We are a group of FPV enthusiasts, working in a small company in Austria that is specialized in electronics and software development. Some years ago, while flying, a hunter asked us, if we have thermal vision on our drones. Every year numerous fawns die because of mowing operations which could be detected previously.

Long story short: We have developed the InEL IR-Cam for analog FPV drones. Based on FPGA technology it merges visible images with thermal images in real-time. It is suitable for any drone from 3 inch up to large 10 inch builds and matches the needs a pilot has to fly accurately.

To test and integrate the system to the FPV hobby we used several setups. A year ago we focused on a INAV build with the Rekon 6 Mini Long Range 6" Frame for best usage of a thermal camera on a FPV drone. Unfortunately this frame is not produced anymore.

Our highlights:

  • InEL IR-Cam - mixed thermal FPV solution
  • Robust 1-axis gimbal based on the included servo
  • Custom 4S lithium-ion battery (5000mAh) which leads to fly time up to 25 minutes.
  • M10 GPS Module
  • Beeper
  • Headlights

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
