    It's looking like my Hero 3+ Silver is not going to work with my Solo. Which Newer Gopro has the least issues with the Solo. ?

    Hero 4 Silver or Black, take yer pick!
    They're getting a bit tough to find now though, and resultingly can be kinda pricey.

    Ok, things are looking up. Got a Hero 4 Silver on Craigslist and now I have video. Is there a fix for having to turn on the cam manually and not having control of the recording remotely ? Thanks guys !

    The Hero4 Silver should have full functionality through the gimbal and app with the exception of turning the camera on. You need to do that before powering up Solo.

    Master Airscrew will sell you a set of 4 for under $20 in black or orange. Otherwise, the stock props average $20 a pair.

    Was that a question? They don't come in green yet but supposedly it's on the way. I haven't used them myself but several guys on here have and report positive results.

    what exactly is happening(or not) with your 3+ Silver ?
    All I can say is that both 3+Black & 4Black work great for me.

    The Master Airscrew are great

    Less noise. Good performance
    Be careful installing. Make sure you get the CW. And CCW correct
    My first attempt resulted in s back flip of my drone and another set of props
