Anybody been able to get hold of the Iris+ upgrade? Just curious, heard that it exists but hadn't heard of anyone trying it yet.

I called 3dr to inquire and was told the IRIS + and upgrade would not go on sale until Oct. 3rd

I don’t think they started to ship the kit yet…

I’m at 11- 12 minutes of flight with my IRIS with FPV, and front mounted Brushless GoPro Gimbal …and I had hard time deciding if I should order it..

Yesterday I placed the order.

Did anyone knows exactly what motors they added, and if the ESC has been changed ?

I know that they’re T-Motor  920kv…but these come in two generations, and I was wondering if they are the older generation or the new one.

I look forward to hear first impressions… and what flight times these upgrade will add.

I'm not convinced that I will do mine right away…but remains to be decided.

I've ordered the kit.  The website suggests it won't ship until October 8th.  Some good details of what IS and IS NOT upgraded with the upgrade kit vs. purchasing the IRIS+ as a new unit.

What are the changes to the radio that allows the telemetry to display? The radio looks the same. Could there be manual steps to add it for current Iris owners?

Also for the Iris users that just are not using the tall legs and gimbal, is there any real benefit? The existing 850kV moters are OK for the plain Iris. All I see is that the new arms are 60g lighter. As for the 5100maH battery, I'm already using the $30 Zippy 5000, which fits in the existing Iris

Looks like ship date has slipped a week to the 15th. Don't like the fact that there are new motors and props. What will i do with the left over parts i will have plus spare props and motors i purchased just in case.

Good point,  I bought 2 of most of the parts, well I guess I could use the batteries for sure. I was never notified the kit was even available.  I used the link in a previous comment to order the kit , even though now it shows back ordered, guess my original $1,200.00 purchase was not noticed, oh well. Hope the kit arrives soon!

Does the upgrade kit allow for the "3PV Follow Me" feature?
What is it, actually, that allows this feature beyond software?

that is all in the software, the upgrade kit doesnt include the iris+ software.  the follow me feature is fully implimented into 3.2 which is still in beta, but should be stable release soon.

Looks like another shipment date was missed for the IRIS upgrade.  Hopefully this delay is not as long as the delay for the initial 3dr delivery. Will call in the AM to see what the story is. 

Anyone get a notice with a reason for another shipping delay? 

Curious if anyone has received the Iris+ upgrade kit. Still showing as "out of stock" on the dedicated link at 


got a notice from 3DR about missing the ship date, we'll see when  it is actually available

Even though I purchased an original Iris I am not on the mailing list for the upgrade. Please post if you find it is shipping. I struggle with giving them a cc for the order if it's not going to happen.
