If you're getting solid GPS lock (iow, no red flashes) the obstacles should not be an issue. If it's moving around and not maintaining altitude when you switch to GPS, then you have other issues, such as bad compass calibrations.

And it's not altitude lock mode, it's attitude mode. Basically meaning that the GPS function is turned off, only using the gyros to stabilize the aircraft. Similar to rate mode on a helicopter tail gyro system. Ever hovered your heli in tail rate mode? The tail doesn't "lock" in...

Again suggest reading up on the manuals.... With the money you've spent and the danger to yourself and others, isn't that time well spent??
