3DR Solo Overview

  • 1Description

Designed from the ground up as a companion to the GoPro HERO, the Solo Quadcopter with Gimbal from 3D Robotics features aerial imaging-specific flight modes including Cablecam mode and Follow Me. A quad-rotor configuration, flight stability and autonomous flying are enabled thanks to a twin computer flight control system. The flight controller relies on GPS for navigational coordinates, plus uses data from gyros, accelerators, and other sensors to keep the aircraft safely flying. The Solo includes the Solo Gimbal, a 3-axis stabilizer compatible with the a GoPro HERO3+ or HERO4 action camera.

In addition to the Solo and 3-Axis Gimbal for a GoPro HERO3+ / HERO4, this bundle includes a spare flight battery (in addition to the one included with the Solo), two spare sets of props, and a hard case with wheels to pack the quadcopter and accessories away in. For more information on the items in this bundle, please follow the links below.

3DR Solo Reviews

Solo Quadcopter with 3-Axis Gimbal, Spare Battery, Spare Props, and Hard Case with Wheels is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! The was so user friendly, stable but still technical that my father ordered one, then a business associate ordered one for his son who is an avid photographer.Very detailed setup instructions. Had three different people with three different birds up and running without a glitch. All were done individually. If you need it and call 3DR support, you get support!Wonderfull product and experience with B&H and 3DR.I'm unrelated to either company and in the boat business.BTWHey 3DR....where is the flight simulator app that was promised with this? Where is the the Apple version of the Tower autonomous flight app that I understand is excellent but only running on Android for now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I will buy again once quality improves I have been flying drones for years in aerial mapping and as camera operator for video. The concept of this drone is Solo as in being able to perform complex camera movements as a Solo operator. When it works, it does just that. Hands down the best out there. However, the problem is that you have more down time than up time. I'm on my 3rd Solo since launch of product. The first one worked ok but footage was sporadiclly shaky. After 7 flights nothing but problems and unstable footage. The GPS signal is very weak unlike competitors. Takes forever to get a replacement and support is sluggish. 3DR is in the right direction but not there yet. They need to re-develop the internal wiring which seams to be the cause of vibrations in the footage. I would not recommend this until the kinks are worked out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3DR solo Excellent when paired with the Hero 4 Black. I had an issue with the Gimble not working properly and Solo sent me a new one out no problem. I shoot weddings and plan to offer drone service as an option for outdoor events. Ensure you register obtain license with FCC. Very simple process. Excellent easy to fly drone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too Much Fun I have a couple of 'drugstore' drones, lots of fun to fly around and crash and get basic flying skills, but there's nothing like flying this. This Solo is too easy: take off, hover, fly and take pictures (with my GoPro). Stop flying and it will obediently hover in place waiting for your next command. I first used it to check the rain gutters on our second floor, faster and easier (and more fun) than using a ladder. Then I got some altitude and flew easily around our property to get a look-see. Took off across the valley about 1200 feet out (too nervous to go farther the first time)Solo was just a speck out there. Beautiful smooth video. It does everything as advertised, easier than they say it is. Even though I was a little nervous I felt like I knew what I was doing including a very soft landing. It's too easy. With a little practice it won't be too hard to get professional video results with this rig. BRAVO 3D Robotics! Too much fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In the world of UAVs it's all about the software The 3DR Solo is like to the UAV market as Tesla is to the car market. This is a product that is driven by well designed software that is constantly updated. Even before my first flight I was treated to several updates and features and the simplistic beauty of of it is done can't be matched, every single sub-system is updated over the air (pun intended)! :)The packaging is of Apple quality and the simplicity of use and helpful videos make new pilots comfortable and excited to use the product. Everything is assembled and ready to go (except the propellers) but even that is a simple tool-less process. This is my first UAV and I know I made the right choice. The only thing this does not have is the Intel RealSense technology, which is very new to drones, which allows it to not hit obstacles. The 3DR will follow terrain and adjust based on GPS data though.Lastly the bus integration with the Hero 4 cameras is the best I have seen, total and full control (and power) I forgot to put my Hero battery in the camera and the Solo powered it for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3DR Solo I love the Solo Drone and this bundle of accessories. This was the cheapest deal I have found. The only bad thing is that the controller doesn't charge the battery when it is plugged in. It takes forever to get a new one from 3DR. I am waiting on it to come in. So I only give four stars because of the controller issues.

I would love to help you, but I have yet to have any issues with mine. Other people online have told me that the customer service is amazing. I just really love the drone and have been flying for 6 months without any issues.

question

If my drone crashes, is there GPS tracking to help me find it? Does the drone float if it falls into water and is it water proof?
Asked by: Anonymous
There are logs in your controller that record the performance of your Solo. Submit a trouble ticket to tech support and they will help your sort out the situation. If you had an uncommanded fly off 3DR has coverage that can help. Solo, like almost all quads, is very susceptible to water and should never be operated in the rain. As you can easily see, the electric motor windings are completely exposed and just a little moisture can short them out. Unfortunately, if she goes into the water she will sink like a stone. I have some interesting video of the recovery of one of my first Phantom from the bottom of a river. The quad didn't make it but the GoPro, which was in a waterproof case, recorded the whole ordeal.
