The AscTec Falcon 8 offers many extreme uses for filmmakers and studios, who want extraordinary scenes. The advantages of an AscTec Falcon 8 for professional use on set are its operability, low weight, maneuverability and price – especially when compared to other system capable of carrying a camera.
“With the new AscTec Trinity technology the AscTec Falcon 8 works like a virtual camera dolly. It’s like a flying steadicam.”

/// To ease tension behind the scenes:
More safety and stability with a focus on the scene. Through the professional use of an AscTec Falcon 8 on set, its advantages become obvious including its ease of use, low weight, speed, maneuverability and favorable cost – in particular in comparison to other camera-mounted flight systems. Other systems that are equipped with the same digital cameras have a comparative flight weight of more than 5 kilograms. That means stricter constraints at every shooting location, extra costs as a result of the individual flight permits required for each day of shooting and a greater risk every time it is used.
/// Smoother flight characteristics in video mode:
In video mode, the control input is actively softened. The video mode was specifically developed for complex film projects and offers features that are unique worldwide such as the capability of automatically flying any path or trajectory*. Imagine the AscTec Falcon 8 as a hovering steadicam that you can direct around the scene manually or according to pre-programmed settings, while adjusting the camera yourself – independently of the flight maneuver – and relying on the horizontal correction. No need for laying plates, stringing wires or installing mobile cranes. For low or high-altitude flights. In sunshine and twilight. Within and outside city limits, in valleys, canyons, over mountains, roofs, land or sea. Define the location and the time and, with AscTec Falcon 8, you’ll have the scene in the can in no time at all. Or repeat exactly the same flight as often as you like until you get the scene right.
