Considering this display unit is detachable (temporarily mounted on the heli) and the dictionary definitions of the word "pod" below, perhaps something like FlyPod, DataPod, Control Pod would be appropriate. Any more -pod ideas?

Pod:

* A detachable or self-contained unit on an aircraft, spacecraft, vehicle, or vessel, having a particular function. "the torpedo's sensor pod contains a television camera"

* A protective compartment, as for an automobile's instrument gauges.

* A streamlined enclosure, housing, or detachable container of some kind: an engine pod under the wing of an aircraft.

Better watch it, Angelos. Apple is likely to sue you.

I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.
