Quad Rotor Flight Re-imagined,
More Powerful, More Durable, More Fun!
Alias is a clean-sheet design that focuses on the performance
and design elements that make flying, and even learning to fly, fun.
The first mission objective was durability. Alias is built around a
unique molded-composite frame that is combined with clever high-tech
construction to make it extremely light and virtually indestructible.
Your flying fun goes on and on without worrying about breakage from
crash damage. The next mission was performance. Fun always comes from
having more power so Alias' motors have 50% more power than standard
motors, and when combined with the lightweight design and high-tech
materials, Alias is lightning quick and ultra-responsive. A completely
new flight control system was developed that provides unmatched 6-axis
stability that works in the background without impacting performance and
speed. It acts like a virtual spring that snaps Alias back to level
controlled flight no matter what situation you find yourself in. New
pilots can fly faster and perform aerobatic maneuvers sooner than they
ever thought possible with Alias' unique flight control system.

Auto-Leveling Six-Axis Flight System
Alias is equipped with unique, proprietary flight control software
that delivers full six axis control. The flight system acts like a
virtual spring that always snaps the Alias back to level flight when the
controls are released. With the system in Easy mode, anyone
can quickly master hovering and flying — just minutes after takeoff!
The software was finely tuned to work transparently in the background to
add fun and stability to flight while still maintaining Alias' quick,
responsive control and connected feel with the pilot.
Three Flight Modes
Alias is equipped with 3 flight modes. Easy
takes full advantage of the auto-leveling flight control software for
rock-solid stability. In Easy mode, flight angles are limited to keep
the speed in check while new pilots are developing their skill. In Fast
mode, the auto-leveling flight system is still working for you, but
Alias' full speed potential is unlocked, along with the ability to
perform exciting aerobatic flips, twists, and rolls at the press of a
mode disables the auto-leveling flight
software to give the pilot full manual control. Alias shines in Expert
mode with responsive, linear control that will satisfy veteran pilots.
Alias can even help developing pilots to sharpen their skills without
worrying about crash damage or breakage before moving on to costly,
Alias is engineered for having fun, which means practically
eliminating down time and costly repairs due to crash damage. Alias is
equipped with a unique, molded-composite frame that is virtually
indestructible. Whether you are just learning to fly or an experienced
pilot pushing the envelope, crashing is inevitable. Alias is made to
withstand impacts along the way for worry-free flying fun that goes on
High Intensity LED Optics
Visibility is critical for discerning the orientation and flight
direction of a quad-rotor heli. Alias offers maximum visibility, day or
night, with colorful high-intensity LED optics. When the sun goes down,
the unique lens design and brilliant LEDs light up the sky, clearly
defining the outline of the Alias and making incredible night flying
The LaTrax Alias includes four independently controlled, high-output
motors — with 50% more power than standard motors. This extra power
gives the Alias impressive quad-rotor thrust for performing high-speed
flight maneuvers. Directional control is easy to achieve by varying the
power and thrust from each motor. The high-mounted drive system elevates
the props and the gears preventing them from getting tangled in grass
and other surface debris when the Alias is swooping down near the
2.4GHz Multi-Mode Transmitter
Comfortable ergonomics and precision control were the priorities when
it came time to design the Alias transmitter. Alias is able to fly for
long periods of time, so the transmitter is lightweight and fits
comfortably in your hands. Out of the box, thumb pads are installed on
the gimbals for easy, relaxed flying, much like what you would expect
from a video game controller. For traditional pilots, sticks are
provided and can be easily installed. The gimbals themselves were
carefully selected to provide very precise control, with just the right
spring pressure and linear feel across the entire range of motion. These
gimbals are precisely tuned to the flight software to give the pilot a
one-to-one connected feel with the Alias. Alias immediately builds pilot
confidence as it responds accurately to the transmitter inputs.
Functionally, the transmitter is also designed to enhance your flying
fun by simply being easy to use. The 2.4GHz control means you never have
to worry about your radio interfering with others. Just turn on the
power and you're always connected. There is no external antenna to break
off or worry over. A detailed LCD screen provides clear information and
visually guides you through the transmitter menu functions if you
choose to customize how your Alias flies.
Telemetry Enabled Battery Fuel Gauge
The Transmitter receives telemetry information from the Alias, and
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 to
you when it is time to recharge the battery. It sounds simple, but it's
details like this that were engineered to work together to make your
flying experience as easy and fun as possible.
Powered by Traxxas
The radio system is powered by Traxxas, so you can count on the
performance and reliability. Plus it is backed by world class Traxxas
customer support and the Lifetime Electronics Warranty. The Radio system
also utilizes Traxxas Link model memory technology that automatically
stores and loads the settings for up to ten Alias helis. You just power
on the models, and let the transmitter do the rest.
Exciting Push-Button Aerobatics
The high thrust, low weight, and incredibly responsive control of the
LaTrax Alias allow you to perform amazing maneuvers with just a press of
a button and a flick of the stick. These maneuvers typically take
pilots hours of flight time to perfect, and LaTrax makes them available
to you right out of the box. They can be performed in succession for
impressive freestyle air shows.
Flips and Rolls:
Alias is programmed to perform
single flips and rolls by simply pressing a button and moving the flight
stick in the direction you want to flip or roll. Forward or back flips,
left or right rolls, and even diagonal flips are possible. Alias can
even be programmed to perform 3 or even 5 flips or rolls at a time and
recover to level flight.
Alias will rotate around its center axis
(yaw) while still maintaining a virtual heading lock and normal flight
control. This is an extremely difficult maneuver that even veteran
pilots struggle to perform. Alias does it at the press of a button while
you continue to fly normally.
For all of you pro pilots out there,
turn up the rates to their maximum settings in Expert mode, and attempt
all these maneuvers manually. Alias lets pro pilots push their skills to
the limit without fear of costly breakage from crashing. Alias has the
durability, power, and responsiveness to grow your skill as you become a
LiPo-Power for Maximum Flight Time
To maximize flight time and fun, Alias includes a 650mAh LiPo
(Lithium Polymer) battery pack. LiPo is the best technology for Alias,
delivering high-current output and plenty of capacity in a compact
lightweight package. Flight times as long as 15 minutes are possible.
Battery installation is simple; just slide the battery into the slot,
plug it in, and tuck the connector into the special clip.
High Output USB Fast Charger
The Alias is too much fun to wait long between flights, so a USB
high-output fast charger is included for the battery. Just plug it into
any powered USB port, plug the battery into the charger, and you're on
the way to the next takeoff. At full output, charge time for the battery
is approximately half an hour. The LED keeps you informed of the
battery's charge status for no-guess charging. An optional high-output
dual battery charger is also available (sold separately).
Pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware is used throughout for extra strength, and easy maintenance and repair.
Soft compound rubber feet are integrated into the main frame
construction to cushion impacts and to help Alias stick the landings
The Alias rotors were designed in software and tuned on a
specially-made dyno to provide maximum thrust and efficiency. A unique
manufacturing process was created to ensure perfect balance for smooth
and consistent performance. The specially-blended colors are super
intense for extra visibility.
Molded 2-Piece Colored Canopy
The tight fitting canopy is molded in super-bright colors for long
range visibility. The durable material resists impacts. The canopy is
easily removed if you want to change your color scheme.
