    Use Solo's GPS as Mock Location

    Hey been looking all over the internet for an answer.... I'm trying to find an app that will allow me to collect Points Lines or Polygons using the solo's gps location. So I can fly a road, being able to start and stop a line to be used in a GIS later. Or fly over a fence corner/some object and...

    Solo GPS revA on SP racing F3 flight controller

    I have a revA gps laying around that I replaced with a newer board on my solo. I am wondering what the process would be or if its even possible to use the revA gps module on a SP racing F3 flight controller or any other flight controller for that matter. I have a custom quad that would benefit...

    I am selling my 3DR Solo with GoPro Hero 4 Black and accessories. The solo has always been kept in a protective case and looks brand new. It also has the updated mRobotics GPS chip for faster satellite acquisition. This is a great drone that probably only has a couple hours of flight time on...

    OK, so I've been limited in my flight time here in the PNW, but I did manage to get a few test flights in with several different GPS modules. Clear sky, sunny day, 12 midday flights. Please note that the drones were turned on for about 10 minutes, left sitting at the launch area, turned off...

    Random thoughts and questions!

    So what is the resale market like for Pixhawks? I mean with everyone going to green cubes (ok, maybe there's still at least 2 people out there who haven't converted yet) there's got to be a surplus of stock cubes for the solo. So is anyone buying? I have some spares which I have no use for, 2...

    Experiences with low cost M8N GPS modules?

    About a week ago I installed a BN-800 GPS in my backup Solo. I thought that for under $18 it was worth experimenting with. I had hoped to get one of the V2 GPS shields from the 3DR store, but it seems they aren't available now. I ended up reusing the original one. I also created a design for a...

    GPS Upgrade, Newbie point of view

    As the newbie to the drone world and new owner of a 3DR solo in Portland OR (see, did the newbie introduction at the same time, that's multi-tasking that is!) and I thought I’d give my feedback on upgrading the GPS (just in case it helps with anyone’s decisions). Got my solo from B&H and was...

    Loosing GPS Lock.

    I took a Solo for a flight a week ago. Everything went perfect. Flew like it suppose to - did a nice orbit shot around water tower. Then hit a home button and it landed exactly where it took off. At that point I had about 50% of battery left, so I decided to fly some more. With 12 GPS...
