The Roswell Test Flight Crew met with several companies while attending Xponential in Dallas a couple months ago. In this episode, the Roswell Flight Test Crew speaks with Marc Gandillon, the marketing manager for Flyability about the company’s ball-shaped industrial inspection drone, the Elios. The cage surrounding the drone is able to rotate independently of the drone itself, meaning that it can stay upright even after it comes into contact with a vertical surface, like a wall. This capability means that the Elios can fly inside enclosed spaces, such as boilers, conduits, sewers, bunkers, crawl spaces, utility corridors, industrial galleries, smoke stacks and other dangerous, hard-to-reach locations. An option range extender changes the location of the radio signal transmitter, making it possible to access facilities that would otherwise block radio transmissions and thereby limit the use of a drone.
