Hello Solo Pilots:

One of our fellow Solo pilots (@just_bruce) suffered a devastating house fire recently. He lost a lot to the fire, but managed to recover some of his fire and smoke damaged Solo inventory. This inventory was destroyed by the smoke and heat.

@just_bruce offered these damaged items free of charge for anyone to pick up from his hometown.

I was in need for some parts for a project that I'm working on and don't live far from @just_bruce. After meeting with @just_bruce, I now have the complete damaged inventory and will distribute parts from this inventory, including shipping to Solo pilots who don't live in our area. Now @just_bruce can stay focused on getting his life back together and still help keep our Solos flying.

These fire/smoke damaged parts are being offered free of charge. Free local pick-up, or I can ship for a packing fee and cost of shipping. I live in a NorthWest suburb of Chicago.

There will be no refunds or exchanges as you are not paying for the parts - only the packing and shipping. Reminder: these parts were in a house fire and received fire and smoke damage. I will do my best to evaluate and share condition of each part prior to shipping, but there is absolutely no guaranty or warranty.

As @just_bruce stated in his original post: "Acceptance and/or use of any/all of these items is At Your Own Risk. Every item was exposed to a house fire"

Please Private Message me by using the "Start conversation" option to request availability and exact condition of any parts that you may need.

April 22 update:
All parts have been distributed - no more parts are available

Hi, I am interested in a set of OEM props, A set of Master Air Screw Props, and a fixed GoPro mount as I just found my 3DR at a yard sale with a couple chipped props (it flies okay), and the gimbal which isn't compatible with my Hero 7 Black and while I may modify it, I want an easier solution for the time being. I'm new to this platform but have been flying a Yuneec Typhoon H for years. I like the Solo so far especially the controller. I'd be fine with whatever shipping method you go with, I am guessing the parts I could use could be light enough for 1st Class but please let me know if this is possible.
Thanks, Charlie
