3DR GB11A overview

  • 1Description

Mount a GoPro HERO3+ or HERO4 action camera on your Solo quadcopter with the Solo Gimbal from 3D Robotics. The Solo Gimbal not only allows you to mount the GoPro, it also provides 3-axes of stabilization. The gimbal allows panning and tilting via controls on the Solo transmitter or with the mobile and also keeps the horizon of your shots level, unless otherwise desired.

HDMI Relay for HD Video Downlink
Unlike many systems, which use the GoPro's standard definition analog video output, the Solo features a built-in HD video transmission system. To provide the HD signal the downlink requires, an HDMI connection is integrated into the gimbal
Remote GoPro Operation
The Solo mobile app not only operates the Solo and gimbal, it can be used to control the GoPro itself. With the app you will be able to actuate recording start/stop as well as change select camera settings
Work with Solo "Smart Shots"
Not only does the gimbal enable manual control, it can be automatically moved by the flight control system when in one of the Smart Shot autonomous shooting modes. Simply hit "play" on the mobile app and Solo will fully control the gimbal for an automatic shot
GoPro Lens Hood
The included lens hood for the naked GoPro HERE is designed to reduce glare and sun flicker
Powers GoPro
A power feed from the Solo's flight battery keeps the GoPro's battery topped up for the duration of the flight. No risk of its battery dying, resulting in missed footage or a corrupted file
Easy Attachment
No soldering or installation of internal electronics is required with the Solo Gimbal. The only tool you will need is the included screwdriver

    3DR GB11A reviews

    Solo Gimbal for GoPro HERO3+ and HERO4 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait! I received the gimbal after weeks of waiting. After a 5 minute install, I was up and running. Gimbal really makes video look and feel smoother. I really enjoy be able to start recording at any time with the built in GoPro controls rather than hitting record and then flying. It took no time at all getting used to using the gimbal control on the remote. I know several others have posted they've had issues getting their gimbal and/or GoPro to work as advertised. Please be sure to take the time to get all software updates for Solo and GoPro before flying. The overall package is so easy to use that my 11 and 13 year olds love flying Solo, under supervision of course!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug it and Play The gimbal is a bolt on plug and play to the 3DR Solo. Designed well and Functional for all extreme sports cameras that have the foot print of a GoPro. Installation of gimbal is very easy. A small phillips screwdriver provided in the box makes it easy. There is one direction that should be followed that is the routing of the cables. Instructions provide routing and these instructions need to be followed. If not the result is jittery video and uneven horizon. Multiple screw on weights are included for the use of various camera models to balance the camera in the gimbal. I have found the GoPro Hero3 Black does not require weights but the GoPro hero, +, 3 White does require adding the weights.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great promise, poor execution for now. What this gimbal should do is great. What it actually did for me rendered it unusable. After waiting almost three months for it to be delivered (delay from the manufacturer, not B & H), it worked great...for about 2 minutes. Then it flopped over! Then it righted itself and worked great for a bit, the flopped over again! Several users have been having the same problem. I followed the manufacturers recommendations for repair by remounting it and making sure no internal wires were in contact with it, but the problem continued. I can't use something like this that is so unreliable in its present form, so I returned it. When 3DR gets the bugs worked out of their products, then we'll probably try their stuff again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't FLY with out it I bought the 3DR Solo as a kit that included the 3 axis gimbal so I installed the gimbal immediate and didn't even bother testing flight with the NON gimbal for the go pro. I have seen footage on youtube without gimbal, and its way too much shake for me. The gimbal does an amazing job to be some cheap now in price! My footage has yet to be unbalance and shake to the point where I could not use for customer. I shoot Wedding's and I use my 3Dr solo and Gopro Hero black 4 for those outdoor Ceremonies!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from For anyone flying a SOLO this is the gopro gimbal to get. Arrived promptly. Installation and operation a breeze. This is a great gimbal. Works well with only a limited number of GoPro Models (3+BLACK, 4Silver, 4Black). It will fly other cameras of course, and you can get feed through you smart phone. But, full control of camera is only possible with those three models. I flew a 3+ Silver and had some malfunctions (didn't save footage to sd card). I'm flying a 4Black and the control over via smart phone is flawless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's an absolute need for the Solo! This gimbal is really needed to utilize the true capabilities of the camera control from Solo controller. Without the gimbal there is no way to remotely control the gopro camera for picture taking or stop/start recording of video. Also, there's no way to take advantage of Solo's built-in camera picture/video profiles without the gimbal. It works great and is a true need to enable the picture/video recording power of the drone!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gimbal! After a couple of tweaks the 3DR Solo gimbal was amazing. After having an issue where the gimbal would fall to the side during sharp turns, and after speaking with 3DR's incredible tech support (eat your heart out DJI) they advised me to re-attach the gimbal taking care to wrap the gimbal wires way to the outside of the gimbal mechanism. After this adjustment it worked perfectly!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice feature The first gimbal that was shipped with the 3DR would not pass live video from the go pro. SO I sent it back and B&H gave me a replacement. B&H made this a very simple process! Second gimbal works great. I get a live video feed from the go pro and it keeps the go pro level while turning and you can tilt the go pro to 90 degrees to look straight down. When it works it works.
