3D Robotics


When we announced earlier this year that we were going to be working with Sony to bring out the R10C, which has the best sensor in the industry, we also said we were going to do more than just strap a great camera on a Solo. And we did: we've created a custom gimbal and API interface with the R10C that allows Solo Site Scan to not only automatically control every aspect of the camera in real time during flight, but also automatically transfer full-resolution (20 megapixel) images to the cloud wirelessly in near real-time, via our new iOS app.  It's out now!

  • so lets flash the firmware!

  • Developer

    It would be useful  to provide a data sheet and technical specifications of the camera. I do not see any on the 3DR website as of writing this comment. ( Link to Google Search term ).

  • Hi Chris,

    I see the price for Solo with RC10 and 1 year of Site Scan is $12,200.00.

    What is the annual renewal price for Site Scan?

    Looks like a very pro package, but I suspect that other software interfaces at far lower prices will eventually displace very expensive software interface option.

    AutoDesk Fusion 360 which is possibly the preeminent 3D CAD package is priced at $300.00 per year for full commercial use.

    By comparison Site Scan is primarily an interface to other programs and appears to cost an arm and a leg.

    I believe the new market now opened up with 107 will produce very high quality software interfaces at much lower prices within a year.

    So enjoy your momentary lead.

    Just my prediction.

    Best Regards,


  • Cool, glad to see you've finally got this out there.  I've been promoting these cameras since 2013, just too bad they're all discontinued.


    So, will the UMC-R10C be available to everybody?  A while ago I think you said it was 3DR specific, but now I see Kespry's new drone has it too?

    Now, when you say "Best sensor in the industry", you're only comparing to small quadcopters right?  There's people flying around with the a7RII at 42MP. I've got a Nikon D810 on a heli with pretty serious glass on it. 

    Unrelated, but, how can I get the Rev B Solo GPS I won in the last T3 contest?
