Default Flir ptq136

anyone with FLIR connections, or anyone at all had hands on experience with this unit yet? I would think mounting this to a helmet would be a great scanner for coyotes. After detecting a heat signature with this unit, then you could pop up the gun with the thermal scope.

I've got one, and have just now got it mounted to a helmet. The unit is very compact and lightweight but the battery life is short, so an external battery is almost a requirement. TNVC has a nice setup for a battery, which can mount to a pic rail on helmet.

Mounting options for the unit itself are limited. The Armasight Swing Arm #172 is what you'll need to fit the PTQ136 to a dovetail NVG mount. The #172 swing arm I received required some material removed, so that it would fit the Wilcox L4G24 I'm using. Hopefully FLIR gets to work on something better, with regard to NVG mounting options.

My plan is to eventually use a RQE bridge, and fit a PVS-14 alongside.
