    Upgrade or buy something else?

    My 2 cents worth (as that's about how much its worth). I prefer the 3DR.... still, as it has the expandability and modification ability - the same as a pixhawk (Ardupilot) stuff. There still is a large community out there developing and making advancements with ardupilot (and mission planner and...

    Flight times

    I had 3 batteries from original purchase in 2015. these three batteries only get 10-12 minutes. I purchased 3 new batteries a few weeks ago and get around 18 minutes from each. These batteries do not last very long and I don't do a lot of flying so over use is not the problem. I would be very...

    Interesting & worrisome finding - original GPS vs Mrobotic M8N

    Hobby grade GPS & GNSS have contained for some time (since SiRF III chipset from memory) a technology called canyon mode that tries to predict position when, as the technology suggests, you are at the bottom of canyon type situation and you don't have complete view of the entire sky (think inner...

Orbit does not work. it allows you to set centre position by pressing the A button and then the solo app starts making funny noises and won't let you start the orbit? redid compass and level calibration after update as per...

    Android Brain Trust Puzzle

    I have had troubles with the Solo App parsing GPS coordinates since its release with: 1) update at a rate faster than 3 second interval or haphazardly; 2) accurately represent where I am including when doing an orbit and you use your location as the center and the solo nearly cuts your head off...

    Firmware 1.3 Pros & Cons

    I only record to the GP not to the tablet as I want good quality video without the artefacts. You still see what the camera sees on your tablet while recording. I have not flown while recording with pal on v1.3 just tested while on the ground.

    Firmware 1.3 Pros & Cons

    I have GP 4 Black with Android. As soon as you go into settings or try to change between video or still you get error messages. Again I have not tried to record anyway as in my books if you start getting error messages then you need to stop and fix it. It works fine in NTSC and nearly all modern...
