3DR Solo Quadcopter Unboxing

3DR Solo quadcopter and Radio Controller (and user Smartphone)

About the 3DR Solo

The 3DR Solo quadcopter looks more at home on the set of Battlestar Galactica than it does flying over the fjords and fields of planet Earth. However, it doesn’t just have otherworldly aesthetics and beautifully sculpted lines for show, it also showcases a vast array of impressive highlights.

The Solo has enough safety and automatic features to put a beginners mind at ease such as: 

  • Auto takeoff
  • Land and Return Home Pushbutton
  • Emergency Air Brake
  • User-friendly Controller

It also packs the power and opportunities to entice a professional:

  • Twin 1GHz integrated computers
  • Works with GoPro HERO© camera – Live HD video and control
  • Computer assisted cinematography = Pro shots from day one.

The 3DR Solo App is an innovative, feature loaded addition to the contents of the box itself. The app allows you to easily select between several different flight modes and take photos or shoot footage with a single press of the button. The incredible Orbit feature allows the Solo to automatically circle an object and film outstanding footage with no input from the pilot. Cable Cam fixes the Solo on a descending or ascending path that allows the pilot to pan and tilt until they find the perfect shot. However, the most exciting feature that the Solo boasts, is a Follow Me function that will allow almost anyone to pilot the Solo, hands free, whilst they enjoy almost any sport or activity.

The box includes the 3DR Solo quadcopter, a battery and the controller, along with a phone/ tablet holder and chargers for both the Solo and the controller. If you already have the Solo you can buy the 3DR Solo 3-axis Gimbal here as a separate item.

Alternatively, you can buy a complete package of the 3DR Solo and 3-axis stabilized gimbal from us too. And you can also find the  Solo spare battery here.

Fixed on to the body of the Solo is a specially made GoPro mount that has easy access to the built in HDMI cable. This can be replaced by the 3-axes stabilised gimbal as mentioned above. You also receive 6 x spin-on propellers that easily fit on to the Solo within seconds, a quick start guide and a starter transport case to transport your Solo between flights. Below you can see some images of these parts:

Even the cardboard inside looks professional and you get the feeling that the Solo is very secure – no chance of it getting damaged in transit.
