Inspire 2 Camera for Thermal Imaging
Today, we have an episode about the Inspire 2 and its compatibility with thermal cameras. If you’re a drone pilot looking start mapping, you’ll need to know which equipment to buy and how to properly use it.
We take a call from Nir in Georgia, who wants to know which thermal camera or zoom camera is compatible with his Inspire 2. While there aren’t as many thermal camera options for the Inspire 2 as some other drones, there are definitely some products out there. We discuss which thermal cameras and zoom cameras work best with the Inspire 2. In addition, we talk about the hardware and batteries you’ll need to get your thermal camera off the ground. Thanks for the question Nir! Fly safe!
