Are you looking to get the most out of your GoPro experience? Do you love exploring new parts of the world but find capturing breathtaking images harder than you thought? Then the 3DR Solo Drone may be just the thing you were looking for!

Solo is a smart drone that’s designed for easy flying and built to capture stunning video and photography with your GoPro camera.

One of my favorite features of the 3D Robotics Solo Drone is the smart shot modes that you can use. In Smart Shot modes, Solo can fly itself so you can shift your focus from flying the drone to the camera.

There are four Smart Shot modes that make capturing beautiful photos that much easier:

Cablecam: Lock Solo onto a virtual cable between any two points in space. Then, using just one stick on the controller, you can move Solo up and down the cable. This lets you freely pan and tilt the camera while the drone stays in steady flight. Solo can even memorize your first and last frames and pan the camera between them.

Orbit: Solo can automatically circle a subject of your choosing, keeping the camera pointed inward to capture an iconic wraparound shot. Adjust the circle’s radius to get the exact frame you want, even midflight.

Selfie: With just one touch, Solo will fly up and away, keeping the camera centered on you so the scenery around you expands in a dramatic aerial pullout shot.

Follow Me: Go completely hands-free. Solo can follow where you go, automatically keeping the camera on you to capture your every move.


Solo’s computers make flying easy for beginners and pros alike. Smooth and powerful satellite-guided flight ensures Solo’s position is always accurate, and Smart Shot modes keep Solo locked onto predetermined flight paths. It’s also got a great video game–style controller for a feel familiar to any user. Plus, the controller features one-button, automatic flight controls including take off, land and return home. And if you panic, don’t worry. The pause button lets you stop the Solo with the touch of a button.
