    Has anyone had a ‘fail code 8’ on an Alta 8?

    The Alta is saying a barometer fail, baro unreal fail
    Pressure reading suspect.
    Temperatures are jumping around,
    And flashing red light on the back,

    any help would be very appreciated.

    Im not a expert I do not know if this will work. But if you open the OPEN TERMINAL then press REBOOT CONTROLLER.

    This might reset it

    Thanks for your reply Jason,

    This was one of the first procedures we tried last night and still we had a fail code 8 with barometer pressure readings suspect.

    Please see attached terminal report.

    we’re thinking this is a sensor or sensor controller failing

    Hi Toby:
    If you've not already done so, you need to open up a ticket with Freefly Support and the best way of doing that is to head over to https://freeflysystems.com/contact
