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 a GoPro HERO3+ or HERO4 action camera.

This is a ready-to-fly bundle, featuring a pre-bound transmitter (radio controller) that has been styled after a video game controller for more intuitive operation. In addition to dual joysticks for flying, it features dedicated dials for operating the Solo Gimbal. In addition to the transmitter, there is a mobile app for iOS and Android devices. The app provides full control over the aircraft, gimbal, and even the GoPro itself. A mount is provided so that you can mount your smartphone directly to the transmitter.

A flight battery providing up to 25 minutes flying time as well as a charger are included. In addition, the included transmitter features its own dedicated battery.

Solo Quadcopter with 3-Axis Gimbal for GoPro HERO3+ / HERO4 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too many false reviews I'm sick of all these reviews (probably from fake accounts hired by DJI) giving this product a bad name. The drone handles smoothly and operates better than I expected. Very easy to use and very upgradable. Love the features (follow mode, cable mode, and orbit). Only problem I had was the gps signal was lost and I crashed it before I could hit the pause button. After the crash I broke a propellor but they give you extras. Everything held up really well even after a pretty hard crash. Other than that it was super easy to set up and handles great. More stable then the DJI but not as agile. Would absolutely recommend to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome drone I was reading a few of the reviews and thought I would post one as well. I did not buy my drone here but it's a great price and would have if I saw when I purchased mine, when I first started flying the drone i thought it was a little slow and what not as well, then I found in the app that the settings for my drone were set at slow so I turned it up to medium and wow what a difference in speed, I won't be taking the speed up any further for a little while till I get a few more hours of flight time in. But if you are looking for an awesome first drone make this it! Very easy to use and set up is a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Quadcopter for me This being my first-ever quadcopter I'm very pleased and impressed by the sturdiness and construction of the Solo. Doing the First Flight Update was slightly confusing at times, but it worked out fine with a little persistence. (I didn't have 4G on the iPad Mini 2 and according to the online video, you can use wifi but you have to get off Sololink Wifi and onto your device's Wifi a few times.) I researched the choice between DJI Phantom vs 3DR Solo and concluded the Solo would be my best choice for two primary reasons: The great B&H sale price in June and 3DR's Smart Shot's will make aerial videography very fun!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Do it before its too late! Its a great drone at a great price BUT there's a reason for that. This drone is no longer produced so everyone is dumping their stock. The problem is, parts will eventually be hard to find WHEN you break something if no one purchases the molds and reproduces it. That's a chance I decided to take. The drone was designed to be a modular and open platform from the start which means the possibilities are endless especially when it comes to the software. The drone isn't perfect but it can be with a few tweaks which isnt a big deal. Another plus at least in my option is it looks great and its not the standard shape like other popular drones. Si if you have a hero3/4 and are looking for a great drone at a even better price, I recommend you become part of the amazing SOLO community.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed and thankful for Phantom 4 release I was sold by the launch video last year and immediately pre-ordered the drone with a backpack, gimbal, and spare batteries. Upon receiving it, I was surprised with how long it took to connect to GPS and the shakiness of the gimbal on some shots. I also felt it was hyped up as a smart drone before it really became that smart. After 6 months with the drone, I got to fly a Phantom 3 and realized I'd gotten a bum deal. Light bridge and the faster connection for flying made a huge difference in my job. I sat in front of clients and had to apologize for the delay, even in open areas. I was even on one job and another member of the team put his Phantom 3 up in the air while I waited for mine to connect. I spent A LOT of money on my current package and am now selling to lose about half of what I paid just last summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flew perfectly out of the box My wife bought me this drone for Christmas without my knowledge. It was an awesome surprise. It is my first drone and flew perfectly the first time. I was a bit baffled that the 3 axis gimble did not include the leg extensions required to use the gimble. My wife didn't know it would be required (she didn't even know what the gimble does). I guess my suggestion would be that they be included as part of the package or that at the very least a warning be included that the extensions are essential. As it is, I am forced to use the fixed axis mount until I can get the extensions. So far I have 3 successful flights!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What are you waiting for? This is my second drone, the first was a DJI Phantom Vision 2, for which I paid almost $1500 (included two batteries). That was fun, and worked reasonably well until I crashed it several times and it was never the same. I put off replacing it for some time until I saw the Solo, which included the 3-axis gimbal, for less that a third that price. It does require me to use my Hero Black, but that also means I get 4K instead of the 1080 of the Phantom 2. This drone is absolutely amazing. It provides rock solid video, it's smooth and responsive - I just can't say enough about it. I know the company is struggling and if I need tech support it may be difficult to come by. But at this price, I'm going to buy another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right out of the box I was in the air! I am a wedding/event videographer and I wanted to add another element to my video productions and what better way than incorporating aerial footage. I own 2 GoPro Hero's and have been using them for a while so it made a whole lot of sense to go with 3DR. After I got the latest software update I was up in the air in no time. The selfie, orbit, & cable cam smart modes got me focused more on framing and filming the shot and not worry about flying. It is indeed a smart drone. I'm glad I went with the Solo!
