Deal Details

Last Edited by wuzzy October 6, 2016 at 11:34 AM
The 3DR deal keeps getting better - this was 399 a couple of weeks back.

Comes with drone, controller, gopro gimbal, extra battery, extra propellers.

linky [bestbuy.com]

True, 3DR has restructured and seems to be abandoning the consumer market - but it's still a great piece of technology for a really low price.

I was also able to use price protection when BB lowered the price.

I have been building quadcopters / drones for years and I am very happy with my Solo.

Enjoy!

great deal on 3DR Solo Drone PLUS free accessories!
Saving $420
Included Free Accessories:

3DR - Solo Gimbal - Black
3D Robotics Gimbal for Solo Drones: This stabilizing, 3-axis gimbal for the 3DR Solo drone gives you unprecedented remote control over your compatible GoPro action camera (sold separately). Rotate and tilt the camera, start and stop recording, take photos and adjust camera settings — all while your drone is up to a half mile away. Plus, the gimbal charges your camera in flight so you never miss a shot.

3DR - Solo Smart Rechargeable Battery - Black

3D Robotics Battery for Solo Drones: Instead of waiting for your lone battery to recharge, get back to flying right away with this rechargeable battery for Solo drones. The battery can power your drone for up to 25 minutes with no camera attached, or 20 minutes carrying a camera.

3DR - Propellers for 3DR Solo Drones (2-Pack) - Black

3D Robotics Propellers for Solo Drones: Buy this set of replacement propellers before you need them so you can get back to flying as soon as you damage or lose a propeller. The 1-piece design of these propellers keeps them secure during flight, self-tightening so you can install them in an instant and return to in-air fun.

Wow the price on this sure dropped fast. I almost got this instead of my 2nd phantom when it was about 1200.

Nice! I have two (I bought the Amazon sale a month or so back with backpack) but was looking into buying spare parts. I couldn't buy the individual quad parts for less than this bundle!

Thanks!

This is a good deal. with the new DJI Mavic at $1000 and the Karma with less features at $799... this is killer. The gimbal and extra battery is sweet. Buying one on the way home. Thanks OP

I bought mine when the price was $399 also, on 9/25/2016. I called Best Buy just now, got my refund of $20 + tax, with absolutely no issue at all.

After flying my Solo drone several times (this is my first drone), I have been completely happy with it! I did the GPS mod with the cardboard (I never tried it without the mod, so not sure mine had the issue or not, but I just went ahead and did it) and it has never taken over 60 seconds to acquire enough satelites for flight. It is very easy to control, the app has synced perfectly with my iPad mini and Samsung cell phone, and my GoPro hero 4+ Silver works great. I think this is one of the better electronics purchases I have made in a while.

Great price, for a great drone!! If this drops to $299 eventually, I will get a second one, just to have the additional 2 batteries and charger alone, not even counting all of the spare parts and controller you'd have!

I bought one when they were $399 (I got my $20 price match + tax refunded a few minutes ago) and this is a very nice drone! I have zero complaints so far, after several flights.

If it happens to drop into the $299 price range, I will buy a second one just for the spare batteries, charger, etc....

You are absolutely correct. Amazon is $289 for drone only. Best Buy has a way better value going, and you get the extras, plus free 2-day shipping! You have to pay tax, so that's about the only downfall, but it's not too bad on $379....

Is the panning smooth on this? I find the panning on my Phantom 3 Pro to be jerky.
