    Hey guys,
    I just saw the new ALTAPro upgrade and am considering it. A few questions I have though:

    1. It says it's an upgrade from the Synapse FC and mentions that it is based on the PX4 FC. Are they just replacing the Synapse with a Pixhawk?

    2. Will our ALTA app still work the same for tuning purposes?

    3. Will the the A8 still fly the same in manual mode as before or will it feel like a different bird? (and will the speed clamping still work the same?)

    Thanks.
    Josh

    Hi Josh:

    1. I'm not 100% sure of this, but I don't think it's an actual Pixhawk FC. See https://freeflysystems.com/knowledge-base/what-hardware-are-you-using-in-alta-pro and https://freeflysystems.com/knowledge-base/what-flight-controller-does-the-alta-pro-use

    2. I don't know. You might want to check our the aircraft flight manual -- link at the bottom of the page here: https://freeflysystems.com/support/alta-pro-support

    3. See https://freeflysystems.com/knowledg...cteristics-compare-to-the-feel-of-the-synapse

    Cheers
    Andy
