Solo App is the simplest way to control a drone. Enjoy crystal clear HD video to frame your shots manually, or use one of Solo’s automated Smart Shots to capture professional content effortlessly.
Solo will fly out and back capturing a stunning reveal. Set the angle and distance and Solo will get the shot automatically.
Record a series of camera positions in the air and Solo will automatically fly a smooth path between them. Use Cable Cam’s timelapse option and add dynamic movement to time lapsed shots.
Choose a 3D point on the map and Solo will precisely aim the camera wherever you fly. Use the controller to move the point in space for ultimate flexibility.
Solo will automatically fly where ever you move by precisely tracking your mobile device.
Lock onto a straight path in one tap and Solo zips along an infinite imaginary line autonomously while you freely pan and tilt the camera.
Solo will take perfectly overlapped pictures for rectilinear or spherical panorama.
