DJI releases fully integrated FLIR camera/gimbal for Inspire & Matrice

Talk about a game changer.  A fully integrated FLIR camera with gimbal.  Opens up a wide variety of uses and eliminates the need for a hodge podge of different components to install a FLIR/Gimbal on one of the most frequently used UAS systems for commercial work.

Yup hate to say it but DJI is killin it.  Come on rest of industry,catch up!  Be innovative!  DJI isn't doing anything particularly innovative, most of it's fairly obvious, but they're the ones getting on with it and producing good commercial products and partnerships.

The solo has great potential.  Wonder if the solo gimbal could be adapted (properly, by 3dr) for a FLIR unit.  That would be awesome.

It's all about capturing the data and you can't do that with small copters, cheap gimbals and cameras designed for action sports. The Zenmuse gimbal allowed us to fly the highest quality cameras and that's what changed the game.

How is this equipment expected to be affected by ITAR export restrictions?

This is what FLIR said to Patrick who was at the launch live tweeting @sUASnews @DJIGlobal No ITAR restrictions with the 9Hz configuration.

@Dogg, I feel the same. we know what DJI is doing. 3DR has done the hard work but needs to catch up commercially. it needs to have a global dealer network and release products faster. I think SOLO is a far superior product and much better quality. 3DR needs to release a FLIR gimbal and camera immediately without delay but make it slightly universal so that it can be mounted in most common frames.

I'd love to see the Solo achieve the same level of integration as DJI has with FLIR.  If the Solo could have options for fully integrated sensor packages such as a LIDAR, a thermal imager, and some sort of hyperspectral imager, we'd have a legitimate commercial inspection sUAS.

Common guys, dont be so pesimistic. The first release of flir thermal drone cam, was flir vue pro, which is Mavlink oped, comes with a gopro gimbal adapter and outs av... It was ment for Iris+ or pixhawk powered drones, long before the Dji stuff...
Check it out. Its simple and cheaper

James, the FLIR Vue and now Pro models are great universal mount camera but I don't know where you got GoPro gimbal mount from. The have a fixed mount GoPro style mount but nothing for a gimbal. Up until this release you had to create your own gimbal solution which is why this is so impressive. I've said for 2 years, the company that comes up with a fully integrated FLIR camera platform will dominate the market. While there have been others most have been $50k and up.

Hi AKRCGUY,
I cant find the pdf that mentions the "optional"gimbal adapter instead the gopro steady mount, but i can assure it was very simple to mount the vue on the tarot gimbal with minor 3d printing..
With an IRIS+ The result was mapping, "as build" 3d capture, hd video and thermal ispection with a sub 3k UAS Total! I can upload samples when i get back to office. Vue pro is on the way so i havent test it yet..
