    Drone Down... What next

    Hey All, Had an unfortunate series of events take place yesterday in Tampa. I'm here on assignment filming some Broll of the city for a client. I shot several nice drone sequences and was filming near the Skyway bridge to finish the day. I setup on the North fishing point so I could have close...

    My solo is acting uncontrollably as if its not stabilized at random times, in this case it was right after a straight vertical take off-- it started flying way sideways and all over the place as if not stabilized without controller input, then settled down, then I continued vertical ascent above...

    Flyaway and Crash

    Yesterday I had a flyaway and crash with my Solo1(Green Cube and OpenSolo). I was coming in for a landing in my backyard while in Fly:Manual. When Solo1 was about a foot from touching down it suddenly took off quickly and I had no control. It ripped into a movie screen that I have against the...

    Lost GPS and CRASHED

    So, I fly Solo to get an aerial view of the buildings for my job. Normally I would use Tower to draw the path and send it out automatically. However, a couple of days ago the drone lost GPS almost immediately after takeoff. It went into manual as it should have, and I was able to bring it home...

    Dragonfly takes down drone...

    I kid you not. Our Phantom 3 was taken down by a dragonfly. I'll post this also to the PhantomPilots group, but it should be of interest to the 3DRPilots group, and you'll see why: Our research team is doing a study of meadows that are being restored to their former wetland condition. We...

    Solo Gimbal Spinning out of Control

    Hello, Just bought my solo a few days ago and have been flying it every chance I've had. Today on my 6th or 7th flight I came down to the ground too fast and the drone bounced off the ground fairly hard. It continued to fly fine but the gimbal was stuck pointing the camera up and to the...

    Solo Loss of power and crash with .bin file video, and MP Screenshots. Cause?

    Was using the Solo to capture some aerial footage of a wedding venue. Solo appeared to be working fine until it suddenly began losing altitude and I had zero control of the copter. In the video you can hear a faint noise just before the copter veers left and begins to descend rapidly. I...

    Solo customer Service

    I submitted a ticket and logs for my Solo back in March. All that I have been receiving is auto reply emails. All of my previous experience with 3dr customer service has been quick and helpful. Anyone have any ideas or experience recently with their "Support" team?

    Exactly what logs should I email to 3DR to see if a crash is warranty-worthy?

    Exactly what logs should I email to 3DR to see if a crash is warranty-worthy? I downloaded the DataFlash logs using Mission Planner from the crash flight and the two previous. Anything else? Should they be in any certain folder format? I was using Solex, so do I need to package them in a way...

    Hard Crash and Camera Issues

    Well, it finally happened - got distracted and flew the Solo into the ground. A couple of broken props and a bit of soft mud and it appears no worse for wear. I cleaned it up, installed new props and and flew later this afternoon. Here's the issue: I can't get the camera to work again...

    Crashed my Solo. Could someone please help reading the logs?

    I received my Best Buy Refurbished Solo yesterday. It has the Rev. B GPS board. I added the cardboard mod. It seems to pick up satellites ok, but seems to intermittently loose them. This morning I tried to fly it in the back yard. I brought it up maybe 10 feet had it loiter, and moved it around...
