Our department has been using the Mavic Enterprise dual for building searches and it has done a very good job, but the FLIR camera on it is just not good enough to use outdoors at altitude. The EVO II dual has a 320 and 640 version FLIR available on their dual which would make it very usable outdoors as well. But we are also concerned with connectivity while the drone is inside the building and we are flying from inside of a bearcat. We are also concerned with things like when there is fog or smoke inside the building, we have to turn the sensors off or the airplane will try to auto land as the smoke confuses it. Just wondering if anyone has has success with the EVO II?

While there are EVO 2's out there for testing with the 8k camera, I haven't seen any of the FLIR equipped units yet. I wouldn't expect to seen them until late this year considering the problem with manufacturing in China right now.

From what I have heard the FLIR firmware is not quite ready either. It seems like they actually care about making sure it is bulletproof as far as they can test. They're not even taking pre-orders yet so we better keep our ears to the rail!
