    how is your video stream working in QGC? mine is lagging alot (like 2-3 frames per second), no matter if I am running QGC in tablet or laptop, while the Tower app shows smooth video

    I just downloaded Q for the first time ever last week. Haven't had time to use it more than a few minutes. But the video stream from solo wasn't coming through. Is it supposed to be compatible with solo video? This is on Android.

    Yes you should be able to get the video from Solo in QGC, if you have the GoPro on and turn the solo and the remote on and connect to the solo wifi and open QGC app then it should automatically connect (including the video stream)

    not sure if it matters in what order you do it, probably not. But if you are having issues, try doing it in this order.

    Uninstalled Qground contro but will add it back some day. Its ROS friendly but for my flying between tower and solex, I just don't have an application for QGC

    P2P, You answered a question I had last week about Tower Applications. Excellent reply, you mentioned using Mission Planner for Geotagin images. Which Mission Planner app. in your opinion is the best to use for Geotagin.

    I see this controls different cameras. Is there a way to control (trigger) a Sony a6000 on a Solo?

    Do you know if you can plan using terrain elevation data?

    Mission Planner is a open source (free) PC program that can do everything Tower does and much more. It has a powerful tool to geo reference photos after a mission. Ideally you have MP connected to Solo during the mission, but if not you can connect later and download the logs.
    Probably plenty of YouTube videos showing how it works if you are interested.
