Elios 2 quick start guide

Congratulations with your new ELIOS 2 drone. We are sure you will want to be up and flying as soon as possible, this article will guide you through the steps.

We created a quick Online Training Course to prime pilots on the properties and features of ELIOS 2. It should only take about one hour to complete, and will teach you the basic do's and dont's for handling the drone both in the air and on the ground.

You will find all necessary Manuals on this new Knowledge Base, feel free to browse around for other interesting articles.

Note that Inspector 2.0 or higher is required to analyse the flight data from ELIOS 2. You can download the latest version here.

Also, each drone sold by Flyability or its partners comes with a complimentary Introductory Training. This one-day, in-person training allows future operators to be able to perform standard inspections right from the first flight. Contact Flyability or your local reseller to book this training.

Flyability and our training partners worldwide also offer specialized courses designed for operators who want to take the fast track to use Elios at its fullest. Visit our website for a full overview of our advanced training options, and for experienced users there is also the self training option.

 

We wish you the best success with your Elios 2, and please do not hesitate to contact us should you have further questions.
