As a flight simulator it leaves a lot to be desired. Real world flight dynamics do not exist. All the moves are very robotic and linear. It offers no advanced flying modes, so it doesn't really teach you how to fly. It does show you how the gimbal and sweep controls work, which is probably useful. Considering that the app is free, I honestly can't complain too much.
Good first release This will help me try things in the sim I would not want to try with my actual SOLO. I'm hoping for improvements. Units in feet...though I can see that on the controller. Smart shots. Other locations...though this is a good choice of there's only one. Good for now. Lots of room for improvement.
Nice first attempt. It gives you basic gps assisted Fly flight mode. You can operate the gimbal and flight controls. No smart shot simulations. Overall, I am glad they are meeting their promises, but get out in the real work and fly your bird. It is the best practice.
Basic Functionality The simulator gives you the chance to fly in basic gps mode only. Smart Shots or Advanced modes are not available. If you've never flown a Solo use the simulator a few times to learn the controls. However if you are already familiar with the basic controls and are looking to move to more complicated flying you'll be disappointed.
Lacks Features This is an okay app rust could be expanded to include most of the Solo features, such as cable and selfie. You can only do basic flight controls and the speed is very very slow. Please add more features.
Good on ya 3DR Not a bad first attempt! What I was really hoping for apart from the ability to simulate smart shots and flight speed etc, was the options to practice in the different advanced flight modes like sport and acro etc. Considering I crashed my first Solo on day 4 when I tried the advanced modes out, the ability to get a feel for advanced maneuvering would have been a huge cost saver, especially for a novice like me.. keep up the good work and I'm sure we will see future improvements. Cheers guys.
