    IMG_5180.JPG Solo one is getting the upgrade, lets see how it goes,
    Got the mast yesterday, seems like it was no necessary to cut a hole
    For the harness and everything will fit thru the top hole by the mast base
    Still thinking if need a custom harness or splice and solder myself,
    The harness on the here is long enough to reach the compass plug
    Might go this route. The tricky part for me will be settting the parameter
    For the compass orientation, APM Planner is a little tricky for me
    Will se how it goes.

    Thanks, yeah T motors will be nice, Solo one has been good to me, first flight today took off with 19 satellites, super fast lock, haven't hook up the compass yet taking my time to do it right,

    Use "Tower" to change the compass orientation parameter to 0, much easier.

    I did the compass on the Here today, changed compass orientation on APM Planner from 38 to 0, did a compass calibration on solo App and all good, did 3 flights, took off with 19 sats in seconds
    It goes right to Fly hardly any waiting for satellites.
    Ended splicing the leg compass, you need to cut the wire 10cm from the plug( I cut too short and had to add) and the here harness cut right from the plug. I follow Speatuk wiring instructions

    The compass side was tricky
    But not to worrie, Here Orange- green solo compass pin 2
    Here yellow- white Solo compass pin 3.

    I You do everything right when When Solo boots HERE's LEDs
    Will light up, that's a good feeling. Now, do not use epoxy to
    Glue the mast to the cover, it will crack loose, only the best 3M tape, clean surface with alcohol for better adherence, The least you want is the mast to come loose doring flight, thanks averybody for the help

    Why is that mast so big? Other than maybe it needs to be that big in order to make the 3d printed design strong enough?

    One of the cheap foldable masts like this one?

    I looks big on images, but actually is not, I have the one you are talking about
    And choose to install the IMP one, is more robust, cable is no exposed and more robust. I reccomend it.
