Small FLIR camera options?
So does anyone have any info on a small FLIR camera? I see several out there for $1200 or so that are a monocle type and have video out. Granted, not sure how good they are but figure getting just a bare camera without a built in display should make it cheaper right?
Oh, and several on here;
I see some removed from BMW's but they are really expensive as well.
Or this one, with NTSC or PAL RCA output.

I have a BMW camera if you're interested, however they are not the same product as the FLIR PathFindIR.
The BMW camera needs to be coded to a BMW controller in order to output video whereas the PathFindIR just needs power and video hooked up.
There's a PathFindIR on ebay right now, I'd buy it myself but it requires an export license to get it out of the US and it would be less hassle for me to just buy one this side of the Atlantic.
Ebay item number for the one currently for sale is #261050282615

the problem with the pathfinder is it is really wide FOV and low resolution...
the Tau series has the interchangable lenses to get the right FOV for the Alt you are flying at.
the price is a lot more but i dont think a backup camera is really not going to give you good results.
interested in seeing what you come up with.
I have been interested in something similar

Sorry I just re read the post above. I didn't use the PathFinder it was the TAU
I put them in a project I did for NASA they used them to spot Geo thermal hot spots also connected it to a switch so they could switch from day light to thermal it worked very well. They take some tuning with the included software to get them to work right

If anyone's still looking to try out the FLIR pathfinder, their is a similar version called the first mate available on ebay:
Best part about this one is they ship internationally . Still out of my price range though, even before duty! lol
