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.

I would like to congratulate the team on some exceptional service that I recently had. I got in touch with Kevin in Repairs recently as I only a few days before heading to Croatia when my Mavic Camera Gimbal decided to have a malfunction. He took upon himself to do everything in his power to ensure it was couriered to you from Surrey and returned in time for my departure. I can't tell you how delighted I was to see it arrive prior to leaving as my continued work with a work provider depended on me Droning this particular Cycle cruise.

Fast, efficient & friendly!
In all honesty, this guy (and heliguy of course) saved my helicopter hobby and fascination for me. I am the happy owner of a 400 heli again and cannot get enough of it. The help and service recieved is above and beyond and is completely genuine as it goes. Thank you Scott and Heliguy.
