Product:

The LaTrax Alias Quad-Rotor Helicopter delivers quad-rotor thrust with an auto-leveling 6-axis flight stabilization system. The package includes a programmable 2.4GHz radio system with four AAA-sized alkaline batteries, a high-capacity 650mAh Lipo flight battery, USB-powered fast battery charger, and four spare props. The complete package provides everything you need to fly!

The quadcopter measures 9.25” (235mm) on the rotor diagonals and the frame is made of sturdy molded lightweight plastic. The quad feels light and sturdy when picked up weighing just 3.53oz (100g) with the flight battery. The colorful high-intensity LED optics provide visibility and flight orientation, day or night.

The 2.4GHz transmitter features low-battery indicators for both the transmitter and the quadcopter flight battery via built-in telemetry. Three customizable flight modes from easy to expert provides just the right control input for pilots of all capability. Pre-programmed automated maneuvers allow for tricks and flips with the ease of a button press. A variety of features like digital trim controls, indicators, LCD display, 10-model memory, safe arming, numerous flight controls, interchangeable sticks, and thumb pads unlock the performance and potential of the Alias in flight.

The bright colored handy-carry box design of the LaTrax Alias reveals the main features of the product in all four colors and shows what comes inside before it is even opened. A 3-page colored Quick Start guide and detailed 9-page manual comes in four languages.

 

Performance:

There is no assembly required other than installing the four AAA-sized alkaline batteries in the transmitter. The Alias manual and Quick Start guide are well written so I browsed through them while charging the 650mAh Lipo flight battery using the supplied USB-powered battery charger. I had no problems charging in fast mode using a USB 2.0 port on my PC.

 LaTrax has a detailed Web site to support the Alias here. It covers everything from a simple overview to detailed specifications and downloadable support for advanced features and troubleshooting.

 The new flight battery comes semi-charged so after a 20-minute charge period I was ready to see how well the Alias worked indoors. The transmitter is powered up first and then the quadcopter. Upon power-up, the transmitter always defaults to Normal Mode which is the easiest flight mode using low rates and full auto-leveling capability to limit the flight angles. A blue LED goes from flashing to solid on the Alias to signify that the radio link is up and ready to go! By simply pressing the left stick in until it clicks, when it is at the full down position, the Alias is armed and will spin the motors by moving the throttle stick up.

 The Alias lifted off the carpet and was incredibly stabile in a 4 foot hover! In Easy flight mode, I could comfortably fly it from room to room. There are some built-in safe features so that when the throttle stick is left idle for 5 seconds or the Alias detects an impact, it will automatically disarm.

 The LEDs are quite bright and the lenses carry the color out to the motor pods so they can be seen in most any light indoors and even outdoors. The LED colors help maintain orientation in the air and direction of travel. They can be easily turned On or Off using the right button on the transmitter.

 Once outside, I tested the Fast flight mode which increases the controllable angle of flight and enables aerobatics. I’m not a 3D pilot but the push-button aerobatics had me performing some flips and rolls with just a press of the left button and a flick of the right stick. I was having lots of fun pushing the maneuvers beyond my skill! The toughness of the Alias molded-composite frame also gave me added confidence as it handled my occasional collisions with the trees and ground. I didn’t try the Expert flight mode as it disables the auto-leveling flight software to give the pilot full manual control. Overall, I was very impressed with the entire Alias design and performance.

The Alias flight times measured around 12 minutes indoors and 10-minutes outdoors with aerobatics and some wind. One of the coolest features is the battery fuel gauge which is fed back to the transmitter using the built-in telemetry. It provides visible and audible alerts when the battery charge level in the Alias is low. This alert gives you time to safely fly the Alias back and land when it is time to recharge the battery.
