Flir Tau and UAV - ISeeIt.ca - 10-03-2012 01:12 PM

I'm looking to expand my infrared business to now include larger building envelops (vertical) and as such was looking to get an Octocopter (8 bladed RC copter) platform to carry a Tau 640 camera mounted on a gimbal.

Has anyone every tried a similar combination and if so, how successful was your investment?

Hi Isee,
I worked with Draganfly on integrating the Tau into their miniature helicopter:

You can call Cory Baker at 1-800-979-9794 ext 6104
There are many others as well, but I am most familiar with Draganfly and they seem like a good organization with a good product. They are located in Canada.
Best regards,

Ok it has been a while since my original post.

Has anyone been airborne with an ANY IR camera?
How feasible is it?
Can you get enough detail to satisfy a client requirement or is it still better to walk the roof?

I have my UAV flying now but with an HD video camera only.
