Hey All!

I recently just got my solo and i am having trouble controlling the GoPro in the app. I have the normal solo app but also have the Solex app.
I am unable to start recording because the recording button and the settings button for the GoPro are grayed out. I also have Open Solo 4.0.0 installed.

My startup sequence is this:

1. I put the GoPro in the gimbal
2. I turn on the Gopro
3. I then turn on the controller
4. I connect the wifi with my phone
5. I turn on the solo last

ANY thoughts or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi

I noticed that I also cant control the gopro with Solex.
I also dont know how to access the camera selection menu in Solex. I presume it's the four horizontal lines under the record button. I cant click that, nothing happens

I SSH'd to solo and ran lsusb which just returned 1 usb hub.
Silly me hoped that the Hero port is basically USB... it's not... I guess I2C?

Is there any command to test i2c comm from Solo itself?
