Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Portable, weighting 3.3 lbs. (1.5 kg) as a standalone or 3.9 lbs. (1.8 kg) with a GoPro and Solo Gimbal.
Pro Really fast
It is really fast, the maximum that the Solo can do is 55 mph (89 km/h). Made possible by its design and four 880 kV motors.
Pro Good range
It covers a good range, 6 miles (9.5km). Makes it suitable for almost anything you might want to do with it.
Pro Good flight time
The 3DR Solo can fly up to 20 minutes or 15 minutes with payload (camera).
Con Doesn't come with a gimbal or camera
The basic pack of the drone doesn't come with a camera or gimbal.
Con Stability problems
Other users have reported that the drone may drift away even if you hit the stop button. This appears to be linked with the GPS problem.
Con GPS problems
Users have reported having GPS problems. This issue is likely due to the positioning of the module. Instead of having a small mast on top of the drone for GPS and dual GPS modules (one for US satellites and the other for Russian satellites), the single GPS is located under the battery, blocking signals from some angles.
Con Vulnerable to interference
Operates on 2.4GHz frequency, which is not ideal for drones if you fly it in a city where there is a lot of interference. Normal wifi networks use the 2.4GHz so interference occurs where there are many wifi networks.
