3Dr Solo Review - Specs Together With Everything Y'all Postulate To Know

 It has many features similar to the Phantom  3DR SOLO Review - Specs in addition to Everything y'all Need to Know

 The 3DR (Robotics) Solo is extremely functional, yet slow to use. It has many features similar to the Phantom three but instead of using a built-in camera, it uses the GoPro Hero 4. This agency that y'all withdraw hold the might to select the photographic television set camera off in addition to utilisation it for whatever y'all want. The biggest deviation betwixt the 3DR Solo in addition to almost whatsoever other ready-to-fly photographic television set camera drone is that it’s modular/upgradable but however slow to use.

3DR SOLO - Design

 Compared to some quadcopters, the Solo has a to a greater extent than purposeful - almost armed forces - aspect nearly it. It's roughly the same size every bit a DJI Phantom 3 and too has self-tightening props which are quick to unscrew for easier transport.
 And similar the Dji Phantom three Advanced in addition to Professional, the Solo comes amongst a smart controller that volition withdraw hold an iPad mini, giving y'all a large display for composing shots.
 The controller takes sure enough cues from gamepads in addition to has large, slow to utilisation buttons including an obvious 'FLY' push clitoris which launches the aeroplane into the air when held downwardly in addition to a 'return to home' push clitoris that brings the Solo dorsum to y'all - handy if y'all lose sight of it.

3DR SOLO Battery Life in addition to Charge Time

 As for the battery, 3DR equipped this badboy amongst a rechargeable 5,200 mAh 14.8Vdc lithium ion battery, which allegedly gives it 25 minutes of flying fourth dimension without the camera, in addition to nearly twenty minutes amongst it. In our tests, nosotros flora that this 20-minute gauge is genuinely a fleck little if y'all don’t wing the drone rattling hard.

 We managed to kicking the bucket on our fully-loaded Solo inward the air for nearly 22 minutes spell keeping it at simply a manifestly ‘ol hover, but when y'all wing amongst a fleck to a greater extent than gusto, y'all tin hold off to teach anywhere from fifteen to xviii minutes of flying time.

 After that, it takes roughly 1 hr in addition to 35 minutes to recharge each battery — then nosotros highly recommend buying a few of them if y'all conception to utilisation Solo for whatsoever form of serious videography.

3DR Solo Photos & Video

 The Solo cannot select photos in addition to video without an added device. Instead, it industrial plant amongst a GoPro camera, which connects to a command cable in addition to an HDMI cable that feeds the video dorsum to the drone in addition to the controlling app.
 This allows the Solo to command the GoPro iv in addition to modify settings. The older GoPro Hero three doesn't teach the same plane of control, but the drone tin however halt in addition to start video recording on the camera.
 The resolution in addition to frame charge per unit of measurement of these videos depends on the type of GoPro y'all use, but amongst a GoPro iv Hero Black, I could shoot 4K video at lx frames per second. GoPro iv users too tin command the resolution in addition to frame charge per unit of measurement of the video from the app.

 The gimbal holds the photographic television set camera steadily inward place, in addition to allows the photographic television set camera to movement independently, pointing left or correct in addition to upward in addition to down. The video nosotros shot was superior to what nosotros got amongst the DJI Phantom 3, every bit the Solo-shot footage showed none of the occasional glitches in addition to racket that nosotros saw from DJI’s drone.

 Solo is too equipped amongst an opened upward accessory bay, which allows users to attach aftermarket hardware onto the drone every bit well. To survive fair, in that location aren’t genuinely whatsoever software or hardware upgrades available correct at nowadays (unless y'all construct 1 yourself), but fifty-fifty so, the Solo scores high marks for upgradability.

 This is arguably 1 of the most “future proof” drones on the marketplace correct now, which gives it a huge leg upward on the competition.

Flying the 3DR Solo

"Advanced Flight Modes"

 Solo includes 5 advanced flying modes: FLY:Manual, Stabilize, Acro, Sport, in addition to Drift. Enable these advanced flying modes only if you are an extremely experienced operator comfortable flying drones without autopilot assistance. Without the proper skill, using advanced flying modes inevitably leads to crashes.


Fly:Manual vogue is a version of criterion flying without GPS lock. In Fly:Manual, the throttle stick controls height the same way every bit criterion flying (Fly mode). However, Fly:Manual includes no GPS positioning then that, when y'all unloose the correct stick, Solo volition non concur its position; it volition drift according to air current weather in addition to existing momentum. When flying inward Fly:Manual, brand constant adjustment to the correct stick to command Solo’s seat in addition to utilisation the left stick to maintain Solo’s orientation.
Stabilize vogue provides total manual command without autopilot assistance. In stabilize, the coil in addition to pitch angles are monitored in addition to regulated then that Solo returns to plane when y'all unloose the correct stick. The throttle stick controls might in addition to acceleration directly; it does non gibe to altitude. Stabilize requires fine-tuned command of both the left in addition to correct sticks to wing Solo. Stabilize does non involve GPS lock.
Drift vogue requires GPS lock in addition to provides a plane-like flying experience. Drift is ideal for navigating Solo using the video feed. This is known every bit first-person persuasion (FPV) in addition to provides an immersive flying experience. In Drift, Solo combines roll, pitch, in addition to yaw onto the controller’s correct stick. To navigate Solo inward Drift, movement the correct stick to initiate a coordinated plough inward that direction. Releasing the correct stick causes Solo to drift to a halt over a two-second period. Solo does non automatically command height inward Drift, in addition to requires constant adjustments to the throttle stick when flying inward Drift.


Acro is the most advanced of Solo’s flying modes. It provides unrestricted command over Solo’s coil in addition to pitch angles. Acro is intended for performing aerial acrobatics, flips, in addition to maneuvers requiring extreme angles. No height or seat assistance is available inward Acro, then survive prepared to brand constant adjustment to both sticks. Acro is a copter-frame oriented mode, pregnant that, inward Acro, Solo e'er responds to controls relative to its ain orientation. Acro does non involve GPS lock.
 Sport vogue inward a modified version of Acro that includes height assistance in addition to earth-frame orientation. With height assistance, the throttle stick behaves the same inward Sport every bit it does inward criterion flying (Fly mode). Earth-frame orientation differs from copter-frame orientation inward that the management of yaw rotation is inward relation to the footing instead of inward relation to the copter itself. For example, if Solo is pitched forrad inward Sport vogue in addition to left yaw is applied, Solo maintains the same pitch angle in addition to rotate around the vertical axis. This differs from Acro’s copter-frame orientation, inward which, inward the same situation, Solo performs a cartwheel. Sport does non involve GPS lock.
3DR SOLO  Price
 For a express time, Amazon has the 3DR Solo drone for $259.99 shipped (plus tax), a toll that includes non exclusively a 3-axis gimbal, but too a spare battery in addition to ii extra sets of propellers.
 Let me position this inward some perspective. The Solo originally sold for $1,399(!) without the gimbal, though it at nowadays runs $700. Spare batteries however listing for $150, though y'all tin uncovering them around $100 if y'all aspect hard. So it would however survive pretty incredible if this was simply the Solo for $259.99, but the gimbal in addition to extra battery are worth nearly $350 all past times themselves.
