Hi,Just had a chance to test a Solex (installed on June 26, 2019 + missions add-on + geo-tagging add-on) Survey mission using an Open Solo drone ( standard hardware) . It looks like the Solex app got updated on July 29, 2019.
I created 3 Way Points : 1= take-off, 2=Survey (altitude: 118.11ft, speed 24.45 mph, Gimbal Angle =0) , 3= RTL
Set Vehicle type = Drone
SetCamera = GoPro Black ( set to take a pic every 2 seconds)
Enabled terrain following.
As soon as mission started I noticed the Gimbal stayed at 90 degrees( looking forward) and speed was too low: 11 mph ( default mission speed). I ended up correcting gimbal to point down and was able to complete mission with one battery ( small area).
1-I am not sure why drone speed during the mission was not set to the speed defined under Survey and reverted to default value? Have I missed a step or a setting?
2- Will Solex control/trigger camera based on camera type, speed and altitude ( like Tower used to )?
Multi-battery missions is something I thought about for a while before building it, because it seemed like it would be really complicated. The main reason for the complexity is because I was also thinking in terms of it being a visible option for larger missions. The question then becomes "what qualifies a mission as 'larger'?" It's hard to say, and I don't know what a visible option would really do in any case. "Push this button to do something different with this mission". I don't know what such a button would do.Kelly,
I have auto-start recording enabled and it worked with non-mission type flights, but I believe I also had to start recording this time.....not 100% sure though
Let me know if it will help to take a look at the logs... or anything that might help with testing/troubleshooting.
BTW, I noticed multi-battery missions is part of the July 29 release ( thanks!) . I wonder how it works? Is this option "visible" once you select a larger area to survey? Is it based on standard battery flight time or is it dynamic ( continues data capture from the point the mission was interrupted?
Would help having more details about this issue. Is the wi-fi enabled on the device you installed Solex on? If the wi-fi is enabled on your phone/tablet and you can't find Solo's wi-fi in the list of wi-fi networks ( listed when clicking on the Solex WIFI button) then I'd suspect a problem with your Solo controller/drone.solex does not see my solo
