At first I bought the Solo with No Gimbal, but the video from my Gopro 4 Black was not steady.
Then, I decided to get the Gimbal and then the video and control improve dramatically.
Additionally, splitting up the work across two computers reduces the likelihood of mechanical failure in flight for an even safer flying experience If you need to release the controls for a moment or wish to capture a static shot, simply press the "Pause" button for the Solo to hold in a fixed hover.
When you're ready, just press "Pause" again to resume flying This flying mode limits the range and altitude the Solo can fly.
With different modes (cable cam, orbit etc.) will help you to get that Movie shot that you ever dreamed and with less budget than Hollywood. Isonly the beginning of the different programs that will be released for him and didn't mention the gadgets that will come soon like the parachute.
The only thing that I'm waiting is for the gimbal but talking about the aircraft... I did have any experience flying a drone, so I choose the 3DR Solo because its futures like return home, self return home if signal is lost. The 3DR instructional videos are very helpful and easy to follow.
The app provides full control over the aircraft, gimbal, and even the Go Pro itself.
It crashed because of bad software, and they did nothing to fix it.
Gimbal cant handle 20kmh, it shuts down in high speed and will frek you out when you think your flying full sideways..
Designed from the ground up as a companion to the Go Pro HERO, the Solo Quadcopter 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.
