    DVR, but you will need to get a cable made to go with it (as with any scope and external DVR). Lumenier DX600 DVR - Digital Video Recorder for FPV

    I don't think you will find any rechargeable batteries that will work for you as they don't have enough juice.

    Brian, does that use the same cable as the Armasight MDVR or the Ultimate Night vision MDVR? They look the same.

    I actually got a display drone pro for $305. Thermal is out of my price range for now. So none of the rechargeable batteries will work. That sucks lol the armasight battery pack is 350

    I don't know. I never used the Armasight DVR. However, if they are the same size, then I bet it will work.

    I hope it's the same cable that would be much easier

    That $350 seems high but will pay for itself if you use your scope much. For the other option you need someone with some electrical knowledge. I have a custom cord that is a combo USB power plug and video. I use the Ankor rechargable batteries and they work awesome.

    I don’t make them. Had it made by someone that knew what they were doing.

    I take it the cable combines a USB connector/cable with a 8 pin connector used for the Armasight with a video output as well. In the picture the are two different cables but could be combined into one.

    Yes, my cable is basically those two combined. I may have the pin schematic around if you need it, lemme know.

    I can sell you a NEW one that will mount on the side of your FLIR . I have the same scope.I have a cable for that and an extra DVR I got when I bought my scope. I ended up with 2 DVR setups.
    $200.00 NEW to you . I am in Houston.

    It works but it's not very good at under 25 yards
