    Product Details

    The Flyability Elios is the first collision tolerant drone designed specifically for inspection and exploration of inaccessible or potentially hazardous places. A carbon fibre protective frame means you can access the tightest spaces without the risk of crashing. Discarding the need to sense and avoid obstacles, the Elios can bounce off walls and roll on them to find its way. You can fly close or even in direct contact with humans without any risks of injuries.

    The Flyability Elios is equipped with a full HD camera, a thermal camera, and an onboard LED lighting system with a remotely adjustable intensity. Once you have reached the most inaccessible places, you have all the tools on board to take the best possible shot in nearly any lighting conditions.

    The Flyability Elios is equipped with a cutting-edge wireless communication system that provides a live video feedback allowing the pilot to bring the drone to the most inaccessible places up to multiple hundreds of meters beyond visual line of sight.

    It’s unique specifications make the Flyability Elios suitable for a host of applications including:

    Police & hostage scenarios
    Tunnel inspections
    Mine inspections
    Hazardous chemical area inspections
    Sewer inspections
    Tank inspections
    Bridge inspections


    24 Month Warranty Included

    Full Flyability Training Included


    Integrated Payload

    The Flyability Elios enables simultaneous full HD and thermal imagery recording making it ideal for a whole host of applications.

    Unique Protective Frame

    A unique carbon fiber structure ensures that the Flyability Elios is collision-tolerant up to 15 km/h. Discarding the need to sense and avoid obstacles, you can start inspecting and exploring – without waiting – the hardest places to reach.

    Onboard Lighting

    Powerful LEDs allow easy navigation and inspection in even the darkest of places.

    No Post Processing Required

    A simple data capture platform ensures that recorded data can be accessed immediately without the need for post-processing software. To increase job efficiency, the Flyability Elios uses simple video files that can be read easily read by the tablet connected to the ground station. Flight data, thermal video and selected Points Of Interest (POI) are recorded on a dedicated SD card. By using Flyability Inspector, you can correlate flight data and POIs with both video streams.

    Elios Ground Station

    Elios Ground Station is composed of a remote controller, a tablet and a purpose designed ground control application providing the pilot with live telemetry data, an SD live video stream captured by Elios, and the information and controls that you need to operate it efficiently and safely.
