Taking the Freefly Pilot for a Test Drive

by Rob Ruscher

Had a really good time testing out the Freefly Systems Pilot. Wanted to see how this could add value to car shoots and it blew me away. The controller is so compact but still feels great in your hand. The follow focus is so smooth and definitely stands next to the best hand units out there.

The joystick is great, but takes some practice. There’s options via the MōVI App where you can dial in sensitivity for pan and tilt. Before you go on a paid project, I recommend you figure out which settings work best for you, for the shots you’re looking to get.
