It is like a lottery with solo 4.0.1. I updated 2 birds and only one worked ok. I ended up replacing the gps and compass with a gps unit that has the compass built in as described above. It solved the issues and the units get much more satellites.

So you had a hardware problem that has nothing at all to do with Open Solo or ArduCopter...

Sounds more like your hardware wasn't working right and the old version was just not noticing it. Updating firmware does not cause hardware to fail.
That’s an interesting point. Does OS4 and/or Arducopter4.0.1 have narrower tolerances than the previous versions of each?

Same here upgraded my solo to 4.0.1 and now the compass will not calibrate. It has to be a parameter setting. Anyone have any luck ?
