Solo has had a big week. The platform keeps advancing at a pretty incredible pace, so I’d like to take a moment to key you in on a few of the bigger stories.

Solo App Version 1.3: GoPro Control

Comprehensive GoPro control has arrived in the Solo App! In addition to other feature improvements, version 1.3 brings you in-flight access to GoPro camera settings. Now you can use your Solo App to adjust settings on your HERO 3+ Black, HERO 4 Silver and HERO 4 Black while you’re flying. More updates included, too — check out our blog for all the details.

Real Time Flight Zone Safety Information

This Monday 3DR announced an industry first: We’re working with AirMap, an airspace information provider, to deliver fly zone safety information right in the Solo App, available to you in real time. You’ll know if you’re clear to fly, and you can find out where to go if you’re not. We want to make our drones as safe as they are easy, and this collaboration gives us a new channel to educate our users. We’ll be launching the integration later this year.

PC Mag: Hands-On With The 3DR Solo

Check out this solid and thorough Solo review from Jim Fisher at PC Mag. Supplemented with his own Solo footage, taken the first time he’d ever put it in the air.

Thanks for your time here, and the continued support! We’ll be announcing more features in the upcoming weeks, so keep an eye out.
