We love our Solos

In fact we have 3 of them in our fleet now.

Under 2 kg fully loaded, these rugged little craft fit easily into a backpack weighing well under 10 kg, even with all the extra gear needed for a shoot. 

We can hike into the most remote spots and use the sophisticated flight control software to set up a complex automated flight, be it a survey or a "take" that a director can have done over and over, knowing the track will be exactly the same each time. 

That particular ability has been dubbed a "cable shot" in a nod to the way filmmakers set up shots like that in the past.

But it is more like (cable x crane)2. Take a look at some of what has been done with Solo in Iceland .
