Before the launch of Alta X the Freefly team completed over 500 hours of flight and simulated flight testing. The summary and details for these flights can be found here.
For these test the team at Freefly pushed the Alta X harder than we think a customer would ever imagine. This meant stressing the machine to the limit in order to ensure robust performance in the field.
Freefly also leveraged a small group of external beta testers during this phase to ensure they were pleased with the Alta X performance. We did have a difficult time getting the test machines back from several of these testers (Ahem Pat Weir) 😂
