Flying with Alien Command is easy. When you centre the control stick, it will automatically return the aircraft to level flight. It works over a wide range of weather conditions. A simple calibration adjusts the Alien Command unit to the local environment, and a sensitivity control changes its responses to match pilot skills.
Alien Command is an excellent teaching aid because it maintains stable flight while the student develops flying skills (the key is to centre the sticks to regain control). Advanced pilots find it useful for flying and landing under windy conditions. It can help tame an unstable aircraft, and is ideal for maintaining control during your first flights with a new model.
How does it work?
Alien Command looks at the horizon with infrared heat sensors (this same technology is used in thermal imaging cameras). The Earth is warm (even when covered with snow) below the horizon, while the sky is cold above the horizon. The unit identifies this temperature difference. When it senses changes in aircraft attitude relative to the infrared horizon, it sends corrective signals to keep the aircraft level.
Can it be turned off?
If your transmitter has an unused channel, you can control Alien Command from the ground. Turn it on when it’s needed, and turn it off when it isn’t needed. If the channel has proportional control, you can also remotely adjust the units sensitivity.

Highly experienced team in their knowledge of drones & very willing to share their expertise with customers & general public. They have a great website with a vast array of kit. Competitively priced & fast delivery service. I can highly recommend them.
Fast delivery considering I bought in-between Christmas & new year. Spot-on item at a great price too.
Excellent service. Online ordering was well executed, product delivery was bang on time, and customer service was print and very helpful. The Osmo Pocket I bought worked as advertised.

Had a brilliant and hugely informative day with Scott as a New Pilot. Great location, good instruction and exactly the right content. All for free too - superb value for money!! Scott is a top guy; relaxed, easy to get on with and vastly experienced. Would recommend him, and HeliGuy to anybody. Best in the business. Thanks Scott and a privilege to be at your last New Pilot day - your guys have some act to follow!
