3DR Solo Drone Quadcopter

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. 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.

Horrendous customer service, complete nightmare company I really hate to be writing this. The drone is well built and did a few really great flights that were easy to control and smooth. Right out of the box, the HDMI to GoPro didn’t work. All I got on the mobile app screen was a solid magenta screen instead of a live video feed. I contacted support and they never responded. I tried again and got nothing. So I couldn’t see the flight through the drone’s eyes, which meant being super conservative, as well as not getting the value the whole thing is marketed around with the GoPro.¬†

Most Regretted Purchase I’ve Ever Made “We’re here for you 24/7” all of 3DR’s promotional materials say. This is unmitigated BS. Telephone support — at any time of the day — was eliminated about a week ago (approx. 2/15/16) and the company shifted to tech support via chat and email only. Originally chat was supposedly available 7am to 12am M-F, but my most recent experience — in which I was never able to get any chat assistance whatsoever — indicates that they shut down chat around 3pm PST. That leaves email as the only route for tech support, which is clearly an unviable means for providing support for a device as sophisticated as a drone. 3DR *says* it will respond to emails within 24 hours, but they never do. So I’ve now owned a completely useless drone for two months. I’ve yet to be able to get it to fly. 3DR has been no help whatsoever, and the user groups seem to delight in mocking the inexperienced users. I had originally purchased the Solo so I could use it with my GoPro Hero, but I think I’d be better…
