    See the Best Drone For Inspection In Action – Flyability Elios 2

    Hi Guys,

    George Burne here, just jumping on and guest blogging today to tell you about the Elios 2 at our next event – who needs a marketing team ay?!

    If you work in commercial inspection, hazardous spaces or the emergency services you’ll not want to miss our Live Drone Demo Day on the 5th of March, Rugby.

    This event in the only opportunity to see Flyability’s Game Changing Inspection Drone – Elios 2   in action free of charge in the UK.

    “So what is the Elios 2 drone?”

    From taking off to identifying an imperfection or problem, you can complete a full inspection within a couple of minutes. This dramatically reduces downtime and eliminates the immediate call for rope access and your team working in hazardous situations.

    The Elios 2 is now approved as a formal inspection tool by RoNik Inspectioneering and API (American Petroleum Institute), and is the most reliable and precise indoor inspection drone available on the market.

    Its unique specifications make this drone suitable for a whole host of applications, especially those that traditionally pose harm to human workers, or need heavily resourced operations such as tank inspections, bridge and mine inspections or hazardous chemical area inspections.

    With cutting edge data capture and specialised features that include oblique lighting for three-dimensionality, distance lock for accurate depth perception measurements and stabilisation for meticulous precision, the Elios 2 allows you to navigate every inch of the most complex and confined assets from a safe location.

    “What will I see at the Live Drone Demo Day?”

    I’ll be live at the demo day showcasing the very best of the Elios 2 capabilities in a live commercial inspection simulation,  and we’ll have the opportunity for you to take the controls and see how easy this drone is to operate. You’ll see first-hand why this drone is said to be the most insightful, dependable, and accurate indoor inspection drone available.

    Junio Palomba – Flyability EMEA Team Manager will be joining me too, making the trip from Switzerland to provide his expert knowledge on the Elios 2 within the oil & gas, maritime and power generation sectors.

    And it doesn’t stop there, our Live Drone Demo Day will showcase the UK’s largest range of Drones, Cameras and Software, so not only will you see the Elios 2 in action, but you can also experience a range of other equipment too.

    I’ve made this short video to explain more:

    • Inspector can become trained operator after 2 days training
