Hello everyone ,

Im a 3DR pilot for at least 10 years . I started with the APM , moved to the Iris+ , built a cupple of drones over the years using pixhawk that i use commercially for NDVI mapping and other agriculture processes
I was able to get my hands on a 3DR solo , new in box that has never flown . From what i could tell it hasnt even its props mounted once .

What upgrades are necessary to bring it to 2022 arduCopter standards ?
i have on order:
- a BMSone and some 4s batteries .
- a new GPS unit from MRo

i Know that with the latest firmwares CubeSwap is no longer needed .

But software wise , what should i perform so i can have a safe , opperating , flying macine ?
i found solex, OpenSolo , Uploading via SCP the latest ArduCopter Firmware to the solo.

All this got confusing , thus im asking whats the 2022 way , the most up to date , way to a) install the latest arduCopter (solo does run arduCopter , right ?) b) what apps are best suited for use on a phone

and if you want to provide with any other piece of info i would be glad
