When flying multiple aircraft with WiFi enabled, take extreme caution to ensure that the aircraft connected to the laptop/mobile device is the desired craft. Failing to connect to the correct device may result in an inadvertently arming a aircraft or disarming one that is inflight.

ALTA Pro passwords must be longer than eight characters and should be unique for each ALTA Pro. Do not use the same password on multiple machines!

We suggest not selecting ‘Connect Automatically’ when using WiFi to connect to ALTA Pro and clearly labeling each 900/868MHz RX/TX pair.

4. Once the password and SSID have been updated, hit the save button at the bottom of the menu. 5. Power cycle ALTA Pro and ensure you can connect to ALTA pro using the new password. 6. Connect to Futaba radio system and confirm both receivers work and system arms.
