An ultra-compact FLIR Boson 320 thermal camera is mounted below the Mavic Pro’s standard 4K video camera. And a separate display allows the operator to view live images from the Boson while a connected smartphone displays live video from the daylight camera.

- Modified DJI Mavic Pro foldable quadcopter
- DJI Mavic Pro foldable remote controller
- Intelligent Flight Battery
- 4K video daylight camera mounted on stabilizing 3-axis gimbal
- High performance: 40 mph top speed, 4.3-mile range, up to 27 minutes flight time, hi-def live streaming of video
- Obstacle avoidance
- Indoor flight capability
- FLIR Boson 320 thermal camera
- HawkEye Mini DVR recording system for storing thermal images
- 7-inch Diversity monitor for viewing live thermal transmissions
DJI Mavic Pro Quadcopter
Compact and foldable, the Mavic Pro weighs just over 1.6 pounds, including the battery and the thermal modifications. It can fly 21 to 27 minutes on a single charge and up to 40 mph. Mavic is extremely reliable because it has dual sensors for all of its positioning systems. It can even fly indoors to view such confines as a factory or warehouse.
Mavic Pro is smart, highly maneuverable and powerful. It can avoid obstacles, including the biggest obstacle to purchase: a tight budget. Even in this modified version for firefighters/search-and-rescue/security, Mavic Pro won’t break the bank.
The thermal Mavic Pro is a portable, affordable electronic device that can save firefighters’ lives. Fly the thermal Mavic Pro over a burning building, and the FLIR Boson 320 will display heat intensity, showing otherwise invisible hot spots in the roof or a wall. It indicates not just where firefighters should attack a blaze, but also where they should not. And with its daylight camera, it will record important video that can be used as evidence or for training.
A building collapse, an explosion or a terrorist attack can leave little but rubble — and desperate victims underneath. You can use rescue dogs, but wherein the mass of debris do you send them? Ask a thermal Mavic Pro. As it flies over the wreckage, it's Boson 320 thermal camera will detect and display the heat given off by survivors, speeding their recovery when every minute counts. It can detect victims covered by dense vegetation or woods after a plane crash, or skiers buried alive by tons of snow after an avalanche.
FLIR Boson 320 Thermal Imaging Camera
The Boson 320 long-wave infrared camera is so small that we can mount it on the Mavic, in addition to the daylight camera. It’s so light that it won’t significantly affect the Mavic Pro’s performance. And it’s so effective, you’ll wonder why nobody did this before Drone Nerds. A built-in transmitter streams the thermal imagery live at 5.8Ghz to an included Diversity 7-inch video monitor. You’ll see what the Boson sees when it sees it.
Intelligent Flight Batteries
Fly your Mavic Pro for up to 27 minutes — about 21 minutes in real-world conditions. The quick-charge 3S Intelligent Flight Battery keeps itself from overcharging and prevents damage from excessive discharging during storage. It tells how much power is left onscreen. Additional batteries and a multi-battery charging hub are available from Drone Nerds.
Mavic senses obstacles as close as 2 feet at low speeds, and as far away as 49 feet when flying as fast as 22 mph. When it senses an obstacle, Mavic Pro stops and hovers until you send a command. With vision sensors that see in three directions, you’re saved from unexpected dangers, even as high as 14 feet off the ground and when GPS signals are blocked — in dense foliage or indoors.
Flight Autonomy helps you hover precisely and land where you took off. Precision Landing senses if the landing site is uneven.
By using TapFly onscreen, send your Mavic Pro in one direction. Terrain Follow keeps your drone at a fixed height off the ground even if you’re locked onto a subject moving over uneven terrain. Return to Home, which is activated manually or automatically if the battery runs low, helps your Mavic Pro avoid obstacles while returning safely to base.
DJI Go shows onscreen what your camera sees, from as far away as 4.3 miles. You’ll know where you are, altitude, battery reserve, and what’s in front of you.
