Freefly represents the intersection of art and technology. Our team consists of industry leading specialists all focused on one task – inventing solutions to allow unrestricted camera movement. Freefly initially created the CineStar line of multi-rotor camera platforms which allowed smooth, stable and dynamic low altitude aerial maneuvers. After years of research and development in camera stability, Freefly has created the MōVI® stabilized camera gimbal. Our goal with the MōVI® is to empower a new era of stabilized cinematography on a variety of platforms, from handheld to helicopter and everything in between.
Designed to hand-hold camera packages up to 12 lb., MoVI® M10 operates both in single-operator mode, where the camera person steers the camera’s panning and tilting, as well as in a dual-operator mode, which gives a remote operator the same camera-steering control via the included remote controller and a wireless connection.
If rock solid HD video is what you are after, the Cineflex® Elite camera system is your answer. Actively stabilized with military grade technology, the Cineflex can pull off any shot you have in mind. Compact and lightweight, it can operate at up to 200 mph in any weather condition on almost any aircraft. With the Cineflex, the operator can pan a full 360 degrees and has 165 degrees of tilt and +/- 45 degrees of roll available, all with amazing accuracy and stability.
Inside, the integrated camera is an Arri Alexa M, capable of recording dual-link 4:4:4 up to a resolution of 1920×1080 in a variety of formats including RAW, on top of which the Cineflex Elite utilizes high-quality Canon HD lenses. From the comfort of the cockpit, the Cineflex’s laptop provides complete control of all camera and Lens functions. With the embedded Arri Remote, the operator has access via a touch screen interface to all the functions of the camera. However advanced this system is, it uses special stabilization circuitry allowing it to travel anywhere in the world as it is not ITAR controlled.

Tyler® Nose Mount
Mounts to front of helicopter Control iris, shutter, zoom and focus from inside the helicopter 180º fit capability. The Tyler® Nose Mount is a low cost aerial cinematography solution for following POV shots, flyovers and looking straight down. However, since the Nose Mount is not a stabilized mount, shots can sometimes suffer from vibration and jitter.
The Nose Mount’s control box allows the operator control of tilt, features a 5-inch Standard Definition, color LCD monitor, footage counter and provides limited control of Arriflex film cameras. Cameras other than Arriflex require their own camera control devices with at least 12 feet of cable to operate. The Nose Mount works with Eurocopter A-Stars and Bell 206 and Bell 207 series helicopters.
Tyler® Middle Mount
All camera controls assessable by operator mounts to front of helicopter Mass gyro stabilized Mounts on either the right or left side of the helicopter. The Tyler® Side Mount is a versatile stabilized camera support system. It mounts on either the right or left side of the helicopter and is useful for tracking circling and limited charging shots. If you’ve ever tried to shoot handheld from a helicopter, you’ll appreciate the Side Mount’s large springs and gyros which smooth out camera movement and isolate the camera package from vibration.
A key feature that sets a Side Mount apart from other stabilized camera mounts is that all camera control functions are accessible by the operator allowing you to change settings, clean the lens and reload the camera without needing to land. This is aided by the Side Mount’s large windscreen, which protects the camera and operator from windy conditions inherent in open door helicopter flight. A Tyler Side Mount can be used with Eurocopter A-Stars, Bell 206 and Bell 207 series helicopters.

- HD Capable
Sometimes it just isn’t practical or safe for everyone who needs to see what the helicopter sees to fly during filming. To solve that problem, we have powerful video transmitters allowing the crew on the ground to watch real time what the crew in the air is doing. HD COFDM transmitters are also available for live event coverage and other HD applications.
Air to Ground Communication
- Aviation radio
- Noise Cancelling headset
ACW’s air to ground communication systems allow you to efficiently coordinate between aerial and ground units to get the shots you want and ensure the safety of your crew.
