    Good question, has anyone else got theirs yet? All the social media around it is doing my head in. We get it, send us the ALTA's! Oh and also, how long until the Movi Controllers are back in stock??

    Not a peep from anyone! Some info if the release has been delayed again would be good.

    Mine was supposed to ship this week but I haven't received a shipment notification yet. There is still tomorrow (Friday) so I'm crossing my fingers it will still ship. I emailed them about it and will wait to hear and will report back to you guys.​

    On Wednesday Bryan@freefly told me that they were shipping out "a couple orders every day", so it will take a while. Patience is key here.

    Mine should have arrived in the first week of August. Then Freefly announced that they will sent my ALTA by the 8th of August with express - but guess what - it didn't arrive yet. Yesterday, customs in Germany confirmed reception and I assume sometimes next week I should be the first ALTA customer outside of the US - as Freefly states.
    Although Freefly is working hard to satisfy their customers - the lack of communication is something where Freefly has room for improvement ;)

    Sweet! Mine was shipped yesterday (Friday) and will be delivered the 19th! Can't wait!

    Josh

    P.S. are the ALTAs numbered so we can tell which ones they are?

    just received mine today! Hope to contribute and ask lots of questions over the next few days! The only thing I've done so far was to open the pelican case and drool a little.
    I have the M10 with the newer landing gear, Futaba 14SG Radio, Tattu 10k batt packs, and brand new Connex downlink setup. Will do some channel mapping and zero payload flights over the next few days if anyone has some specific advise for getting off the ground!
    Cheers!

    We got our Alta on August 12th, and it already has travelled to 3 states, shot for a feature film and a local commercial, lifted a 5D mk3, Sony fs700 and Red Dragon, and has 35+flights on it. This thing is workin!

    Have you had to change tuning settings much for different payloads and top vs. under mounting.
