All I've seen so far on this thing is 33MPH... maybe a setting somewhere? But I have the rates dialed up to the highest setting...
Battery was at 36 percent on return but I did a lot of screwing around out there... I actually flew back towards home for a quarter mile and remembered I didn't take a screenshot... so I flew back out to 2.5 and got the shot.
Compared to lightbridge... this thing is getting weak at 2.5miles... I bet I can get 3 out of it at he right altitude... and 4 with wifi boost on the controller.
The P3 goes 4 with just antennas and still has full bars on the signal.
Not sure how to put a percentage on that but... this Solo has range!
Best thing I can say about this weekend so far?
Solo has the best damn video stream for FPV of anything I've flown for the past few years... 720p at a perfect frame rate for the entire battery... smooth as butter... from zero feet to 13,000 feet... not one hitch or glitch or freeze or dropped frame rate. I think that says more bout the app than anything. Video rendering in the DJI Pilot app can get sketchy at times and you can monitor how it's stressing the processor to keep up... but the 3DR Solo app runs smooth as silk using a little over half the processing power.
Hopefully, if it is like the rest of their products, it will be user defined in advanced settings. But doing so may be at the expense of the warranty..
If I understand correctly, the 'Speed' setting refers to reaction time, i.e. like a novice/expert type setting. The more towards faster you move it, the faster it reacts and not as smooth.OK, now Im confused. I just clipped this from 3DR On-line support, Owners Manual
5.7 mph (2.5 m/s)
55 mph (25.5 m/s)
Maximum climb rate:
11 mph (5.0 m/s)
Maximum descent rate:
5.5 mph (2.5 m/s)
25 mph (11 m/s)
25 mph (11 m/s)
Also, under Advanced Settings there is a slider for "speed" that can only be activated by the controller.
After 100's maybe 1000's of hours testing, tweaking, etc. and such attention to detail to "get it right" I find it hard to believe that in the Owners Manual such a glaring disparity of 55mph vs. an actual 33mph could conceivably happen. I guess it could but sure would be a huge variation in execution to deliver to the marketplace. Jus' sayin'
