    troubleshoot open solo 4

    I just recently was given solo because a friend of mine got a new drone. I tried updating to open solo 4 today and everything went well on the controller side. It is now up to date. The problem is I thought the controller and solo were connected, but it appears the solo did not update properly...

    Forgotten WiFi password

    Hi, I know this is a stupid thing to have done, but I've forgotten my Solo Link WiFi password (having changed it from the default password). Grateful for advise as to how I can find it somewhere without having to do a factory/master reset of the drone. I read that the password should be...

    Almost Fly-Away Learned Something New

    So this is my first Solo and I had a great time flying in a field today. It was awesome and it kind of threw me off flying for twice as long as my DIY quads and y6. I was telling my wife about it and she said she wanted to see it fly. I new one of the batteries still had around 50% so I had just...

    RedEdge on Solo

    First I'd like to mention that the MicaSense RedEdge appears to be a very nice camera and the Solo seems to be a decent platform for it; I'm looking forward to using it for mapping meadow vegetation in a couple of weeks. But I'm having a very difficult time connecting to the wifi. The RedEdge...

    Looking for anyone selling wifi mods, parts, or cards.

    I am researching different wifi modifications and ultimately developing one that will, theoretically of course, extend the range well beyond line of sight, for proof of concept only.... and I have 3 new Solos specially purchased for this project. I also have several used for parts as well as an...

    Solo Swarm - Anyone Have any Success (or even try)?

    So, I'm a long time Mission Planner user with DIY Pixhawk multirotors. Now that I have 5 Solos, I'd really love to figure out how to swarm them (control up to 5 from a central source). I had some limited success with my DIY birds, but with the level of effort and $ invested in the DIY aircraft...

    App doesn't recognize connection

    Same story different owner. Drone and App worked well for the first 5 short flights. Then I lost "connection" and never got it back. App still wants me to connect even though the wifi appears connected. My iPhone shows a check mark next to the wifi so it appears I'm connected to the Solo...

    Amazing results yielded from the GPS mod!! Wifi mod anyone?

    I wound up tearing her down and wedging a piece of corrugated cardboard between the chip and that copper UFO paper. I didn't pick up many more satellites than usual but on 6 sats I flew out 1200ft.... Previous record was 650ft (distance). I didn't even run it out all the way, wound up hitting...

    remote transmitter antennas

    I'd like to move the transmitter's antennas roughly 20-30ft away from the transmitter body, allowing me to 1) sit in a warm car and 2) put the antennas on a mast so they can clear some nearby trees I have 800mw Mikrotik wifi cards in the transmitter and solo. I've also just ordered 2 Sunhans 3W...

    Open inquiry for this novice pilot please!!

    Hey guys, I've had my solo for about 6 months now and have been super nervous flying in some situations that may be totally unreasonable... Now this hesitation stems from low flight time and two crashes (low level impacts). I am hoping to get some good feedback from some of you who may have...

    App says that the wifi is "not connected"

    I bought my solo via an eBay auction, and when it arrived, it was still attached to the sellers wifi, to which I did not know the password to. So I did a factory reset, and I was able to connect to the controller's wifi with my iPhone. The problem now is that I need to do the pre-flight update...

    Solo Reliability?

    I'm writing this post to see if anyone else is thinking the same thing I am. If you live in the wide open spaces part of the country, I'm glad for you. If you live in an area with trees and with Wi-Fi populations I'd really like to hear what your experiences are. I live in the Pacific...

    3DR Solo tlog file storage and Mac WiFi

    How man telemetry logs does Solo give you access to? I've never seen more than 10 saved on the Solo when I actually log into the Solo's computer. I use use WinSCP to log into the remote ( When I log into the actual aircraft ( there are no tlogs. The android tablet however...

    Could a Solo mesh network to extend range be possible?

    It just occurred to me, while I was thinking about the WIFI system that the Solo uses, that it might be possible to use a strategically placed, battery powered, WIFI access point (or points) to increase the range of the Solo. You would likely have to reprogram the solo and controller to connect...

    Someone has already done? WiFi channels 12 & 13 To do this, you'll need to transfer the included reghack binary to Solo and Controller For normal modes: On both solo and Controller: 1.) Transfer the reghack to solo and controller (using scp or SFTP) 2.) Execute ./reghack...
