Recently redesigned to incorporate a 10x fixed focus lens system and COLOR high res OLED viewfinder.



Note - It could take awhile to save up the $$$ coin $$$ for this one = ~2k US dollars.

I am not sure about fixed focus given some of the problems of other brands with fixed focus sights that haven't been completely in focus, or not completely in focus at all normal distances.

10x? That would be a bugger to use inside of 50 yards, especially on moving targets. I have enough issues with just 3x at closer distances, LOL.

The DP's have had a very nice sight image. I'm sorta with DNS here, 10X is an awful lot for the distance most folks shoot at night here. Probably very workable for foxing in the UK however. The cost is a bit steep also...

DNS - I haven't put my hands on one yet but I believe there is a parralax adjustment (top knob) to assist with focus.

DFW - I don't know about foxing or ratting, I'm trying to cover the 500x500 yard wheaat field, I have other digital scopes for 50 yards and in.

What do yall think of the new look?

Like the new look Ben. I had two main issues with the DP, cost and reliability. I believe they have addressed reliability...now if they could work on cost. grin Otherwise, I think they make nice stuff.

I generally don't carry two scopes to the blind for long and short range. My luck is that I would carry the 10X and out pops something at 50 yards and I can't see anything but nose hairs... rofl

I have $ 32.68 currently in my "fun money" jar so I'd expect to buy one when the price comes down in 2016 smile

Unless somebody wants to send me a unit to demo and report back on here............

I visited the Armasight booth at SHOT and met with Dmitry and Gary concerning the color 10x Drone Pro, here are some photos of the included and optional accessories for the digital scope

Digital needs IR and the included Illuminator looks and feels robust




The scope itself is solid in construction and sports a quality display screen tuned and synced to a color (daytime) sensor, a filter is used to ensure consistent performance and coloration. Viewing on the floor of the show won't tell the full story but the motion and flow of the image was very natural



Note the dial at the base of the lens, this is the focus for the system and I found that it turned smooth and effortlessly, if your accustomed to digital you'll understand that you have to adjust focus often dependent upon range to target and turning a ring at the base of the front lens can cause you to move your rifle as you torque left or right. This type of adjustment had a tactile feel and no movement of the scope.

OPTIONAL accessories.

Digital love to eat batteries so Armasight has thoughtfully laid out a dual 18650 extended battery module that also has a pass through cable (RCA) for a video output if you are recording the hunt on an external DVR



A DVR solution is also available which can act as a secondary external power supply in a pinch, no viewing screen however a status light will tell you that it is recording



I was very impressed with this revision of the Drone Pro and I have asked to field test one in the Spring.

For additional pricing or information check out the Armasight website or give the guys a call, they are very helpful and passionate about night vision.

I like the looks of this unit. I would be curious to see how it performs against the Pulsar N550A/N750 lineup.

The DP has typically required more IR than the Pulsar. The OLED color screen on the DP will be awesome. Did you get a price Ben? I'm betting over two grand...and 10X is a bit much for me.

They have always been Armasight fans over there. It just never caught on over here. Pricing was/is an issue, but it appears the reliability issues of the past may have been addressed. I like the size and feel of the DP and Zeus lines.
