The CineStar makes use of a 3 point landing gear system for maximum stability on takeoff and landing. The carbon fiber landing gear is triangulated and extremely rigid, so that it can protect your valuable payloads.
