Solo – 3DR's first smart drone

What are the attributes that make it smart? The top-notch design with an advanced Pixhawk 2 autopilot feature and highly intuitive dual GHz computer with one mounted on the quad copter and the other intact in the controller, connecting the complete system via a dedicated Wi-Fi signal by 3 DR Link. The Solo is designed to do unimaginable feats that make it perform with all these smart-accessories.

Supportive brain science – y analogy: The computers designed for the Solo drones are compared to the brain where these computers installed in Solo is compared to the frontal cortex of the human brain, which is the vital part of our system. All powerful functions of the Solo like the Smart Shots, HD video stream transmission and a comprehensive GoPro features are constantly monitored by the advanced computers. Here the drone’s nerve center is the autopilot system that acts like the brain stem of our Solo! The designing of Solo is done in such a way that functions are operated independently, thereby mechanical failures in flight is unlikely giving super capabilities and opportunities to our clients.

Solo – Advanced attributes and performance

Our innovations of building an intelligent drone are suited for professionals and beginners getting the feel of great shits right from day one. The simplicity of operating the copter and the advanced features it carries around for a full fledged performance of satisfying a professional with precision shots and awesome cinematography at its best. The live stream HD video streaming coupled with Smart Shots makes it one of the first drone ever made capable of giving exactly what inputs the pilot dreams of materializing with awesome apps and software to support.

Smart Shots Moments

Cablecams: A predetermined flight path is set by the pilot between two virtual cable points in space. One the flight path is set, the operator can completely focus on positioning the camera by tilting or pan freely on a decided path. All it takes is a tap on Play button and the rest is taken care off with perfection.

Orbit: The wrap-around shot captures the subject of interest by automatically circling around the target at a chosen radius and altitude giving a mind blowing perspective of the aerial shot with clear, perfect images.

Selfie: An awesome aerial selfie for the drone pilot with the camera focused on where he is based. The camera, once on the selfie mode will zoom away higher and come back for closer footage where it started. This enables the pilot to take a coordinated and superb footage of him with precision.

Follow me mode: Have your drone follow you wherever you go. A hands-free coverage that can make your drone watches every step you take!

Added cool features

A brand new ergonomic controller designed especially for aerial photography footage. Easy to use designed controller is light and fits in perfectly into your palms for a cool grip. No more heavy and big controller remotes that is difficult to carry around. The Pause button can give you an instant break on Solo-flying with the drone hovering in mid air waiting to get back in action!

You get to choose between live stream view from the drone camera and a satellite view of your shot by controlling your GoPro controller. The all-featured app for iOS and Android can efficiently monitor and change the way the controller wishes to commands.

For a stabilized video recording one has to add a Solo Gimbal, allowing full access to GoPro controls. Other features such as HD video in the mobile device and an even power to GoPro while flying are a bonus.

Adding and swapping accessories whenever needed making customized flight paths for enhanced performance by integrating new technology and features as and when they are introduced in the market. This way our Solo is built for constantly evolving and taking new avatars making it the most wanted drone on the earth.

Updating new technologies for new flight modes, features to accessories on priority, access to third-party accessories, new gimbals and accessories.

The advanced gimbal for Solo has totally unique features to house the GoPro controls for a direct in-flight access. The copter pilot needs to just click on the buttons for a dedicated drone and camera responding with accuracy and perfection in capturing images. Solo is the only drone in the world market to facilitate plug-and-play for live streaming videos in High Definition from our GoPro to the mobile device. It comes with The Frame from GoPro device that can be installed with vibration isolation, allowing a smooth uninterrupted flow of HD video stream right that instant.

Worried about flyaways or losing your copter?

Solos are for keeps and losing it is a huge loss to the owner. Our design team has always created drones that would return back with Failsafe or Return to Home options automatically bringing it to base. There are some Solo owners who may experience a crash or failure of system of their quad copter which has a computer to continuously monitor its activities. A crash or connection lost of the Solo automatically generates a service ticket. The system malfunction log explains the defect or malfunction caused for the damage of the copter or the loss of damage. A dreaded flyaway instance replaces the copter and gimbal by the company and an easy credit is given for a GoPro too!

Our product services mentioned is also completely backed by a 30-day money back guarantee and we take our products and our clientele very seriously.
