  • Flyability Introduces Range Extender

    Flyability Introduces Range Extender
    It's no great secret that line of sight will yield the best signal. But with most use cases requiring the Flyability Elios, getting the operator to a position that they have line of sight defeats the purpose of deploying the Elios in the first place. The Flyability range extender solves this problem.
  • Zenmuse XT (Radiometric) Walkthrough and Benefits of Live View

    Zenmuse XT (Radiometric) Walkthrough and Benefits of Live View

    In this video, Robert walks us through some useful features of the Zenmuse XT Radiometric thermal camera and gimbal system.


    The temperature alert feature is great for quickly finding hot and cold spots very quickly, as they are highlighted with a red or blue dot on the screen. For on-the-go analysis of a smaller area, you can set a perimeter on the screen for a quick spot check. A separate high-temperature alert is available as well, with the ability to set a threshold for the alert that will pop up when any pixel in the frame reaches the set temperature.

    The radiometric FLIR cameras also give you the option of detailed post-flight analysis in the form of FLIR Tools+. With FLIR tools you can go back into images taken with the XT (radiometric) and do a complete analysis with each pixel giving an individual temperature reading. This option (as well as the features above) are not available with the standard Zenmuse XT, only on radiometric options.

    Having the live view on your mobile device is extremely helpful as well. We took the XT up to take a quick look at the A/C units and ended up finding some problem spots on the roof that we may not have caught otherwise. Also, certain color palettes will show what you need more easily than others, and you have the option to switch between them on the spot. In addition to that, it always helps to make sure you can see what exactly it is that you're photographing since otherwise, what's the point?

    As Robert points out in the video, it is incredibly helpful as well to have an optical camera to reference in conjunction with the thermal images to see if there is an anomaly in your image. For example, the moisture spot in the video could be a pool of water from rain or sprinklers that has yet to evaporate. In our case, there are no sprinklers nearby that reach that height, nor has it rained in quite a while, so we know that moisture is coming from elsewhere. A simple FPV camera setup on the Inspire can get you a rough view for reference, but an aircraft like the Matrice 210 can offer an HD controllable (and stabilized) image for reference in later analysis.

    Search and Rescue Drone Solutions: Z30 Highlight

    Drones have completely changed the way we approach many different industries, and as the technology gets more advanced so do their applications.

    SAR m200

    Search and Rescue

    In many ways, drones are a perfect match for the Search and Rescue (SAR) industry. The significant advances in drone technology have made them indispensable to SAR crews. Instead of expensive helicopter flights with incredibly pricey camera systems, crews can now launch their own relatively inexpensive drones that can get much closer to their target and even drop supplies or communications equipment to their rescue target.

    Step One, of course, is finding the subject and assessing the state of their well-being. In comes the Zenmuse Z30. The 30x optical zoom of the Z30 allows SAR crews to get eyes in closer than ever before without endangering the subject or their equipment. Easy assessment of the subject allows rescue crews to respond to potentially dangerous situations in a prepared and safe manner.

    Knowing the state of their subject, rescue crews can properly prioritize and plan for their rescue operation to ensure safety for all parties. If the crews can see that their subject is badly wounded, for example, they know that they need to rush to make sure that person survives. If someone is simply stuck in a spot they cannot escape on their own, rescue crews know they have the time to collect gear and plan an approach that ensures everyone's safety.

    This video from Garret Bryl shows the use of a Zenmuse Z30 for a missing persons search. His review states: "This was the first SAR training day using the Z30 working with GL and Steve using bloodhounds. The first part is following the K9 in their search. The person was hidden well and could only have been found via a thermal unit from the air. The second part was to determine the ability to locate a wandering person or someone that otherwise wants to be found. Not only was it relatively easy to find them but the Z30 also has the ability to zoom in and make a positive identification without sending in ground crew."

    As he stated, in some situations, people end up in situations in which they would only be easily spotted by a thermal camera. But once that person is located, a Zenmuse Z30 would be able to be deployed to make a positive identification and check on their physical well-being. The Z30 can also be used to monitor and guide rescue crews to their subject, and be far enough away from K9 units that the downdraft from the propellers will not interfere with their sense of smell.

    Search and Rescue Solutions

    DSLRPros offers several commercial solutions for Search and Rescue. We have a solution for different needs and budgets. For custom-tailored aerial SAR solutions, call our experts at 213.262.9436

    Inspire 1 SAR Solution

    Our Inspire 1 SAR kit is an Inspire 1 V2.0 outfitted with a Zenmuse XT camera of your choice. The package, of course, comes with the standard Inspire 1 X3 camera and gimbal system as well for optical procedures. The Zenmuse X3 camera system, however, does not offer the zoom capabilities of the Z3 or Z30 (note: Z30 is not compatible with Inspire 1). If it is within budget, we do suggest upgrading to the Z3 camera and gimbal option for its 3.5x optical zoom (and 2x digital zoom, making 7x zoom overall).

    Inspire-1-V2-Thermal-Kit

    Matrice 100 SAR Solution

    The Matrice 100 SAR kit is very similar to the Inspire 1 package but offers plenty of additional flight time with its dual-battery configuration. X3, Z3, XT cameras are viable options for your Matrice 100 just as with the Inspire 1. However, the Z30 is also compatible with the Matrice 100 system. This system does require a different mounting plate to hold the Z30, so we suggest the Z3 if you plan on switching between optical and thermal cameras.

    Matrice 210 SAR Solution

    The Matrice 210 SAR kit is truly setting the bar for all SAR solutions. Its IP43 rating means you can keep flying even if it starts to rain, and the optional dual downward gimbal configuration gives you the option to fly with both a thermal and optical together. The Matrice 210 is compatible with Zenmuse X4S, X5S, XT, and Z30. For optimal SAR functionality, we recommend the Zenmuse XT and Z30 or X5S. These combos will give you thermal imaging as well as zoom functionality (with the Z30) or incredibly clear (but no zoom) optical camera. With the Matrice 210, you can quickly switch between both feeds in real time to get exactly the image you need, when you need it.

The biggest news immediately being that the necessity for a pilot's license is no longer required in order to fly drones for commercial use. Many of the existing rules are still in place, but a new set of guidelines has been laid out.
