Flight attitude stabilisation and positioning system for model helicopters. The breakthrough: Many vain attempts have been made to create a stabilisation system for free-flying helicopters. The control aids familiar in the modelling world are either just additional x-y gyro systems, or simple light sensors which only work if the horizon is very flat, with no obstacles in the line of sight. Until now, regulatory systems offering genuine inherent stability have been enormously complex, due to the unavoidable fact that it is impossible in a helicopter to measure angles of inclination relative to gravity; the second problem is that of obtaining a stable geographic position; these problems could only be overcome if at least a GPS system was installed in the model. If you were piloting a conventional helicopter and left it to its own devices for a few seconds, it would quickly start to drift off in a random direction, at the same time constantly accelerating - in short, it would not survive for long. The HeliCommand unit stabilises the geographical position of the model helicopter as well as its flight attitude.

BavarianDEMON is a new kind of altitude stabilization and positioning technology, and is now available for model flying applications and professional helicopters. Improved precision and security, with optional 3D support. Stress-free hovering and circuits right from the outset. Reduces the incidence of crashes, and therefore costs. Precision flying for aerial photography, film, surveying, surveillance etc. Ideal support for long-range flying. Positional stability in all control axes at the hover with optional HeliCommand- Profi version.
Fail-safe with fully automatic landing. Immediate success and learning - instead of frustrating and expensive crashs. Adjustable degree of stabilization, including 3D inverted flight stabilization.
Stress-free helicopter flying. Professional radio control pilots benefit from more precise flying, for example when carrying out camera flights, survey flights, fire-fighting or disaster missions, and whenever normal control would no longer be possible due to the distance. The full version stabilises all three axes, and provides almost autonomous hovering. Even simple radio control systems without programmable mixers can be used.
The Breakthrough Many attempts have been made to build a stabilisation system for untethered helicopters. Existing control aids designed for models are either just a supplementary x-y gyro system, or a circuit based on simple light or infra-red sensors, which only work if the horizon is absolutely level, and there are no visual obstructions.
Until now it has only been possible to provide genuine autonomous control at great expense whilst incurring considerable compromises. The unavoidable fact is that inclination measurement with gravitation is impossible when we are dealing with a helicopter; with conventional systems at least one GPS system has to be included in the on-board equipment if geographical stability is required.
If a normal helicopter is left alone for just a few seconds, it quickly drifts off in an arbitrary direction, accelerating continuously - which means, it would not survive for long. It incorporates a new form of ground sensing which works incomparably more accurately than a GPS system when at very low altitude, i.
In contrast to GPS, the new process also works even when there are buildings or trees in the immediate vicinity, and in indoor locations - provided that the lighting conditions and contrast are adequate. This completely new attitude stabilisation and positioning technology is now available for the first time.
It was developed primarily for professional and industrial applications, but now includes a version specifically for modelling use. The system contains multiple control and measuring circuits which provide impressively reliable results. Characteristics are not previously achieved quality of regulation, compact architecture and low weight, and all this for an affordable price.
Technical features: - Dual independent instrument systems and sophisticated software for excellent reliability - New type of sensing process provides stable positional monitoring, completely independently of the visible horizon - Electronic triple-axis gyro with accurate attitude control and artificial horizon - Instruments can be activated individually; variable stabilisation level.
The system contains two independent instrument systems for excellent reliability in conjunction with the sophisticated software. The professional version contains additional instruments which provide autonomous control of all functions. The position is measured by sensing the ground, using a principle similar to that of the optical computer mouse; the difference is that the positioning system continues to work at altitudes of up to 3 meters or more depending on lighting conditions even at the onset of dusk.
A movement sensor senses the ground in flight, i. Almost every ground surface exhibits contrast, and this allows the system to detect all relative movements in the horizontal direction, just as accurately as a computer mouse on its mat. The supplementary attitude stabilisation features an artificial horizon and three electronic gyros, and works completely independently of the prevailing visual conditions.
As a result, the BavarianDEMON is capable of stabilising the helicopter in the horizontal attitude independent of the visual circumstances in contrast to previous types of stabilisers. When in Position mode it can also stabilise the machine's position above the ground. Of course, in exceptional visual conditions, e. If this should occur, the other airborne instruments automatically assume the stabilising role.
Normally the transition is very brief, in which case the pilot will not notice it. If it lasts longer, the stabilisation automatically switches from "position mode" to "horizontal mode". In this case the pilot will notice the difference, as he has to compensate for any slow drift by giving straightforward control commands. Even in this situation the level of stabilisation is equivalent to that provided by conventional "inertial control" technology, i.

The HeliCommand stabilizes the geographical position of the model helicopter it also stabilizes its flight attitude. The HeliCommand incorporates several control and measurement systems triple axis gyros and an optical CCD sensor to provide a superb of stability. It is ideal for the beginner. It adds a level of control and confidence that prior to this time has been unavailable to any model helicopter pilot. The HeliCommand provides a level of safety and accident reduction that previously has been unknown in the realm of helicopter modeling.
