    Greencube and Mission Planner

    Hello, I use my 3DR solo with a recently and successfully upgraded greencube and I use Mission Planner as my primary GCS software. When I connect to the solo, it says that there is an update for ArduCopter 3.5.5 and I then 'updated' my Open Solo version to 3.0.0, yet the message still shows. I...

    Keep losing controller connection

    Hi guys, This is my first post on the blog. I am the owner of a 3dr solo since 2 months already and was happy until this problem happened: I was flying around 80m (260 ft) high when the solo lost the connection. It started to come back to the starting point, as always, but when "landed", the...

    Controller Won't Shut Off After Update

    Gimbal problems with update 2.4.0

    Pending a response from 3DR I'll reserve my documented disgust with this drone. Latest problem is loss of gimbal control and subsequent Hero Black overheat/shutdown. GoPro rep says the external power source (from Solo via gimbal) should be 5VN1A. Not sure if the most recent update is at fault...

    Update problems

    After the update to 1.3, my Solo has been flying better and smoother. BUT- the wifi feed from the GoPro to my iPad mini has become terrible. It breaks up and lags badly even at short distances of 200-300 ft. Sometimes the video won't record to the iPad at all. The video straight from the GoPro...

    Heads Up, for anyone using A Nexus 5-6 or 7

    OK, Android 6.0 "Marshmallow" rolling out as i type. Don't know if Solo Apps working 100% with the new OS. Check before you fly. Nexus 5-6 or 7, may be other devices also.

    Gimbal still at version 1.1.4

    Just noticed after the 1.2.0 firmware update that the gimbal is still showing 1.1.4 in the app. Does this mean that the gimbal firmware was not updated? Or does this represent a gimbal update with it on a completely different version number?
