    A specific date? No. But we're all ahead full now. I'm working on some commits that will fix the LEDs and notification tones now. Hoping to have that working this evening before my second beer. It's actually a lot more important than it sounds because it's the only way to know what it's thinking doing. Then I hope to finish porting over 3DR's ESC slewing protection this weekend so we can stop falling out of the sky. The home position already has a commit done from one of the developers. That will leave only the gimbal issues which still requires testing and evaluation to solve.

    What I really want is for Arducopter 3.5 to fully support the Solo when it comes out of beta. I don't know if that will happen. if this gimbal takes too long to fix, I don't think anyone wants to hold up 3.5 for everyone just for the solo. So the solo might come with 3.5.1 or something like that. Best I can tell you is "soon".

    Even before that time, I might compile a px4 file that has everything for some willing volunteers to try out :)

    @Pedels2Paddles

    What do you mean by
    "it will allow Pixahawk 2.1 solo users to safely operate master with handicap"

    I thought the problem with the esc's was not there in 2.1 Pixhawk?
    Was this a slight miss print? Did you mean "without handicap!"

    You're welcome. It's response to stick input is noticeably more nimble and crisp. It feels more like a high tech sports car rather than a high tech Ford Taurus.
