Hello Vu,

I wanted to personally thank you for your help with my new IRIS+. I had recently purchased it from Adam at Aeroworks Productions and he contacted you this morning regarding the GPS issue I am having with it.

Customer service contacted me and a new IRIS+ is on the way.

I do a lot of aerial filming and photography and the IRIS+ is exactly what I need.

I look forward to being a part of the IRIS group and sharing my experience with it.

Again, thank you very much for help this morning. It is greatly appreciated.

Hi Todd,

I'm sorry about the experience you had, but we stand by our products and I want to make sure you are happy with your decision to be a 3DR customer.

Please let me know if there's anything else I can do.

Hello Mr. Tran, I am having a few difficulties with some of the Iri+ settings. So i was trying to configure the fat shark Trinity head tracker system via the  fpvlab website.


and I thought that the tx that was part of the Iris bundle was a turnigy 9xr, even though its says fs- th9x on the front of the tx. So I tried to follow the instructions via the website for the turngy beleiving thats what brand this was. However Im also see some frsky modules on there. My overall point is, i think i messed upa setting or turned off my rtl switch on my tx. The iris will not rtl at all. also tried the follow me today with no sucess i followed the instructional video from 3dr. i was able to get the iris to elevate up and down and land but could not follow or track the mavlink, i use a samsung s5. 

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Kevin

So if I order a new solo from 3dr how long will it take?

Hello Vu,

I emailed you and got a response, but nothing after the first replay.  I saw your post garaunteeing "Anyone who purchases a Solo before July 15th will get a free battery."  And bought one from Best Buy on July 14th with that specifically in mind.  When I picked it up  in the store was out of batteries and couldn't order one without charging me.  I took the Solo and started to deal with the problem immediately.  

Best Buy originally wouldn't help and I called 3DR, who called Best Buy.  Best Buy eventually offered me store credit, and 3DR (John) also offered me the battery when they came in.  Since they were backordered and  I just wanted the battery, .I took John's offer rather than Best Buy's thinking that would be the quickest route.  I kept pinging 3DR since mid July, and was told to have patience.  In the interim, I also ordered a "non free" battery.  It came, and I contacted 3DR for the free one.  

I was NOW told then (now months later) that I actually wouldn't get the battery after all because the Best Buy promostion ran out  on July 10th.

Vu...You didn't say "Anyone will get a free battery except those that purchase at Best Buy"   or "Anyone purchasing Solo by July 15th, execept for Best Buy which is July 10th" and I acted on those words you did say specifically purchasing the Solo inside the deadline you imposed.   To be told (now that I can no longer return the Solo) that I will not get the $150 battery (efffectively increasing the price by that amount)  is unfair, as you specifically said otherwise.  And yet, that is what I am repeatedly being told by 3DR staff.  

$150 is nothing to sneeze at, but it is also the principle.  I am hoping your word means something, and hoping you will do the right thing by rectifying this situation, by getting me the free battery I was promised.


Thank You
