3D Robotics


If you got a chance to see the big 3DR area at NAB in Las Vegas last week, you'll have seen the new cameras and accessories for Solo first-hand (along with the new software features such as sense-and-avoid and smart rewind announced earlier). But here's a quick recap:

The new hardware:

The Sony UMC-R10C (above) for 3DR’s Site Scan enterprise solution. Available for preorder this summer.

Capture ultra-high resolution images with the gimballed Sony UMC-R10C. The large APS-C image sensor allows for exceptional low-light and low-noise performance. Automatically trigger 20MP stills that are ideal for high-resolution inspections and photorealistic georeferenced 2D and 3D models.


Kodak PixPro SP360 4K 360 cameras. An immersive 360-degree VR camera from Kodak, Made for Solo with custom stitching software. It ships this summer, either as a bundle with the vibration-isolated hard mount, or, if you have or buy the cameras separately, with the hard mount alone.

As if Solo wasn’t cool enough.

  • Record 4k immersive 360 VR video from the air
  • Vibration-isolated attachments for two SP360 4k action cameras
  • Wearable remote control for synched recording
  • State-of-the-art post-production stitching software customized for Solo
  • Ships this summer

A gimbal for the Flir Vue and the Flir Vue Pro IR cameras from RHP International.

Thermal imaging is here!

  • Active 3-axis stabilized gimbal system
  • Supports Flir Vue and Vue Pro thermal cmaeras
  • Pan & tilt control from 3DR controller

And lastly, some safety accessories from PolarPro: Prop guards and bright front/back LED lights, all Made for Solo.

PolarPro’s prop guards for Solo add an extra element of protection to your drone. They slip onto each Solo arm, with a retaining clip that locks them in place. Prop guards won’t prevent all crashes; however, they’re a great way to reduce the risk of damaging your drone.

The 3DR Solo LED lights from PolarPro securely mount to Solo for increased visibility while flying. The headlights are white and the taillights are red to allow pilots to determine their drone’s orientation in low light or at a distance.

  • This is really taken a big leap. So many features we have been expecting since a long time. I wonder how much all the addons will affect the flight time. If all works out well I think solo will be a drone every survey company.
  • Amazing, great to see the solo starting to fulfil it's potential.

  • Very impressive, open up new market by leading in this field.

  • Cool tether. :)

  • Great summary and pictures.

  • Really impressive lineup of useful, high quality options.
