Elistair unveiled its Ligh-T version 4, described by the company as a new generation of drone tether system, currently providing flight time to 20 commercially available drones, including DJI’s M200 V2.

With the first version released back in 2015, Elistair explains Ligh-T has been deployed by police forces, public safety, private security and industries in more than 50 countries; and was selected by for various major events such as the Superbowl 2019 held in Atlanta with CNN or Trinidad Carnival 2019 known as the biggest carnival in Caribbean.

Ligh-T V4, with its 70-metre (230 feet) long micro-tether, provides power to a range of drones based on its to Plug and Fly Air modules, such as DJI’s M200 V2, M200 V1, Inspire 1 and 2, or the Yuneec H920. Unlimited data transfer is possible through its 10.5 g/m (0.11 oz/ft) micro-tether.


The micro-tether is also equipped with a new Dual Mode Tether Management system (DMTM), enabling motorized control of the micro-tether tension while allowing the user to manually wind and unwind, in case of power outage for instance.

Housed in a rugged cased with an open and accessible interface, Elistair explains the system is easily transportable, optimized for maintenance and fully protected from the elements, allowing it to be deployed quickly in demanding and challenging conditions.

The system is completed by the T-Monitor application that allows for full monitoring of the drone tether station’s state during each flight.
