We have been working over the last 2 years with 3D Connexion in Germany in order to create a new kind of controller based on their 6 axis sensors.
When the Space Pilot pro came out, we could not resist to open it and dig inside it, and with the assistance of 3D Connexion we are now able to not only use the 6DOF sensor, but also to program all the buttons as simple buttons or " intellegent" inputs ( for example start / stop motors, return to home...).
Major UAV industries claim since years that hobbyists shall not be compared to them, especially in the Multirotor industry. But then, why the heck are they all using RC like input controllers ? :)
We wanted to bring something new, something that is comprehensivce enough for all people, and allowing soldiers on the Battlefiled to be able to fly just with one hand ( Wrist support version) , civilian security agents to learn flying without having to find what mode (1,2,3,4) to use, and simply, something on the missing chain between the very stable and precise flight abilities of flight boards and uav's today, and the input control system.
The Alpha Logik allows to control the UAV and the GImbal at same time with a bit of training ( just 1 hours...) , and any total beginer can fly a multirotor with GPS lock enabled just in a few seconds, and will be able to take off, perform a small routing and land in just 2 or 3 flights !
You can also for example position the multirotor and call the " camera" function to then lock the multirotor and contrl only the gimbal..
We are developping also a special version for disabled persons, at a very affordable price, so that in the future they can maybe why not enjoy the pleasure of flyng just with one hand and also control many devices around them ( wheelchair, automated doors of their vans, lights in the house) , as not only GPS systems allow positionning outdoors, but now also with the new Wifi indoors fro Qubulus technologies or others in Spain ).
This controller has no limits in field of applications, you can program any sequence for gimbals, UAV...
First version is a standard version compatible with any trainer port of standard RC transmitters. NExt version will integrate a 2.4Gz or USH module ( we search for partners for the 2.4Gz module !) and a complete groung operation console is on it's way.
The goal of all this wrk is to provide simple to use systems, avec very compact and lightweight.
We want to thank 3D Connexion for their support during all the development and are happy to be partners with them on this device .
