Solo Ultra Thin Micro HDMI Flat Ribbon Cable

US$29.90

Product Description

** CUSTOMISED AND ONLY AVAILABLE FROM RELISH3D **

[Version 3]

It is common knowledge that one of the main reasons why videos captured using Solo's gimbal has significant vibrations. While others have tried 'rerouting' the stiff HDMI cable, to 'shaving-off' the casing to 'loosen' the cable, it remains a challenge to get buttery-smooth cable-cam shots. 

At Relish3D, we have been experimenting with various options and finally decided that the only viable solution was to custom design a micro HDMI cable specifically to replace the OEM Solo HDMI cable. (Note that this procedure may void your Solo Warranty.)

Our Solo Ultra Thin Micro HDMI Flat Ribbon Cable is a replacement cable for the Solo's rigid Micro HDMI cable. This is a 2 x reinforced, ultra thin, ultra flexible Micro HDMI to Micro HDMI cable that is specifically custom designed for Solo.  It uses a custom straight Micro HDMI connector for minimal footprint and limited space gimbals. Measuring only 10cm long, it is perfectly fitted to accomodate Solo's gimbal and body connectors.

 

UPDATE: Grandpa Jake has a video reviewing the HDMI cable. He did a great job in sharing tips on how to reduce the vibration significantly. Check out his second half of the video that shows the before and after effects of the HDMI cable with moongel. You can get the Moongels here at Amazon. 

 

Note on shipping: If you are ordering from US, Canada or Mexico, we now offer shipping directly from our distribution centre in US (California State) and we will ship via USPS. For all other countries, we will continue to ship from our office in Singapore. 

Disclaimer: There are many factors that contributes to vibrations in the video and we do not assume that simply swapping the HDMI cable will eliminate 100% of the vibration. You will still need to explore the use of vibration dampeners and address the stiff data link cable connecting the motherboard to the gimbal board. Again, this may void your Solo warranty hence proceed with care.

  1. Great product, great support! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2017

    So I'm on my 3rd cable, but before I get to that, let me say it's an awesome product and severely helped my micro vibrations. There was a huge difference between the stock cable and the R3D ribbon cable for me.

    Now not the greatest part of the review, but my first one started going bad (flickering) & my second one I had 5 flights on before winter and this spring I had no video feed whatsoever... BUT, R3D replaced the cables both times and this latest one I can physically see a quality difference. So here's to more flying/filming and I HIGHLY recommend R3D products. I've also got the leg extenders which were a nice addition.

    Anyways, spend the money, get the cable. It's totally worth it and they're a great company that stands behind their products!

  2. Fixed glitchy video feed! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2017

    purchased this cable because the video feed on the control app would freeze, cut out entirely or roll/glitch out. After installation, I am no longer experiencing any issues with the video feed. This worked perfectly and it was relatively easy to install!

  3. Excellent! Works perfectly. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Apr 2017

    I'm very thankful to have found this ribbon microHDMI cable. I bought a 3DR Solo second-hand and needed a replacement HDMI cable. This was literally the only place I could find one. I found it through the install video on YouTube, which was very helpful in the installation process. Overall, great purchase. I bought an extra just in case.

  4. Perfect 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Mar 2017

    Perfect, works great. Easy to replace.

  5. Works Great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2017

    Replaced the original hdmi cable with this before my first flight so I don't know how much it helps with vibration. It is lighter than the original cord so that helps!

  6. Most have with solo 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Mar 2017

    A most have with solo if you want good steady footage. Easy to install and fast shipping for me.

  7. Great Upgrade 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Feb 2017

    Replaced the factory stiff HDMI cable with the Relish 3D ribbon cable due to live feed issues and I'm impressed with the design and flexibility. This cable, along with tightening up the HDMI connections, corrected my live feed issue. The cable also helped to reduce interference with the gimbal operation in terms of movement and vibration. A great improvement over the stock cable.

  8. Works as expected 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2017

    Cable works great. The length is forgiving enough to easily connect both ends while the gimbal is off the solo. I've only flown a few times with this cable and so far no issues have presented themselves.

    Note that this won't work with the fixed GoPro mount that comes with the solo, only the gimbal.

  9. Must have upgrade for Solo! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Dec 2016

    I have recently installed the HDMI Cable on my Solo... easy installation when done carefully and what a difference! I haven't had it up for a flight yet but the gimbal moves much more freely in its seating without its hard stock HDMI. Cable isn't 'flimsy' but is very nice and light and flexible. Tested once installed and looks great/works well. Can't wait to get it up in the air!!

  10. Worth it. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2016

    Great product and an integral part of the solution to minimizing Solo's vibration (along with moongel, prop balancing, etc).
