I'm a new owner with a new in the box Solo.
The new/old batteries had about 50% charge when first checked and put on charger. Both batteries seemed
to take a charge OK, the problem is one will run the Solo for approx 5 minuter and the other 10 minutes.
Since there is no replacement original batteries what are the best options to keep the Solo in the air, I have seen
some battery mods in 3DRPilots. I can fab and solder and do not mind modifying the existing battery pack.
I think it is a great Quad and a shame they are no longer made or supported.

Thank you

Personally I think the board developped on the forum, the BMS One, and the battery mod which uses the stock BMS are all good options.

I wonder if anyone who is stuck at home during all this would maybe model up a 3D printable case for any or all of these that would 'click in' to the standard slot.....

take a look at madhacker.org and if you like the 3DR Solo as I then try a couple of the universal BMSONE .. I have two on order to try out and can't wait to put the battery BMS mod into the air... Happy flying
