AlienFlight "Classic Narrow" Brushed FC
IMPORTANT: this is not a toy!
This flight controller is a flying experiment and a historical monument.
To make it fly, you need to be a geek. If flashing firmware makes you smile, this is for you.
- ATmega32u4 mcu
- MPU6050 accelerometer/gyro sensor unit
- 4x 9.5A ESCs, integrated
- USB programmer, integrated
- serial connection for external DSM2/DSMX sat receiver
- bind button
- modular wiring and plugs
- dimensions: 26.7mm x 31.75mm
- weight: 3.6g (without Rx)
- included: receiver cable, JST power cable
To configure basic settings (such as input ranges and receiver settings, you need to edit and compile an Arduino sketch.
You can find the latest sketch here: -> AlienWii Classic Narrow firmware
To fly this FC, you need an external DSM receiver. We recommend the LemonRX DSMX satellite RX.
To use a DSMX sat you must enable DSMX_BIND_11 or DSMX_BIND_22 and the corresponding SPEKTRUM 1024 or SPEKTRUM 2048 defines in config.h file and recompile with Arduino.
It is produced in Germany, with carefully selected components, to the highest quality standards available.
Each board is individually finished and tested by hand.
Good hardware is just the foundation.
The key to good multicopter flight are well tuned algorithms.
There are hundreds of settings you can change on an open source FC. To make use of the potential of the AlienWii, you need to learn. A lot.
If you dont want to learn, this is not for you.
If you like learning, if you enjoy the process of getting smarter and making something, you will have a good time with the AlienWii.

The following historic video tutorial described the basic elements of an Alien Brain. Note that peripherals have changed over time, but the spirit and main operation remained. It just got stronger and smaller.
