Wanted to jump in here and get more input from you guys. My first purchase was an Inspire 1 that arrived in mid January of this year. I've probably logged about 60 hours of flight time since then. I'm still learning but I feel comfortable flying without the gps enabled in most all situations (there's still room for improvement) but I do feel like I'm getting much more comfortable with the aircraft. I've been toying with the idea of purchasing something along the lines of an Alta in the next year or so if I get more comforable in ATTI mode. My main question is: does the Alta have a similar ATTI mode that keeps the altitude constant? Does it also have a gps mode? Overall, how much harder is it to fly than an inspire? I'm aware that the ALTA is really not out yet so it's all speculations, but I'm sure you guys have a better idea than I do. Thanks for the input!
