HDaerial provides the new Cineflex Elite with the ARRI ALEXA camera. Now aerial cinematography, feature film quality is now affordable for any production anywhere in the world. The new lightweight Cineflex Elite and ARRI ALEXA camera provides a lower cost of operation than any other aerial gyro-stabilized system.
The Odfjell and WTHR Air to Air projects were shot with the Cineflex Elite and are great examples of the beautiful footage captured by this gyro-stabilized system


The Cineflex Elite houses the ARRI ALEXA Super 35 camera and Canon 4k Digital Cinema Zoom lenses into the 5 axis gyro-stabilized Cineflex for an extremely stable image in most weather conditions. Onboard recording is available to SxS Pro Media cards, and 3G single or dual link for ARRIRAW capture. Action scenes can now be filmed with high speed rates up to 120 frames per second. Lens choices include 14.5-60mm and 30-300mm zooms.


The Canon Digital Cinema Zoom lenses provide versatility and impeccable optics. With onboard recording inside the helicopter and instant playback, maximum flight times can be achieved without the need to land the helicopter to reload film magazines or digital media. The ARRI ALEXA extends the value of aerial filming production by simultaneously recording ARRIRAW 2880 x 1620 files to a Gemini 444 and Apple ProRes 1080p to SxS media. Recording options include SxS 64Gb Pro Media, Gemini 444 ARRIRAW digital recorder, Sony HDCAM SR, AJA KiPro, and the NanoFlash. Other record decks available upon request.


The Cineflex Elite is an efficient choice for lowering aerial filming production expenses. The lightweight Cineflex Elite system is less expensive to ship, than other gyro stabilized systems.


The Cineflex Elite can be mounted on most aircraft including the Astar AS350 and Twinstar AS355, Bell 206 Jet Ranger, Bell 206L Long Ranger, Bell 407, and the Robinson R44. The Cineflex Elite can be rigged in one third the time it takes to rig Super 35 format digital camera systems.
