At this price($399), I normally would jump in and grab a few. However, knowing where 3DR is heading, I have stocked up enough spare parts to build few more Iris if I have to. Also with the price drop of phantom 3, I kind of moving back to DJI. Therefore I will save the fund and wait for 3DR to unload Solo.

Good job, Steve.  I picked one up, too.  I have only one other Iris+ so I am one crash away from being grounded.  Good to have backup and spares going forward.

Comment by Steve Foster on March 15, 2016 at 4:54am

Ray, thanks for the tip. I ordered one, and they only showed two left! Now I own 4 Iris+, 2 still sealed in box! Hell of a deal, especially when you consider what just the Pixhawk goes for.

Just a heads up...  B&H has a special on remaining Iris+ for $399.  Might not be a bad idea to pick one up for spares if you intend to stay with Iris for awhile.  Parts seem to be getting harder to find.

Armen, I was kind of forced into a DIY frame when the IRIS got stuck in a tree and while trying to free it plummeted 60ft breaking 2 arms and blowing up a motor. It took some time to get the ESC to fire to the proper motors. I finally got it to hover last night. Next to get a full flight in once it's not 20 below.

I am trying to add a discovery buzzer to my Iris+, it is a receiver type, I am very new to the hobby. I have done many searches to find out how. I don't understand. how to program the transmitter for the switch I want to use and the receiver channel I have it on. 

If I could get some help I would be greatly appreciated

Set my Iris + up for Mapping. Completed a trial at a local Golf Course and it went really well.
