Hi!

I've been waiting to get the thermal camera-  they announced a few months ago they would be releasing it, but it's 3 months later and I still don't see any purchase link/anywhere to purchase it...

Anyone have any idea?

Thanks!

I also inquired, and did get an actual response, and was told that the release of the authorised dealer list to order from was imminent .
haven't seen anything yet since.
I too need to purchase one for search & rescue

kk, thanks. Yes - I've been waiting to buy one. I'm trying to decide whether to go the 640 or 320 version, not really sure of what the difference is - other than resolution. (I tend to like higher resolution anyways, so probaly would opt for the 640 even if there wasn't anything else).

But thanks for the FYI then... they get everyone excited - and then no purchase links!

"Coming Soon" is all they will say.
It will get here when it gets here, just like the x5r.

And the x5, and the Osmo and the Inspire itself. All delayed past their announcements
Just the DJI way.

It will be available soon, but for the 640 version you're looking at 10k

At least $10k, and only 9Hz if you are outside the US and Canada.
I don't see them selling too many of these - only to first responders, SAR crews and the occasional Industrial application.

But how can you even use the thermal camera if you are not suppose to flight at night, from what the FAA states and correct me if I am wrong.

Thermal imaging has many daylight applications not just for night flight uses

Correct, this is not meant for the weekend hobby flier.
Same as the new DJI AGRAS MG-1, this aircraft is only built for commercial use for specific customers. Although anybody with deep pockets and need everything DJI will have one on their shelf.

I really would love to get one of these.  The idea of being part of search and rescue is an amazing concept. But that pricetag is brutal.

The primary uses of a thermal camera on an Inspire won't likely be SaR, but Industrial inspection.  PV Panels, Water Tanks, Roof tops, and agriculture.  I'm hoping prices aren't far from the Current Flir Vue Pro line (which is essentially the same as the XT, but with an X3 Gimbal attached....

Customers in the US and Canada can purchase a version that will output 30 frames per second.
Everyone else gets a version that is limited to 9 frames per second.
This is due to US government export controls on thermal imaging technologies.

For UAV applications, this is significant as our testing has shown that flying a TIC requires stable weather conditions and flight platform. Excessive movement or vibration renders the images useless at 9 hz.

Yes,

An the prices expected at release will be very High.  UK sellers now taking pre-orders though so should be pretty close to release date.

I know it's not ideal, but it is an application if I had it.  I'd just like to have one for the option to help out volunteer with flights when I could.  I could ride my quad deep into the search area and then launch from there and use Litchi to do some grids while I just study the infrared.  At the very least, it would be another set of eyes.

US Government export restrictions keep it to US and Canada only.
No other countries get the 30Hz(fps) version.
I have seen some European sites offering the 30Hz version for pre-order but they will not get it out of the US.

The 9Hz version is ok, just not in circumstances where there are gusty winds or the inspire has trouble keeping steady. If it is moving about then such a low frame rate will see the image smear quite badly.
