A world-first

With its protective cage that doesn't impinge on its aerial ability, the Flyabllity Elios is the first collision tolerant UAV designed for confined, inhospitable, hostile and human access impossible inspection environments. Ensure the safety of your personnel while securing the very best data safe in the knowledge the ELIOS and indeed, the equipment or plant it is monitoring, remains safe from contact or collision

Inspect the uninspectable!

This remarkable solution is the first of its kind allowing access to confined and previously difficult and indeed, impossible locations. Simple to set up, fly, maneuver and capture detailed data.
Enjoy piloting certainty with the carbon fibre protective frame. Crash tolerant at speeds up to 15 km/h
Minimise inspection costs and increase worker safety by remotely accessing challenging plant from boilers, tanks, pressure vessels and tunnels

Includes adjustable full HD and thermal imagery recording
The ELIOS comes equipped with high-powered LED lighting allowing inspection and data collection form even the darkest locations
HI-resolution video feedback beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) even in low light or metallic environments

Access difficult, complex and even cluttered places, while keeping personnel safe and securing high-end data.

Designed for commercial inspection professionals, the ELIOS allows you dramatically reduce downtime with rapid and safe inspection and instant data feedback. This high-functioning drone wrapped in its protective cage offers piloting ease, maximum manoeuvrability and includes commercial grade payload inclusions. This is the perfect solution for industrial inspections where rapid setup is required and with the in-built collision management, less experienced pilots can take the controls. The ELIOS is capable of takeoff and landing in almost any confined location and can deliver imagery up to 0.2mm/px - even in almost pitch darkness. Most importantly, it keeps your people safe with its ability to access almost any high-risk or confined space.
