Thermal camera for DJI Inspire 1

UPDATE: DJI have since announced the new Zenmuse XT thermal imaging camera which they have developed with FLIR Imaging. Read more about it here.

Great news for DJI Inspire 1 owners and anyone who wants to get a thermal imaging camera airborne. Heliguy can now supply a FLIR (Forward Looking Infra-Red) camera upgrade for the extremely versatile Inspire.

FLIR camera for DJI Inspire 1

In collaboration with UK company Tectronik , we can supply a tiny, fixed FLIR camera, on-board recorder and transmitter plus an extra monitor for your Inspire’s controller. The kit also comes with a remote controller for the camera for adjusting settings from the ground up to 1km away. It operates on a separate 868 MHz frequency while the video feed is on the normal 5.8 GHz FPV channels. Meanwhile the Inspire and its camera work on 2.4 GHz via DJI Lightbridge.

A special bracket has been designed to attach the FLIR just above the Inspire’s camera gimbal so that it’s pointing downwards at a 45 degree angle.

The whole set-up is self-contained and complete with its own power supply, rather like our FPV camera upgrade for the Inspire 1. It records onto an SD card on a small, on-board, digital video recorder.

The TTCM-336-2 has resolution of 336 X 256.
