Flyability Cockpit is the application used to pilot the Elios and Elios 2 systems. Its main use is to allow the pilot to view the live video feed from the on board cameras, thus enabling FPV flights. In addition, a dashboard with useful flight and camera telemetry is shown on the display. The current version is v2.5, which is compatible with both Elios 1 and Elios 2. The app is designed and optimised for the tablets provided by Flyability (Samsung T580 and Active 2).
