    So I'm aware that the normal Pixhawk 2.1 doesn't work on Solo without soldering a jumper on the board.

    Where is this jumper?

    I wasn't able to find a Green Cube in stock anywhere, so I ordered a 2.1 and am comfortable soldering- though I can't find any documentation on where on the board the jumper is.

    The 2.1 looks like this inside- are the pads on the bottom center what needs to be soldered?

    The jumper should be locatable via the attached rendering from the 3DR PixHawk documentation.
    The last revision of the Pixhawk2.0 that apparently never made it into production had the jumper and improved drive that the Pixhawk2.1/GreenCube has.
    You will need to cut the existing trace and put a solder blob to the other VCC selection.

    Could you please post a photo of that side of the board.
    Thanks in advance.

    So I can confirm that this works, Solo flys great.

    It's a small space to be working/soldering, if anyone is going to attempt it, have a steady hand!
