Anyone have insider knowledge as to how many Solos 3DR produced before they shut it down? Still seeing new stock at B&H but considering Best Buy was the 'official' store for 3DR (not sure about that either), they don't seem to have much of anything. The refurbished units hit sellers/third party market but it doesn't give any insight as to the total quantity produced. I'm assuming 3DR kept back some stock for warranty and for the Site Scan business, and repair shops may have parts stock, but that can't represent much.

The Forbes story in this post:
Forbes article on the downfall of 3DR

says 100,000 units built.

@jimloss - Thanks, did not remember seeing that earlier. Begs the question what the remaining flying population is now. A lot of us have multiples so it would be hard to guess.
This drone is very robust considering the capabilities and physical design. But only as good as its weakest link. Its too bad it had a bad launch with initial gimbal issues.
