Saw this little guy in an article today. FLIR just landed a contract with the US Army for these...Pretty cool. Would love to hear some takes and comments about this.

Looks like a good piece of kit, especially for recce guys. Seems like thermal products are becoming more mainstream, with the army adopting the AN/PSQ-20B ENVG as well as with the release of the Steiner clip on thermal imager at shot show. Would be interesting to see how this plays out in the field.

1st pic is ENVG, 2nd pic is the Steiner product + PVS-14

Does it have a noise signature? The ones I've seen do make a bit of noise.
So based on the videos I've seen of FLIR showcasing the drone the earlier models were a bit noisy, they were bout as loud as the typical commercial drone people get from a bestbuy. The black hornet 3 model was supposed to have a more quite noise signature.
