Well any new Alta owners out there?
lets give Steve a break
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. Josh
From what I can tell, mine shipped yesterday. Still waiting on a tracking number
As new owners including me start to fly their Altas, I wanted to post a chart from the Freefly Alta user manual found on page #91 for comments take a look
Threw it on Excel to make it a bit easier to view the data...
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.
Update: Just got this in the email!
Dear Pictures From The Sky,

(fedex tracing stuff omitted)
Ours came today. Busing setting up radio now. Looks pretty awesome!
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!
P.S. are the ALTAs numbered so we can tell which ones they are?
FWIW, our deposit was made on 4/15 as a placeholder.
Havent gotten an email yet :/
Also do you have to do additional radio setup when you buy both from them?
i ordered mine 04-28 and hope that i can have the ALTA soon...
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!
Keep us posted. FINALLY a little relief for Steve. Ours comes Wednesday, same config, cept the M5. I'm looking for an M15.
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.
