FLIR introduce new thermal camera Vue Pro


Introducing FLIR Vue™ Pro

Take drone thermal imaging and data recording to the new heights with Vue Pro

With FLIR Vue you get all the thermal imager you need for sUAS operations without having to pay for functionality you'll never use. 

Designed for professional use, FLIR Vue Pro is more than a thermal camera, it is a thermal measurement instrument and data recorder that adds tremendous value to your sUAS operations and services. 

Still with the same industry-leading thermal imaging quality and great value as the best-selling FLIR Vue, the Vue Pro adds full data recording of thermal video and 14-bit still imagery. FLIR Vue Pro also uses FLIR Vue's popular and convenient power-in/video-out connection over a 10-pin mini-USB making integration a snap, and ensuring that you'll have easy access to analog video for downlinking. 

FLIR Vue Pro gives you in-flight control of two camera functions through direct PWM connections, and it's MAVLink compatibility makes it ready for the easy image stitching required for mapping, survey, and precision agriculture applications. Plus, it's compatible with Pix4Dmapper right out of the box 

The convenient mobile app makes pre-flight camera set-up and configuration quick and easy so you won't have to drag a computer out to your flying site just in case you need to change a camera setting. 

Best of all, with MSRPs starting at only $1,999, FLIR Vue Pro is the only thermal imager your drone operations will ever need, and it's affordable for today's commercial sUAS operations. 

FLIR Vue Pro gives you more than thermal images, it gives you thermal data for informed decisions.

On-Board Recording

Vue Pro records 8-bit digital video in MJPEG or H.264 formats and 14-bit still imagery to a removable micro-SD card so you won’t lose any of your data to transmission loss. Imagery is saved to the micro-SD card and can be retrieved either from the card or by plugging the camera into a USB cable, where your computer will see it as a storage device.

MAVLink Integration & Camera Control

In addition to being MAVLink compatible, the same Accessory Port connection gives you access to two camera controls over PWM commands, so you can select color palettes, start and stop recording, or trigger the camera's e-zoom in-flight from your radio controller.

Easy to Configure

Vue Pro comes with a built-in, low-power Bluetooth module, so you can easily configure your camera with our custom iOS or Android apps before you take off. Change color palettes, set your image optimization features, configure your PWM inputs, and start recording all without lugging a computer to the field.


With the same powerful thermal imaging core used in the most popular cameras in the world, FLIR Vue Pro gives expanded flexibility and performance for a price that makes it perfect for applications like:

  • Search and rescue
  • Precision agriculture
  • Roof inspections
  • Power line inspections
  • Substation inspections
  • Cell tower inspections
  • Security
  • Surveying
  • And anything else you can dream up

  • Hear hear.  

    I'd love to see 3DR get onboard with FLIR and integrate it into the Solo like DJI did with the Inspire.  

  • The Flir website still says "Future Mavlink compatible".  Does anyone know when it "WILL BE COMPATIBLE"? 

  • Disappointing that it is analog video instead of digital.  Anyone have a better RCA to HDMI converter than this one:  ?

  • Need an easy way to get this video from the analog USB to a digital micro HDMI so this can also be used on the Solo.

  • Unboxing video

  • Thanks Justin.

  • My guess is that the GeoTagging will be pulled via Mavlink from the GPS to the EXIF metadata.

    Some useful data concerning the wiring diagram

    If you use the ImmersionRC Video Transmitter the 10 pin GoPro compatiblecables $8.99 from ReadymadeRC work perfect to power the FLIR Vue Pro from the

    ImmersionRC Regulator as well as to feed the Video output to the Video TX


  • I see that Pix4d are plugging the new range as being compatible with their mapping there an easy way of geotagging the images whilst using a DJI machine?

  • @John Dennings, Yes, there are a couple ways to do this. You can either select a color palette in the app pre-flight, or you can assign it to one of two PWM inputs. The Color Palette PWM selection gives you the option of setting it up on a two- or three-position switch, and you can assign any of the palettes to any of the switch positions. I have mine on a three-position switch with White Hot, Black Hot, and Ironbow as my selections. It's very handy. (If you're wondering how I got my hands on one, I'm on the product test team.)

  • Too bad it only has analog video output.
