When you first tried to place an order via 3DR's website, did you try reach out to them via email or chat about International shipping?"

Todd Harper replied to Todd Harper's discussion SOLO with Feiyu-Tech 3D MINI attached in 3DR SOLO
"While I have heard of that gimbal I have not used one personally so I have no experience for an opinion on it. If your good with modifying and soldering then it may be worth putting your time into. Remember though, it will void your warranty."

Todd Harper replied to Pauli Isoaho's discussion How to add more flight time to Iris+ in IRIS
"That's a tall order for IRIS. Are you looking to solely fly, shoot video, fpv?  Every action you do to increase flight time will ultimately have an effect on something else, an example is a bigger battery = increase in weight, increase the weigh =…"

Todd Harper replied to RPM's discussion Solo smart battery % at end of flight in 3DR SOLO
Christian did a great write-up on the exact this topic for the IRIS+ a few months ago. He goes over the various situations of the FS's. Give it a read, most of the info can be applied to SOLO as well.…"

Todd Harper replied to Justin H.'s discussion Elevation impact on IRIS+ flight times. in IRIS
I consistently launch from elevations around 9,000ft and sometimes from areas ranging between 10,000 to 11,000ft without indecent.
My IRIS+ carries the same basic payload as yours and I typically see flight times of 6-8min, depending on…"

Todd Harper replied to Gregg's discussion Newbie with a iris that loses power in IRIS

The powering down speed you noticed is normal. Since the IRIS+ had no props and did not lift off the ground it really has…"
