The Eye gimbal is easy to use. Just plug it in and use advanced functions via the standard DJI Go app.
Be in control!
The Eye gimbal was designed specifically for FLIR VUE and VUE Pro cameras. It is based on the foundations of innovative coding that ACR Systems has been developing since the second generation of their gimbals. It not only provides perfect stabilization, but also full control over FLIR cameras.
Full integration with DJI drones, seamless configuration of camera, FLIR camera control and simple recording. The only system that allows you to change FLIR settings via the DJI GO app, like Color palettes and Scene (AGC).
Operating an enterprise drone with an infrared camera is an involved process, but the DREN Eye Gimbal simplifies it with more complete gimbal and camera control through the Remote Controller.
The Eye Gimbal employs technology developed by ACR systems and software that makes it work seamlessly with DJI programs and the aircraft. These technologies not only smooth the gimbal’s performance, but also make its control more ergonomic. With the Eye Gimbal mounted on a DJI Inspire 1 professional-level quadcopter and equipped with a FLIR camera, the pilot or videographer can control important gimbal and camera functions—including gimbal movement—right through the DJI Go flight app.
Enterprise users will derive more benefits from aerial infrared imagery. Firefighters will search for hidden dangers more readily and save lives. Police will track suspects and conduct nighttime surveillance more efficiently. Search and rescue teams will save time in critical situations. Security will cover more ground faster, with more detailed records. Industrial inspectors can zoom in more easily for closer looks at hard-to-reach infrastructure without endangering personnel, who remain on the ground.

Quality Construction, International Pedigree
The Eye Gimbal springs from European design and parts manufacture. Its mechanics and electronics include European ACR Systems technologies. The manufacturer, DREN Robotics, engineers and produces automated products. Assembly is done in the United States.
Precision fit and durability go hand-in-hand with the Eye Gimbal’s aircraft-grade aluminum structure.
Quick Response, Smooth Performance
Enabling the DREN Eye Gimbal to perform so quickly and smoothly are ACR Systems technologies that are incorporated into the motorized gimbal. ACR has a track record for designing and building professional-level, high-performance handheld gimbals. Lighting-quick response of the 3-axis gimbal results from ACR’s 32-bit processors. Smooth operation of the motors springs from ACR’s digital encoding.
Gimbal and Camera Controls Through DJI Go
DREN Eye Gimbal’s onscreen control through DJI Go brings all the mechanical and programming technology together. You do not need an extra, separate video display for the Eye Gimbal. All of the Eye Gimbal’s readouts and controls appear within the normal DJI Go control screen on the monitor linked to your Inspire Remote Controller.
With a FLIR VUE Pro camera mounted on an Eye Gimbal, you can use onscreen controls to:
- Adjust the color palette for infrared images. Instantly identify hot and cold spots, and gradients.
- Set scenes (AGC).
- Tilt or pan by dragging a finger on-screen.
- Record still or moving imagery with one button.
- Zoom 1x, 2x or 4x while the quadcopter I flying by using a simple two-finger pinching motion on the screen of any device linked to the gimbal and FLIR camera.
- Turn ActiveTrack on and off.
DJI Aircraft Compatibility
The Eye is compatible with the DJI Inspire 1, a powerful enterprise-class quadcopter that accepts interchangeable cameras and gimbals. It can be equipped with a range of high-definition video cameras or with FLIR VUE Pro infrared cameras, any of which can mount to the DREN Eye gimbal. The Eye gimbal attaches to the Inspire 1 with an X3 mounting plate.
The DJI Inspire 1 is a Ready-To-Fly quadcopter that can fly up to 50 mph with a maximum flight time of 22 minutes. Its modular design allows quick removal of the gimbal and camera for customization. It ships with a remote controller. A second, optional controller can be added in a master/slave arrangement: one controller for the pilot, the other for the camera operator. It flies precisely outdoors with GPS and indoors with visual positioning. The retracting landing gear on the Inspire 1 allow for a 360-degree unimpeded view from whatever camera is mounted, as long as the gimbal has that capability, which is built into the Eye Gimbal.
An Eye Gimbal is under development for the DJI Matrice 200 enterprise drone, a quadcopter that ships without a gimbal and camera, leaving the choice of those accessories to the buyer.
