    In urgent need of Thermal !

    Im in need of a Thermal for safety purposes & for Rhino Poacher patrols in South Africa, I work as a PH in South Africa & start again this year in a couple of weeks, we also help the Stock Police & Armed Response teams some nights, I had a small Flir Scout last year & it was a great help, I was hoping to get a XQ30 before now but saw in Aussie I could get one for $1000 less than NZ but when I went to Aussie last week they were out of stock & will not get any in till im back in SA .

    Just thought I would see if any one was up grading to a wireless or more powerful unit & thinking of moving there units on ?

    Cheers

    @Scout have you tried any of the UK web sites? A lot of game keepers upgrade this time of the year when the crops are high.
    Good luck on those petrols ah.

    No I haven't tried the UK sites, I would have early but time is getting short now .

    I didn't know the XQ30V Lite or XQ23 were discontinued already, maybe why no one has any ?

    Halted production is more accurate - maybe they will resurface ??

    From what I heard a few days ago - re the stopping production - I would steer clear of the Q Lite models at this point in time
    I know more - but better I not say without all facts
