To be clear you don't HAVE to. It is perfectly possible and acceptable to fly a 3DR Solo without any app connected. If you want add-on functionality such as is available in Solex or SidePilot then you will indeed have to shell out.

Or learn to use Mission Planner to interface with the bird. Or purchase an older phone or tablet which the 3DR app will still run on.

You have options, my friend. Options, choices, and decisions.

How do you bypass the initial start up and update without the app. I'm fine without it. I just can't bypass it

You don't. You need to do the pre-flight update, and you can do so with the 3DR Solo app. It's free. It will not work until you do so.

The app is very old and doesn't work well (or at all) on the latest versions of Android and iOS. Likely what you're experiencing.

You would have to go straight to Open Solo 4 using Solex. The link is in my signature with instructions and guides. I don't generally suggest it for a brand new user that's never even gotten it working to begin with, but it does work.
