Hi,

I have just purchased my first drone, Everything went well until I turned on the controler to be informed I had stick control issue. I found a potential fix on Youtube using terminal programe on my Mac. I am able to enter all info until I get to the password where terminal will jot allow me to type anything into the terminal. Aslo what is the password, I tried to copy the passowrd on the youtube video buy it would be nice to know where to find this info.

thanks

I had to do the same thing. On the Mac, using terminal, the password will not display as you are typing it. This is the email I followed from 3DR support.


Hi,

Thank you for contacting 3DR Technical Support.
The new update better detect when the sticks or gimbal paddle do not hit the proper limits which could potentially cause issues in flight.
To fix this issue you will need to run a stick calibration; I made a how to video on this, check it out here:

...or for macOS:

The written instructions can be found in the video descriptions.


Best Regards,

Hi Steve, thnaks for getting back to me, if this is the last resort what other options might there be. Thanks
By all mean, Proceed with procedure.
If not done correctly, then you may have to redo procedure.
All x1Dials, x2paddles & x2sticks needs to be done before exiting the SHH program.

Goog luck
Hope it fix's the error your seeing

Thank for the help, all good now with the stick control issue. Was excited to get fly but now showing level needs to be calibrated, go to solo app to do so.
I can’t seem to find this on the app although I am showing an option SOLO SETTINGS but this is greyed our saying not connected but I am showing connected to solo on the 3DR controller.

You need to connect your phone/tablet to the drone WiFi.

Thanks for the quick response, first flight was successful.

The only issue was that my Gopro was not working. Can I turn on gopro from solo app, are there any links on the best way to work with your Gopro with the Solo, Thanks Again
