    Solo repair after getting wet - advice needed!

    I was doing a shoot with my solo whilst it started to rain very lightly. Against my better judgement I continued to fly for a minute or two before landing without issue but afterwards I noticed the Solo would not remain powered up when I put a fresh battery in. (I press the power button, battery...

    3DR repair centre UK or Europe

    Hi I have a 3dr Iris+ and one of the motors only powers up at half throttle, I assumed this was the motor and switched it out and updated the software, unfortunately this had no effect, I guess the only other option would be the ESC however I don't know where that is or how to replace it. I...

    Bent gimbal...

    Update: I was able to straighten the yaw arm and the gimbal is working great. The tool below is NOT the correct method for straightening out the yaw arm. The arm should be completely removed from the gimbal to correct any bend or offset...See page 2 posts for further details and tools used...

    SPARE & REPLACEMENT PARTS

    Now that 3DRobotics is effectively "tits-up" and parts are no longer available through 3DR or even at third-party outlets like Best Buy, we need a forum for locating parts and components for our Solo.

    3DR repair accountability

    There doesn't seem to be a system at 3DR where repairs and replacements are tested and signed off on before shipping back to the customer. I myself received a refurb replacement that was faulty. No one had checked it out. No testing, no burn in, no actual person who signs off on the quality...
