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.
Most Common Applications
The Alien Command unit is suitable for any helicopter with a 90 degree swash plate.
Falcon 3D / Mini Pred
Trex 450 XL HDE

Smooth deal with Heliguy although my bank did their best to wreck my day by making a typo on their end and took five ( 5 ) hours and several phone calls by me to sort it, no one at my bank apologised, so much for ulster . . . .

Quick informative reply to my query.
From: Bruce Pullman
Fabulous reassuring support from Kevin - I had worried and had received no clear answer from DJI forums (DJI people on it seem wholly useless - Chinese bots?!?) nor Mavic Air Help on Mavic Pilots. Are there any better forums?
From: Paul Kassner
Very fast response time.
Although the product I was looking for is now longer available, Steve replied quickly and explored and possibilities to help. Very helpful and great to deal with, which you don't always get from internet dealings, so thank you, I appreciate the effort!
Great advice, wish I could spend all day there and absorb everything. Organ building is great but.... maybe its time to move on! M.
