Unleash your aerial creativity

Sony is launching into the skies with the Airpeak S1, bringing years of experience with cameras and the movie industry with them. They've engineered their first quadcopter from the ground up with aerial photography and cinematography in mind.

This drone flies fast and smooth with a suite of manual and automatic flight modes. And it has the distinct advantage of being able to take any of Sony's popular Alpha full-frame mirrorless cameras airborne. Now videographers can use their favorite Sony cameras to capture breathtaking footage from high above.

Need help? Give our commercial drone specialists a call at 1-800-315-4620. They'll make sure you're getting everything you need for your next project.

Dedicated gimbal (sold separately)

You'll need a dedicated accessory, the Gremsy Gimble T3, to mount a camera to the Airpeak S1. Once mounted, you can directly control the gimbal and camera with the included remote controller. You can also fine-tune the settings of the camera and lens while in flight for impressive aerial precision.

Flexible camera and lens options

The Airpeak S1 is the lightest drone on the market that's capable of carrying and controlling a compatible Sony Alpha full-frame mirrorless camera. It's also compatible with select E-mount lenses for a wide range of kit combinations. Pilots have a ton of excellent tools on the table to choose from with the Airpeak, like the Sony Alpha 1, which offers stellar 8K video quality and 50.1-megapixel stills.

Robust controls and mission planning

The included remote controller can mount tablets or mobile devices with screens up to seven inches. Pilots can then control the drone and connected payload with the Airpeak Flight mobile app. In concert with the secure Airpeak Base web app, you can plot out preset flight routes and launch them whenever you're ready with Mission Flight mode. These routes let you provide detailed instructions down to camera settings and positioning. You can then review prior flight logs, adjust your routes, and re-run them at will with Repeat Flight.

Sony Airpeak S1 aerial quadcopter

Outfit the Airpeak S1 with any of Sony's Alpha full-frame mirrorless cameras for some serious optics.

Intelligent, stable flight

The drone has a powerful vision-sensing processor that integrates data from five-way stereo cameras, infrared range sensors, and more to establish real-time spatial awareness in all directions. This helps it detect and avoid obstacles with automatic deceleartion and breaking. With the Airpeak SI, you can confidently navigate enclosed spaces and even areas outside of the range of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System).

Before each flight, the aircraft performs a full systems check to warn you of potential issues and prevent a problematic launch. It also runs these self-checks mid-flight, initiating an emergency landing automatically as needed. If the battery is low or signal is lost, Return to Home (RTH) automatically brings the drone safely back to you. RTH even generates a route that bypasses restricted airspace automatically.

Partner up

Two heads are often better than one. You can gain even more control of the Airpeak S1 on a mission with a teammate. Dual Operation Mode lets one person pilot the drone using the FPV camera while another controls an attached gimbal and camera kit. This mode requires two remote controllers, but getting started is easy. Whenever two controllers are connected they are auto-assigned to the pilot and camera operator.

Aerial Drone & Flight Performance

Airpeak S1 Drone: The Airpeak S1 aerial drone is supported by an included remote controller, the Airpeak Flight mobile app (for Apple iOS), and cloud service which work together to create a high-performance aircraft system. From piloting and camera work to flight programming and data management, the Airpeak S1 is comprehensive and advanced aerial drone. The Airpeak S1 features a front gimbal-mounted FPV camera for live-view feedback. The Gremsy Gimbal T3 can be used to mount an Alpha Series full-frame mirrorless camera and Sony E-mount prime lens (all sold separately) for capturing still-images and recording videos. The Sony Airpeak S1 is capable of carrying a camera/lens system (including the Gremsy Gimbal T3) of up to 5.5lbs (2.5 kg).

Powerful & Stable Flight Performance: With a max speed of 55.9mph (25m/s), maximum angular velocity of 180°/s and attitude angle up to 55°, Sony Airpeak S1 offers incredible creative freedom for dynamic flying capabilities and powerful flight performance. The propellers, motor and ESC that make up the flight propulsion system, combined with the dedicated remote controller achieve optimal wind resistance. The Airpeak S1 can withstand wind speeds as high as 44.7mph (20m/s), and can maintain stable flight in erratic upper-level winds and strong low-level canyon and coastal wind. These specifications are with no payload and the obstacle brake function disabled.

Dedicated Propulsion System: Airpeak S1's propulsion system is designed by Sony engineers to achieve maximum flight performance and energy efficiency. The powerful yet lightweight brushless motor optimizes 17-inch propellers for maximum power and minimum energy loss, and the Electric Speed Controller (ESC) is carefully designed to regulate the whole system for peak efficiency. The Airpeak S1 is also equipped with a unique high-performance flight control system that integrates all sensor information such as IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), direction, barometric pressure and infrared ranging to optimize the propulsion device to ensure stable flight and high maneuverability. By integrating this propulsion system to the information from the sensors, it realizes increased stability and highly responsive flight control.

High Performance Sensors: Stereo cameras equipped with Sony's image sensors are installed in five locations (front, back, left, right, bottom) of the Airpeak S1 aircraft. Sony's Vision Sensing Processor, which processes camera data at high speed and with low power consumption, and proprietary algorithms are used to accurately estimate the aircraft's spatial position and orientation in real time, enabling stable flight even in environments where GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) reception may be hindered, such as indoors or under bridges. The Airpeak S1 also uses Multi-directional sensors to enable its obstacle braking function. The front, rear, left and right stereo cameras and the infrared range-finding sensor mounted on the top recognize obstacles in the vicinity of the aircraft, allowing the aircraft to automatically decelerate and stop according to the behavior of the aircraft and the surrounding conditions.

  • Increased Stability: High-precision sensors and the refined flight algorithm enable Airpeak S1 to accurately determine its environment, location, and positioning and keep low-level flight shake to a minimum. Airpeak S1 can fly smoothly and safely through wooded and obstacle heavy areas, for steady shooting even in the most demanding close ups.
  • Obstacle Avoidance: Airpeak S1 combines five directional stereo cameras with infrared range sensor for optimal obstacle avoidance. The automatic deceleration and braking functions allow it to intuitively respond to the environment and its situation. The obstacle brake function can be enabled in both automated and manual modes, and there is the option to restrict sensing to a specific direction, or disable the braking function altogether.

Versatile Flight Modes: The Airpeak S1 is equipped with 3 different flight modes (Standard, Velocity, Altitude) to make flying and creating even easier. The Flight Mode switch in on the included remote controller. Whether for speed and power, or smooth and steady, you will be able to find the flight mode to support optimal performance for your application and skill level.

  • Standard: In Standard Mode, all sensors (including obstacle detection) are turned on for an intelligent, safe and stable flight experience.
  • Velocity: The Velocity Mode was developed in-house and differs from a regular Position Mode by reducing the effects of wind and external influences on hovering, turning and maneuvering, making it easier to recreate flight routes with more accuracy. In this mode, you can adjust the horizontal speed of the aircraft by adjusting the tilt of the control sticks on the remote controller. The aircraft will hover when you release the control sticks to return them to the central position. The Velocity mode also allows for customization of maximum speeds, angles, acceleration rates and other parameters. By enabling an On Course Function, you can accomplish accurate and flawless recreation of a circular flight path with ease when in Velocity mode.
  • Altitude: In this mode, the flight altitude is maintained. The obstacle brake and Vision Positioning functions are disabled. The aircraft position is not automatically maintained and the aircraft is easily drifted by the wind, so skillful stick operations are required to control the aircraft. You can adjust the tilt angle of the aircraft by adjusting the tilt of the control sticks on the remote controller.

Self-Diagnostics & Return To Home: The Sony Airpeak S1 will automatically run a full system check before starting the motor. It will alert you to any possible issues, and restrict takeoff and landing if necessary. The Airpeak S1 is also capable of self-checks during flight, and can immediately notify you if there is an issue, and make an emergency landing when required. The Return to Home (RTH) to home feature will automatically activate if the Airpeak S1 or remote controller's battery is low or the signal is lost, bringing the aircraft safely back to the home point. And if the return route has restricted airspace or obstacles, the aircraft can automatically calculate a bypass route. The Return to Home (RTH) feature is also convenient to bring the aircraft safely back to the home point at the end of an aerial flight or project.

Retractable Landing Gear & Detachable Propellers: The Sony Airpeak S1 is fitted with a landing gear with open/close legs in-flight, allowing the gimbal to pan without worrying about them appearing into images. The Airpeak S1's propellers are light, compact, and exceptionally durable. Their quick release mechanism makes for easy attachment and removal of the propellers. Extra propellers (PPL1785) are available and sold separately.

Airpeak Base: Airpeak Base is a web app (for Windows PC and Mac computers) used to efficiently organize drone projects, from flight planning and flight log organization, to reviewing equipment status and usage. Use the app to plan a detailed flight route, download flight logs from the aircraft to view data on past flights, or create a new flight plan from past flight logs. Airpeak Base can also be used to view the equipment status and usage logs, and set up error warnings and maintenance reminders, to reduce the risk of unexpected problems on site. Your flight logs can only be viewed and managed on your account ensuring data privacy and security.

  • Information, Data, & Logs. Aircraft data is shared to the cloud and can be viewed in Airpeak Base. Status information from multiple aircrafts can be checked in one location ensuring more efficient flight preparation and planning. Airpeak Base also stores past flight logs so that error data can be checked after the event. And as customer support for Airpeak S1 is coordinated with the cloud, uploading data from flight logs can enable efficient and quick problem resolution. All aircraft information, including logs, can be uploaded to the cloud via the Airpeak Flight app on your compatible Apple iPhone or iPad device.
  • Flight Plans & Projects: With Airpeak Base, you can also create advanced flight plans and automatically fly the aircraft along the same course repeatedly, as if the drone were on rails installed in the air. With the Mission Flight mode, you can set the aircraft's speed and position (latitude, longitude, altitude) along with the timeline, and also specify the direction of the gimbal and the timing of camera for both video and still image capture. This is not only for straight paths, but for curved routes as well. The aircraft can also be programmed to repeat the same path and can recreate the route with flawless accuracy every time. The Repeat Flight mode enables recreation of a flight path from the log, including gimbal and camera movement, ideal for continuous shooting of a fixed point or when accurately reproducing the same flight path multiple times. Manual control is enabled during Mission Flight and Repeat Flight, allowing pilots to tweak the route or change the angle of the gimbal during flight.
  • Equipment Management & Notification: Airpeak Base allows you to check the status of the aircraft and can provide notifications if necessary. In the equipment management screen, information on the equipment used is automatically listed and managed based on the flight log. This allows you to check the condition of the aircraft before going to the field, minimizing on-set issues. Manage logs from past flights, use a previous flight log to create a new flight plan, or check back on flight errors after the event.

Airpeak Plus: Airpeak Plus is an optional cloud-base service that is available by paid subscription and provides additional data storage, advanced geofencing options, and import/export of flight logs. Geofence allows you to set up of restricted areas and altitudes in, while AirMap provides information and data on proposed flight plans. Using the geofencing feature in conjunction with reliable information can help avoid accidentally entering restricted airspaces. The optional Airpeak Plus subscription service will retail for around $300.00 for a 12-month period.

Note: Geofence and AirMap does not guarantee not entering into restricted airspace. Please confirm airspace restrictions before flying the aircraft and abide by the regulations as stated.
