Hi!I’m a fairly new Solo pilot, having owned my drone for about 7 months. I purchased a copy of SidePilot because I am anticipating upgrading to OpenSolo. I flew my Solo this weekend using the stock IOS application from 3DR, it worked perfectly as it always does. I decided to try SidePilot, to get my feet wet with the new application.
I followed what I thought was the proper sequence, established communication with the Solo, completed the pre-flight checklist, “Armed” Solo and the motors spun up. It seemed as if Solo at this point was in “manual” mode, meaning I could adjust the speed of the motors using the left stick. I then changed the mode to “take off” and pushed the “take off button”... the motors immediately shut down.
Did this 4 or 5 Times, same result each time. I have missed something but I’m not sure what...
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...
When you pressed takeoff, did you enter your desired altitude in the popup then tap the 'Enter' button? Did the Solo have sufficient GPS lock? Also you must do this 'quickly' as after a few seconds if Solo notices nothing happening it will disarm itself.
