So I currently have the M210 V2 with the Z30 and XT2 cameras. Just looking at the specs the X2 is substantially lower quality cameras. I did briefly attend a demo by Skydio where I got some stick time but I noticed the following: distinct delay between input and aircraft response, lots of issues with live view lag, very low quality FLIR imagery. If it were not for the legislation on Florida on banning DJI from public safety I would not even consider the X2. Im looking for input from pilots who have flown the X2 for SAR and or any other public safety missions and how the X2 handled. Is the screen lag constant? is the laggy controls constant? are you able to actually use the FLIR and locate subjects in wooded areas?

Hey there, I would love to talk to someone with as much FLIR experience as you as it sounds like, and can answer all your questions 100%. Shoot me an e-mail. Right off the top they did get the FLIR Boson but they chose the 336 resolution (vs 640) and it's really bad... before you even start zooming. If you already have a Boson, and don't know about this, it's VERY helpful (the GUI download) Boson® Thermal Camera Modules | Teledyne FLIR
