  • @RPM, thats great news! I'm also waiting for my gimbal from Great Hobbies (warehouse is only a few hours away and they've always been great), but still haven't heard nothing so far...Hopefully they didn't get shorted in the number of expected units in this shipment...

  • I just received a notification that my gimbal has shipped from Great Hobbies here in Canada. They seem to have everything Solo before BestBuy and London Drugs.

  • @Brandon, it's sad that it has to come down to a battle with support just in order to get what you paid for, but I guess some positive came out of the situation so it's not a total loss.......

    @Terry, this seems to be the case with 3DR over the past year, that in order to get anywhere with them you pretty much have to declare war on their support (not literally declaring war, but definitely putting up a good fight in order to get anywhere, or in other words bumped to a Manager), but in the end things seem to (usually) work out for the best...And glad to hear the gimbal looks to be a quality build, that is great news!........

    I also had issues with them, but in order to avoiding waisting anymore time debating  with someone from support (who may or may not have been lacking basic common sense), I moved on and bought a Phantom 3 for the time being, while my Solo sits on a closet shelf in its new box...Hopefully one day I'll get to use it....

  • I had a similar issue, sending the Solo back before having it in the air for more then a few minutes, raised a bit O hell and a manager took over my orders, received the gimbal early last week, looks very well build and sturdy unlike dji.
  • Craig, I think the reason I received the gimbal before most people is because it wasn't a typical order. I had a highly escalated issue with my Iris that was being handled by one of the managers. I kept receiving a faulty Iris+ one after another. That in addition to mutiple issues with their support, one of the managers took over my case and sent me the solo, gimbal and new go pro hero 4. If memory serves, the order was placed around July 6th.
  • @Brandon, did you order direct from 3DR or one of the release partners such as B&H? That's good news! I've read a few places that people have definitely been starting to receive them so I'm curious as to if anyone who order elsewhere then 3DR have heard anything? Thankfully I received my second battery a week after my Solo...They seem to be very vague on actually details...
  • I'm in Vegas and received my gimbal about a week and a half ago.
  • @Ray,  Yeah it would definitely be nice if they provided a bit more details then, "Gimbals have finally cleared customs and are on their way to our launch partners to fill pre orders next week"...This doesn't define which customs, as I'm sure China has their own clearances,...n'or does this answer the question which launch partners? From what I can recall there were several partner, in the U.S. it has like B&H, BestBuy (I'm not positive on this one) and perhaps another, here in Canada it was London Drugs, Great Hobbies, and then they added Best Buy Canada later on.......So are these all considered launch partners or simply the U.S. based partners included in this shipment? Or neither?......Time will tell I guess...

  • Still waiting in Texas. Ordered in May!

  • Ugh! No Gimbal, only battery. Such a tease.

4K Action Camera Wifi WiMiUS L3 2.45'' LCD Touch Screen $42 off

There is a lot to like about the WiMius L3 16MP 4K Action Cam as it's undoubtedly a worthy competitor to the GoPro at a sharp fraction of the price. It's simply amazing what they were able to do in such a tight package. It does 4k video , 60fps 1080p video, has a webcam mode which would be used on youtube if necessary, comes with a variety of different accessories like the go pro which includes the signature case and many many other cool things as well. I use a program called Bandicam I was…

WiMiUS L2 4K is an impressive affordable action camera [Review]

There are lots of affordable action cameras on the market, but not many of those deserve your attention. In their attempt to compete with upmarket products, vendors tend to focus more on specs rather than the user experience, delivering action cameras that look great on paper but do not work as well as you might expect in real life.That was the case with WiMiUS' L1, which did not live up to my expectations despite having solid components. However, with the new L2, things should be different.…

Hi all, What is the situation with 3DR Solo drone spare parts? I am in the UK and can not find propellers to buy anywhere. There are plenty of drones available (super discounted) but none of the shops have props in stock. Can anyone advise where I should order them from? ThanksMantas
