What is the price of the Flyability Elios 2?

What is the price of the Flyabilty Elios 2? Here is a short article about pricing to make sure you get all the data you need during your decision process.

The question of price is by far the first question we get when people discover our technology. As we want to make sure you get all the data you need during your decision process, here is a short article about price and costs. Before we articulate a number, there is two important things to understand: the difference between consumer and commercial drones, the value behind remote visual inspection in confined spaces using drones.

The difference between consumer and commercial UAVs

Although both UAV categories, the consumer and the commercial, are meant to fly and capture images, their price range have nothing in common. If you open your favorite consumer electronic online shop and search for drones you'll see that pricing ranges from $100 to $5 000. If you start searching for commercial drone price you'll quickly discover that commercial drones start around $10,000 and can go as high as multiple $100 000. This difference in price comes from many factors: the camera and sensors embedded on the drone (the payload), the overall flight performances (speed, wind resistance, battery life), the materials used to manufacture them, but also their technical abilities such as flying partially autonomously or being able to sustain collisions. Commercial drones go beyond the basic need of capturing images. They offer much more advanced features, they are built to meet the need of enterprise users, and are often tailored to a set of very specific applications.

The value behind remote visual inspection in confined spaces

Using drones to perform remote visual inspections in confined spaces serve three important aspects of asset maintenance: increasing workers safety, reducing asset downtime, and lowering cost of operations. Beyond that, performing remote visual inspections allows maintenance operations to be performed in a much more educated way and to a much greater extent. Anytime there is a shutdown the inspection can cover virtually every part of the asset under inspection and not just the part that is usually staged for a manned access. Ultimately, this allows to produce more data, of a better quality, and to gather it at a higher frequency. Although every single use case is different, our customers regularly report savings with seven figures, and the vast majority of them see a return on investment in a few months.
