3DR Solo Quad-copter (Drone) Refurbished $189.99 - Direct from 3DR (No Tax for 49 states, plus shipping)

+13 Deal Score

This is the best price yet by $5 and is a manufacturer refurbish unit. They do charge for shipping but it was only $12 to IL in my case

(This is not a Best Buy return that was deemed resell-able by the some 18 yr old kid.)

Buying directly from 3DR will net you a drone that is in perfect condition with new props, and a new battery vs god only knows what from Best Buy.ConfusedLMAO

This price is almost laughable its so cheap compared to the original retail cost. Its really an incredible deal for a drone that is far superior to anything close to this price range currently on the market.

I cant say enough good things to my friends about this drone. Many are flying Syma X5's and 8's and think they are great (which they are for the trainee just learning to fly) but this is a whole new level in every way and still very friendly for the novice quad-copter pilot.

If this had a gimbal then it is a no brainer. Without it, it is just a nice drone.

I bought two of these from best buy and sold one. you won't find anything near the solos complexity or speed near this price. big fan of the quad but I wish it didn't rely on having a GoPro. on the flip side the GoPro is amazing quality

Agreed...add in the shipping and it's just ok, it still could have taken a good hit and you might not see the effects until much later. Their customer support for the Solo is at a bare minimum. I wonder how they will handle problems/returns??

The 3dr Solo Gimbal is made specifically for the Solo. You can fix an SJ4000 thru 6000 and other simalar cams to it but loose some fuctionality that leverages the GoPro features. Best Buy has the gimbal on clearance ATM.

The gimbal is only $48 at Best Buy. Factoring that in, this is still an excellent price and will provide more performance than anything else in the price range.

There's only one 3DR Solo gimbal that I'm aware of. $48 at Best Buy and $50 on Amazon.

What's the cheapest camera that can be used with this, other than GoPro? A GoPro4 will set you back $200, making this $400 before having to do the possible GPS upgrade and stuff.

At over a grand, this is a mistake. At 300 it was tempting, at $189.... Nice

Wonder if I should get it to track my mavic pro when I fly it so I won't lose out when i have a fly away. Haha

Not to thread crap, I bought 11 of these bundles, but my last 4 flights with this drone ended in crashes. Not sure why, they are constantly moving around without any input from the user, the GPS reception is NOT rock solid even with rev. B boards. One veered left into a building for no reason, one flew straight into the woods, one crash landed with a low battery and one flew away. The battery/flight time is NOT great on these and it gets buggy when the battery is low, many, many close calls. You can dream that it is better than a Mav Pro but it's not. I wish they had put a little more R&D into this drone to make it as great as it is touted to be or someone in the aftermarket could fix it's bugs. I still have 4 of these and will still try to work this out at the 3drpilots.com forum, hopefully. Just posting this so that buyers don't think that these drones are without any problems. Do your homework.
