    The Mavic camera is not detachable, so there would be no way to attach such a camera. You could do that with an Inspire 1, but it'll cost you about $13K.

    Thermal cameras are not cheap.

    This one, unveiled this week will be much cheaper than 13k, I believe it'll be less than $4k plus an uplift for the thermal camera...

    You can buy thermal camera modules for mobile phones and then duct tape the phone to the drone. Or make a 3d printed mount. I prefer duct tape. Plenty of info out there about it. Dr google will help

    Thermal Expert Q1 connected to a C.H.I.P SBC and USB shared over WiFi, standalone package weighing about 100gr.

    Obviously has the drawback of Wi-Fi's short range and risk of interference with the aircraft's controller but could be enough for some purposes. The Mavic probably isn't the most appropriate platform to put that on though.
