I wrote about Solo, the fascinating new drone from 3D Robotics.
Whether or not there’s space for three players in the consumer drone market or not, 3DR isn’t content to remain in third place. The Guinnmeister may not want to talk about his days at DJI — about the fact that the Solo, had he stayed at the company, would have been the Phantom 3 that was announced last week — but there's no doubt that he wants to win. "We’re an order of magnitude less well known than our bigger competitor," he says. "But I think that’s all gonna change really soon." He notes that Solo is launching in 10 countries and will be available at thousands of big-box retail locations, featured in giant kiosks with flight simulators. "The world is about to know who 3DR is."
