You might want to make a posting in this thread, and revive it. Tom did extensive testing with one of the previous models and found it lacking in its tracking ability. While I believe he concluded the unit had promise, it needed refining. Hopefully the newest generation has addressed the shortcomings.

If Soloshot3 spec is true and vertical capability improved by ~2.5 times then I am in line for new version and ready to share my experience.
However it will be available in October time frame based on Soloshot e-mail reply.

Hi,
I have been asking Soloshot team to publish video-clips with Soloshot-3 vertical capability for fast moving objects.
The very last reply still not much promising :
-----------------
Hi Andrei,

Thanks for reaching back out, and for your feedback.

We do have a couple of items lined up for vertical tracking - mostly drone and kitesurfing. I'm not sure where those activities are on the content calendar that the team has, but they are queued up for this month.

I see that your use case is mostly RC-related. I have shared this with the team as well to see if we can feet RC in the calendar.

Was there anything else I can help you with in the meantime, Andrei?
-------------------

Kites and drones are mostly hovering with not much fast vertical movement although for experienced eye it can give some information about Soloshot-3 capabilities.
I asked them again to try Soloshot-3 with simple electric RC plane.
What we see currently on YouTube with Soloshot-3 ... the objects are moving mostly horizontaly and far away from camera. Although in such video-clips the object is well centred in the frame ... it is not impressing me much as these clips are very easy tasks for Soloshot-3.

Well, let's wait until first owners can share videos from Soloshot-3, which starts shipping these days.

While I am on the current shipping time frame (has and most likely will change AGAIN!!), I am also have been in contact with the SoloShot R&D team. I am working through the NDA and approvals to do testing with large scale gass planes. As I learn more I will keep you updated...
