      6. Would an X8 configuration (using Ycables from Solo's 4 ESC signal ports) be worthwhile? I'm going to start out with 4 motors, but I'd prefer to be able to step up to 8 in the future.

      Sorry to be so long winded but I'd appreciate the help.

        Thanks for the information and well-wishes. I should have all of the parts that I don't have already by next weekend and I'll get started as soon as they arrive.
        I'll probably have another question or 12 during the build process, so, I may have to bug you again, if thats okay with you.

        Here are a couple of extra questions now.
        How do you have your landing gear set-up? My assumption would be the camera trigger button but you know what you get when you assume.
        Also; How much room is there between the top and bottom plates, I'd love to put that 4in1 esc in there but it's pretty chunky, so, I'm not getting my hopes up.

      4. Were you able to retain all of the Solo functions and do you still have the full telemetry including the battery info on the controller and Solex?

      5. My plan is to start out using 4 XPS 1000 kv motors, 13x7 props and an EMax 30 amp 4in1 Esc. Do you think that would suffice?

        You can retain full telemetry, and solo functions yes, as far as KV that depends on what you want to do? Do you want a skyburner or a lower kv filming platform? I used 600 KV motors on my build.

        I ordered some Ebay special 750 kv pancakes (https://goo.gl/K8uych) to start with and I'll adjust fire from there depending on performance.

      1. How much more does the Tarot frame weigh than the factory Solo body? Did your flight times suffer much?

      2. Would it be possible to fit 2 Solo batteries side by side on the top plate like you have the one now?

      3. Do you think that dual Batteries in parallel would add enough flight time, or would the weight offset the added capacity?

        They weigh about the same the tarot frame with landing gear is a bit heavier, You could fit two batteries side by side yes, I thought about doing this myself but went another route, Not sure of flight time perhaps you would gain a minute or two.

      XevetS;
      I hope you don't mind, but I fully intend to copy your Solo-to-Tarot conversion, since that is a frame I've been wanting to build something on for a while and I'd eventually like to have the ability to carry a DSLR on a Solo.
      I have a few questions for you first though.

        Don't mind at all

      Hi I saw you bought a solo off ebay for $79. You stated that you reset the Pixhawk and the solo computer as well as updated the firmware. Can you tell me how to reset the pixhawk and computer. Please email me at lookin48197@yahoo.com.
      Thanks

        there are plenty of threads on how to reset the solo, but to reset the pixhawk remove the gimbal and cover there is a button inside the solo called sswt, turn off solo hold the sswt button down now start solo and hold the button until you here the start up tone it will sound differently. this will reset the pixhawk. give it some time to rebbot. Now do a search on how to reset the solo..... good luck
