Hi guys, like many people I gave up on my solo since 3DR stopped maintaining it. I finally took the courage and time to install open solo 4. Installation went smoothly (or so I think), I did it with sidepilot as I'm on iOS. I did have to use my son's android tablet and buy solex on it because sidepilot would not let me calibrate, which solex did.

Anyway, I tried to get off the ground but all I get is a 2 tone sound. Any idea what this could be?

A few things:

- system seems ready. Controller is paired to solo, I have 8 GPS, app is paired to the wifi. Controller tells me to press and hold fly to start motors, but like I said nothing happens
- I have 2 blue lights in the back, one red one green in the front
- I tried both on sidepilot and solex, same sound
- I'm currently trying to fix the lens on my gopro so there's no camera connected to the solo. Maybe that's the issue but surely it can't be and we can fly the drone without a camera?

Thanks for your help!

(of course I'll answer all questions about details I probably missed!)
