Are you an experienced flier or newcomer to the world of drones? Naturally, you\u2019d want the best drone for GoPro. It\u2019s possible the 3DR Solo Drone falls into that category. In fact, it doesn\u2019t have a camera, but rather a cradle for a compatible GoPro. It\u2019s almost like it was built to pair with one!\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - 3DR Solo Drone\r\nWith a well-designed controller, the 3DR Solo Drone excels at being a great option for fledgling drone fliers, and yet provides performance that reaches and sometimes matches that of expensive drones.\r\n\r\nSpeed & Power\r\nIn order to take full advantage of the power and speed of the 3DR Solo Drone, you\u2019ll need plenty of open space. Once you\u2019ve done that, you\u2019ll get to watch as the 3DR takes off and maxes out its speed at 55mph. And that pairs wonderfully with its max distance and battery life of up to 25 minutes.\r\nRange & Durability\r\nHere\u2019s why: its maximum range is about 1.5km. That\u2019s three times the distance of the Altair Aerial Blackhawk\u2019s maximum distance, but the Altair has better durability, using metal as opposed to plastic for its body.\r\nCamera\r\nThe 3DR Solo Drone doesn\u2019t come with a camera, but has a cradle for supporting GoPros. Unfortunately, image stability isn\u2019t the greatest. Even with light winds, it\u2019ll constantly be touch-and-go. The DJI Phantom 2, however, uses a 3-axis gimbal to circumvent that.\r\nFeatures\r\nOn the flip-side, there\u2019s a handful of flight modes packaged inside the 3DR Solo Drone. You get Orbit, giving it a path to fly in a radius; Follow Me mode has the drone follow above you; ; a Return Home button; Selfie mode is self-explanatory; and Cable Cam mode gives you control over the camera while the drone stays put or on a path. Most importantly, open source code allows for others to create software for the 3DR Solo Drone.\r\nValue\r\nThe biggest letdown is the lack of a camera. The Yuneec Q500, for example, comes with a 4K camera, but costs an extra $120. But if you already have a compatible GoPro camera, it\u2019s a moot point. Either way, newcomers and fliers with a bit of experience will find the 3DR Solo Drone to be easily accessible, especially the controller.\r\n3DR Solo Drone Wrap Up\r\nThe 3DR Solo Drone finds itself right in the middle\u2014easy enough for beginners, yet still valuable to experienced fliers, too. Its max distance and speed are phenomenal at this price, and the open source code adds extra value for those wanting to write software. It\u2019s best to take it out on quiet days, just for better stability.
