Drone company DR-one from Sint-Truiden becomes a dealer of the French brand Elistair, a manufacturer of drone technology that specializes in tether systems for surveillance drones, for example. With such a system, a drone is attached to a long power cord so that it can remain airborn for hours. Some relevant stakeholders such as police zones and security firms came to watch a demonstration at DronePort in Sint-Truiden last Wednesday.

“Surveillance companies and police services often need a permanent eye in the sky,” says Rob Nuyens from DR-one. “With systems such as the Safe-T and Light-T from Elistair, the drone can stay in the air for a long period of time. With a demonstration at DronePort we want to introduce interested people to these systems.” During the demonstration, drone pilots Guy Verhoeven and David Moisan held a DJI M210v2 rtk in the air with the help of the Elistair Safe-T tether.

There was a lot of interest among the guests and DR-one therefore wants to organize more demos in the future for a targeted audience. “The fact that the manufacturer is also present is always a great added value. This ensures very short and direct communication. As a brand new dealer, we are very happy with this close collaboration and are delighted to be able to add a new premium brand to our portfolio,” Nuyens concludes.
