Solo Simulator for PC and MAC

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.

How to use Solo Simulator for PC and MAC

You can run all Android games and applications on your PC or MAC computer. Using a free software called Bluestacks, you don't need to purchase anything but games or applications it self if it isn't free.

  • Download Bluestacks from this link.
  • Install BlueStacks from installation file with following the on-screen instructions.
  • Once Bluestacks is installed add your Google account in it.
  • Type Solo Simulator in Search bar and install it.
Now you can use Solo Simulator on your PC or MAC.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A great start. I agree with some of the other reviews. It's a good primer for control operations. Was hoping for more of the smart shot operations. Couldn't change the battery without either having to crash it or hover until it died. Room for improvement. But a great start.

Happy... But Happy to finally get the simulator. Works fine with my Nexus 6, haven't tested it with the Nexus 9, but can't even install it on my brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Is there a compatibility list I've missed somewhere? All in all, a good step in the right direction, hoping to see all features of solo implemented in the app in the near future!

Took long enough The features in this sim are what I would have expected when the solo was first released. I say this because all you can do is fly normally, no smart shots, etc. Funny how the solo battery last significantly longer in the sim than in real life heh. I would have rated this higher if it wasn't half a year late.

Solo simulator It let users trying out the solo controller to fly the virtual solo. Let user experiences the solo without the risks of crashing it.

This is a great app to make sure you know how to fly your drone. Build the confidence needed to ensure your first flight and all flights are incident free

Good first release Works well for basic flight. Really needs settings like flight speed. Oddly the distance is in meters not feet, even though it is feet on the controller.

ดี แต่ยังขาด โหมด พิเศษ... good app but missing special mode. ขาดโหมดพิเศษของ solo ไป ซึ่งโหมดเหล่านี้จำเป็นต้องซ้อมใช้ให้คล่อง - need more solo SMART SHOTS for practice and test new idea for cinematic shot.

Useless Can't connect on a note 3, phone disables the WiFi cause the internet connection is too slow. Maybe its both Samsung and 3DR...but should be an option to force connect.

Description says it all. Very realistic but very basic. Good for practice to get a feel before going for the first flight but no challenge for experienced users.

Doesn't work Can start motors and take off to 3m but controls are unresponsive.

Good first effort. Hopefully they'll add the ability to fly around and make Cable Cams that can be used on the real Solo. :-)

This app is a great way to get you muscle memory without risking your drone. Major kudos to 3DR for releasing this free of charge.

What would make this great is MPCC control. It takes practice to get freelook right and having the ability to do that without burning through batteries would be fantastic.

I cannot get this installed on my Samsung galaxy

Solo Simulator Cannot install to Android KiKat 4.4.2 Samsung Tab3 10.1 (error code -18)

Very realistic! Will definitely help boost ones confidence before actually getting your 3DR Solo off the ground.

Smart Shots please! Works well and feels pretty real but it really needs Smart Shots! Would love the practice my shots.

Really Need to update and ad smart shots

Great Now use Google's 3D Scanned Data in your simulator!

Working Now... great trainer to build confidence with safe practice.

Good start 3DR. Great simulator. Looking forward to future updates.

Great way to practice. Great way to practice and learn how to control the Solo in a safe enviroment.
