"I ordered mine on April 13 from DSLRpros - 3DR's online store wasn't even selling it yet, but it directed me to DSLRpros (or B&H). So I'm a little surprised to see folks who ordered their gimbals as late as June 4th, a month and…"

"Me too. This has been a test of patience, that's for sure. I ordered back in May expecting to have it in time for a September trip, now I'm wondering if that's even going to happen. Hope the B&H preorders go out at the same time."

Another Solo gimbal update -- now shipping!

Hi Everyone -- here's a big (and good!) status update on the Solo gimbal.The gimbal production pilot is finished and mass production has begun! This means units will be leaving the factory this week. A software update will be timed to go out soon with a variety of updates, and more software updates will follow quickly on the heels of gimbals getting into customers’ hands. That should happen in all likelihood the week of 8/24. (Why can’t we predict this in-hand date exactly? Gimbals are released…See More

"Thank you... Per what I've heard on such gimbals, they are automatically connected to battery. Hopefully ours too?"

"I can't understand the complaining myself.  I don't ever remember of a company at least keeping me informed of the status of a product.  Kudos from me."

"Yes. Combining the battery and the gimbal, is the only realistic way to add mass to the camera without adding weight to the copter."

"My 2 cents: I find that integrating gimbal mount and battery plate helps a lot."

"DJI make great products and 3DR have their work cut out for them to compete in their market, given the headstart that DJI have.  I get the feeling the Solo was rushed out to try and take some of the thunder away from the p3 launch and to keep…"

"@John - sorry. Never meant to suggest the Phantom 3 was perfect. I just meant when doing AP and flying gently, the reports are it delivers very consistent footage and is generational improvement on the previous model. DJI have been working this…"

"I agree with John, in some situation also the PH3 fail, but with balanced propellers and different damper the jello is absent.The problem o the propellers in the video there's only if you are flying in ATTI, where the quad takes the maximum…"

"P3 still has vibration induced rolling shutter jello in the video, during difficult conditions. I.e. bright sunlight and ascent/descent or fast forward flight maneuvers that cause strain on the propellers."
