    Weird issue for connecting to Mission Planner

    Just had this same error for the first time today. Resolved it by adjusting the default Windows security profile to "trust" the Solo wifi as a Public network.

    Here 3 RTK

    That all makes good sense! Keep us posted on your results.

    Here 3 RTK

    How is the Here+ working for you? I've fooled around with a number of M8P chips with Solo, and never really gotten great results, attempting to use Emlid Reach RS as a base station. I don't see the Here 3 as an upgrade- as it also has the M8P chip. Your position will be no better than the...

    3DR Solo with Sony R10C gimbal question

    So that is directly through the imx6 (not HDMI), and therefore enabled by some sort of Sitescan specific coding on the bird?

    3DR Solo with Sony R10C gimbal question

    I also just received a SiteScan gimbal from eBay. Potentially silly question: can anyone confirm that there was a video downlink in SiteScan?

    Sitescan Gimbal

    There's been someone liquidating the camera/gimbal combo on ebay recently, still would be interested in seeing if the R10C can function with Solo or if it was locked down to Sitescan only.

    GNSS U-Blox M9N - Upgrade

    It still seems like you'd be dealing with a lot of effort for a very marginal increase in performance by using the M9N. I understand that more channels (and more constellations) is "better", but why do you need 2.0m position accuracy rather than 2.5m accuracy? The acquisition time essentially...

    GNSS U-Blox M9N - Upgrade

    What are you trying to accomplish with the M9N? It is marginally better accuracy than the Neo7 from the 3dr stock module, but isn't "high accuracy" like a RTK/PPK chip. Just curious what use case you would be trying to improve. I don't recall offhand what the difference between Rev A and Rev...

    Reach, ppk/rtk for solo?

    Not exactly plug and play... I'm using it for mapping, and for some odd reason Emlid doesn't recommend using their GNSS as the primary system for navigation with Pixhawk. So I have the Reach (the original and the M2- but the M+ would be the same) tucked into the area under the Solo GPS. There...

    Reach, ppk/rtk for solo?

    I've been using the Emlid system on Solo for a couple years. Works quite well.

    Don’t buy from Pro-Tec Solutions

    I ordered from them twice, absolutely not a scam.

    Failsafe in OpenSolo

    Just an FYI that failsafe options/behavior have changed in AC4.x. I was getting very confused about failsafe options after upgrading to Opensolo 4. Basically, I'd set the usual items (continue in Auto for GCS and THR), but the Solo would continue to go to RTL on a controller disconnect...

    Sitescan Gimbal

    I suspect there was a fairly robust non-disclosure agreement about everything Sitescan related. It might make most sense to use a new gimbal controller with the frame of the Sitescan gimbal? As you mentioned, it is just a simple servo gimbal, should be straightforward to integrate a new...

    Solo Controller (Artoo) AT11A - Schematics / Pinouts

    Following this with interest. I will add a slightly off topic anecdote, that I personally wouldn't spend any effort chasing a wired ground control system link. The Solo Wifi, via Solex and stock App, has been absolutely rock solid for me. As a contrast- the Parrot Anafi with a wired...

    New to 3dr

    So the Solo with the R10C is working great for you? The first model would be convincing the crowd that you didn't buy a paperweight! Lots of folks are having a hard time getting that camera working, help them out.
