I’ve never flown a drone before. With the 3D Robotics Solo controller in hand, I was nervous about crashing the drone or getting it tangled in some power lines. But I didn’t have to worry because the 3DR Solo basically flies itself.
3D Robotics wanted to make capturing epic video and photos a breeze for the uninitiated. To achieve this, the company gave its Solo drone the ability to have both its camera and flight automated, though you can still fly manually if you want. Even in manual mode, the drone is easy to control for newbies.
