A replacement controller for the 3DR Solo Quadcopter Drone. With ergonomics inspired by popular video game controllers, the aerial photography-optimised Solo Controller feels natural even to new users. It simplifies flight and puts control of both the vehicle and the camera at your fingertips, with dedicated buttons on its face for Takeoff, Land, Return Home and Pause, in addition to two user-definable A/B buttons. On the controller's left shoulder is a paddle for fine grain tilt control; on the right shoulder are two buttons for presetting gimbal tilt positions and a knob to adjust the automatic tilt speed. Clicking the tilt paddle starts or stops recording on the GoPro and pressing both presets at the same time snaps a photo. The controller's computer powers a built-in HDMI port, making live broadcast to nearly any type of screen as simple as connecting an HDMI cable.
3DR Solo Replacement Controller
With ergonomics inspired by popular video game controllers, the Solo controller feels natural from the moment you pick it up. Along with precise flight control sticks, its face features dedicated buttons for one-touch automatic flight, including auto takeoff and land, auto return home and land, and pause.
Complete camera control
Built specifically for aerial photography, the controller allows you to shoot like a pro from day one. Easily adjust camera tilt positions and speed, instantly snap a photo or even start and stop GoPro recording during flight. All while a crystal clear HD view of the action is streamed directly to your mounted mobile device.
Built-in WiFi and HDMI
The controller’s computer powers both a WiFi hub to keep you constantly connected and a built-in HDMI port for live broadcast of your GoPro HD video feed. Now you can send live streaming HD video out to just about any screen you can imagine, all without losing or compromising the live HD feed on your mobile device.
In case you ever need it, a dedicated Pause button immediately brings Solo to a midair halt-and-hover so you can regain your bearings. The onscreen color display tells you exactly what’s going on during flight and the controller will instantly alert you if something goes wrong. The controller also doubles as Solo’s "black box": Its 1 GHz computer automatically saves valuable flight data along 500 parameters directly to its internal memory, 20 times a second.
