3DR Reveals Solo Aerial Video Quadcopter at NAB 2015

In this episode, the Roswell Flight Test Crew visits the 3D Robotics booth at the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, to take a look at the new Solo quadcopter, specifically designed for aerial video. The Solo mounts a GoPro Hero video camera on an optional three-axis gimbal and provides a video feed via the pilot’s Android or iOS device. It also features two special flight modes – orbit and cable cam – that use autonomous control to deliver smooth, repeatable aerial camera moves. It utilizes the new Pixhawk2 flight control system, as well as a 1 GHz ARM Cortex A9 computer processor to manage its autonomous maneuvers.
