elistair Safe-t 2 drone tether

Elistair's most advanced tethered drone solution.

What is the Elistair Safe-T 2?

The Elistair Safe-T 2 sets a new standard for tethered drone solutions, offering real-time persistent observation capability with a range of compatible commercial drones, including the DJI M200 Series.

Thanks to its unmatched power efficiency, safe persistent flight time and unlimited autonomy, this advanced drone tether is ideal for persistent intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions, and high-bandwidth communications. 

The Safe-T 2 offers up to 2.2kW maximum continuous power and 2.8kW peak power, allowing higher flights and heavier payloads, and enabling operators to cover larger areas with a single system. 

The Elistair Safe-T 2 is robust and can be integrated into vehicles and fixed structures.

The key features of the Elistair Safe-T 2 are:

  • 125m swappable micro-tether
  • IP54 Ingress Protection
  • 2.8kW unlimited secured power
  • Dynamic voltage optimisation
  • Mountable and easily integrated
  • Dual-Comms: Fibre optic and BPL option
  • Compatible with more than 50 drones, including DJI drones

A new standard for tethered drone solutions

Since the launch of its first tethering station in 2015, Elistair has quickly become the industry leader in tethered drone systems with more than 600 stations deployed to help security forces monitor events, secure sites, and protect assets. The Safe-T 2 which has been built on the success of the Safe-T product line - deployed in more than 60 countries by governmental organisations, industrial groups, and security forces - will take tethering operations to a new level.

Prevent Fly Away

A Patented Safety Brake is integrated with the Safe-T 2 to prevent your tethered drone from flying away.  

The Safe-T 2 allows you to adapt the maximal tether length, depending on the safety area you need around your drone. This enables mission flexibility, giving you full control of your tether for each specific flight.

This tethered drone station acts as an anchor, retaining the aircraft in case of an emergency.

The Safe-T 2 also integrates Elistair's live flight management system with the T-Monitor mobile app, offering optimal flight control for safer operation.

mission flexibility

The Elistair Safe-T 2 is rugged and versatile for adaptability.

Easy Integration

Thanks to its modular metallic structure, fastening rails, and compact size, the Safe-T 2 can be integrated into vehicles and fixed structures. 

For added flexibility, the Safe-T 2 is agile enough to be deployed by a singer operator.

A Development Toolkit is available for easy integration to your platform. 

Swappable Micro-tether

The micro-tether spool can be swapped quickly and easily, providing an adaptable solution for your mission requirements.

The Safe-T 2 features an innovative winch system which can be changed by the operator to utilise the best tether weight/power for each drone. No longer do you have to compromise, as you can choose the best configuration for the job at hand.

Weather Resistant

The Elistair Safe-T 2 has an IP54 rating, ensuring it is a rugged and robust solution in difficult conditions.

With its modular metallic structure, the Safe-T 2 is designed to sustain high vibrations and shocks, and has an increased resistance to dust and water, making it a mission-critical and field-proven tethered drone solution.

dual communications

Unmatched speed and security in data transfer.

Best Performances To Date

The Safe-T 2 features a Dual-Comms option, allowing operators to maximise their missions with the best performances to date.  

With the integration of fibre optic and BPL data links in parallel, the micro-tether ensures a data link redundancy for unmatched speed and security in data transfer.

The fibre optic ensures a low latency and high-speed data exchange. This makes the Safe-T 2 the most suitable tethered drone station to meet the requirements of your Telecom and Broadband applications.

Backed up with the BPL data link, the Dual-Comms option is critical for a quiet data transfer during all your missions.

Buying my first drone, a Mavic Mini, from Heliguy was a delightful experience. From my initial enquiry through to dealing with some technical questions, their responses were always helpful and enthusiastically good humoured. I followed their advice and placed an order. Delivery was so fast I had the very carefully protected parcel in my hands in just a few minutes over 24 hours from ordering. Well done Heliguy - Impressive!

Great to be able to call a company and speak to someone that is interested in answering questions, happy to offer information and left me wanting to interact with them again. Thanks Ben!




From: Simon Sullivan


Having now completed my course I have to say that the support, material and learnings provided by the Heliguy team have been absolutely top notch. The course ended up being online due to the current issues in the UK, but the team were always available to answer questions and provide advice at all times, be it via email, telephone or online chat. At all times the whole team were polite, extremely helpful and extremely knowledgeable about all the issues/topics. I would recommend everyone interested in taking a drone flying course use Heliguy.




From: Jonathan Andrews


Steve has been extremely helpful and an absolute credit to HeliGuy. Highly recommended




From: Paul Maloney


When I made the decision to buy my first drone I did some research on where to buy from and Heliguy came out top based on recommendations and price. I had some questions around my purchase and the process and decided email was the best way for me to ask. The response from Steve was quick and responsive. Not only did he answer my questions with all the necessary information he also provided more information and options for me to make the purchase easier. End result was, with very little effort myself, my new drone was ordered and on my doorstep as fast as I could want.
