3D Robotics: Solo

The world's first smart drone.


Story

With full control of GoPro® cameras that deliver live-streaming HD video straight to mobile devices, Solo is the first smart drone on the market. We had an amazing “working" experience with 3DRs aero-robotic-engineering-geniuses to bring the vision of Solo to life. ASTRO’s holistic approach included designing the quad-copter and controller, along with the 3DR brand identity and product packaging systems. 

Part of our challenge in designing Solo was to develop features ensuring a user friendly and intuitive experience. So we created a heads up video display and simple user interactions. 


Because of the hazards of flight, we designed the Solo drone to stand up to the wear and tear of the elements. 
Our favorite part about this project was a no-brainer-- flying it.
