Take Advantage of Smart Shot Modes
In Smart Shot modes, Solo can fly itself so you can shift your focus from flying the drone to the camera.
Cablecam: Lock Solo onto a virtual cable between any two points in space. Then, using just one stick on the controller, you can move Solo up and down the cable. This lets you freely pan and tilt the camera while the drone stays in steady flight. Solo can even memorize your first and last frames and pan the camera between them.
Orbit: Solo can automatically circle a subject of your choosing, keeping the camera pointed inward to capture an iconic wraparound shot. Adjust the circle's radius to get the exact frame you want, even midflight.
Selfie: With just one touch, Solo will fly up and away, keeping the camera centered on you so the scenery around you expands in a dramatic aerial pullout shot.
Follow Me: Go completely hands-free. Solo can follow where you go, automatically keeping the camera on you to capture your every move.
More Cool Features
Enjoy an ergonomic controller built specifically for aerial photography. Its video game–style design breaks from the clunky and complicated RC tradition, so it feels familiar, even to new pilots. And in keeping with the video game theme, the controller even has a pause button that lets you stop Solo midflight any time.
Download a free full-featured mobile app for both iOS and Android. Choose between a live view from the camera and a satellite view of your selected shot. Even control your GoPro, change how the controller responds to commands, and change the color of Solo's LED lights directly from the app on your smart device.
Easy to Control
Solo's computers make flying easy for beginners and pros alike. Smooth and powerful satellite-guided flight ensures Solo's position is always accurate, and Smart Shot modes keep Solo locked onto predetermined flight paths. It's also got a great video game–style controller for a feel familiar to any user. Plus, the controller features one-button, automatic flight controls including take off, land and return home. And if you panic, don't worry. The pause button lets you stop the Solo with the touch of a button.
Can Solo Carry a GoPro?
Solo is built to maximize the GoPro experience. The gimbal* design offers direct in-flight access to the GoPro controls. With just a click, you can start and stop recording, and snap the exact photos you want during your flight. Solo is also equipped to stream live HD video from your GoPro directly to your mobile device. It even comes with the GoPro frame, so you can start getting great video right away.Shop for 3DR Solo Drone and Accessories
