"Anyone hear anything on the GPS RevB.? Been having issues with rather long sat acquisition times, and am looking to resolve this issue. Perhaps someone can direct me where we can purchase the newer model of GPS? Or even maybe someone from 3DR who ha…"

"@Philip, great news, so where can I go purchase this plug n play optical flow that the firmware will recognize? Is there a link, or possibly a photo of the module? 
The optical flow was also flown in the 3dr booth at NAB last year, but alas we still…"

"Has anyone attempted to get a vision positioning system going on the solo yet? Perhaps an inspire 1 or phantom 3 module for now until a solo specific one is released? Dji has been running them for over a year now.
The added safety benefits when gps…"

"Anyone heard any news on the optical flow sensor (vision sensor) for the Solo? 
It would be nice to get more stability and safety in some locations surrounded by taller vegetation, such as creeks, rivers, rapids, small waterfalls, under difficult to…"

"@Philip, then please explain why on the back of the gimbal box it clearly states and I quote "Compatible with GoPro Hero3+, and Hero4" and does not state only with Hero4, however there is limited function for hero3+ (basically so minimal to the poin…"

"@Ray, I'm not sure, I can't speak on behalf of any other company, as I've never had to deal with them just yet... Although I didn't have to wait for a gimbal on my P3P so wasn't really an issue with regards to that aspect......

Anyone try the new u…"

"@Dennis,
I think its safe to say that if there is one thing 3DR is good at its being untruthful (which is rather sad really), and they're also highly skilled (depending on how look at it) at continuously making false claims...Hope you finally get yo…"

"@Philip so consumers (not 3DR employees who work on the unit) could buy one at NAB also?
People have also been seen in the OpenROV video operating a "real" Trident, but that doesn't mean we can go out and buy one...because it's not finished....
and…"

"@Ray, B&H does most certainly have gimbals in stock now!!! However they seem to be on some holiday until Thursday? Hopefully this is a sign that GreatHobbies and others will be next...
It would seem that 3DR may perhaps not understand what "False Ad…"

"@Ray, and like Justin said even he was getting some in this week in Australia, which wasn't even part of the launch partnerships (ironically though 3DR recently expanded to Australia according to an article on suav), which were companies solely base…"

"Some GREAT news today courtesy of 3DR, Great Hobbies now has no clue when they will be filling my gimbal order....
While I shouldn't be surprised at this point considering, but (perhaps even foolish of me) I am a little, simply because Great Hobbies…"

"@Justin, I own both the Solo and P3P. I find they really aren't in comparison. I've always been a 3DR supporter owning from X8's to Y6's I've built, to even the Iris+ and a basic Quad. Half of the time gps on the 3dr Solo takes time to gain signal,…"

"@Ray, Yeah I've yet to hear anything either...although I gave up on 3dr a while ago and picked a P3P (my first DJI product, since I've always stayed clear from them and Phantoms are very cookie cutter in design) to use while 3DR overcomes its learni…"

"@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…"

"@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…"

"@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 h…"
