    Ask 10 people if they like to eat doughnuts. 9 will say yes, one will say no. You can decide which group you wish to fall in.

    You don't need your phone or iPad to fly Solo. All you need is the controller.
    If you need to see video, just run Mission Planner with gstreamer installed, and you can overlay the HUD data over the video stream.
    Or just buy a cheap Android tablet.

    Oh, and since 3DR doesn't allow users to register Solos anymore, it has no way to know all the user's email addresses.

    I had a problem with my Go Pro and just got it replaced, so I was not following this issue. When I launched everything I could get all the controls to work but I have no visual feed to see what I am recording. I have removed and reinstalled the app but I still have the same issue. Any ideas?

    to Georg Kenner. Your Problem has no relation to the posted one, since 3DR has released a fix for iOS10.3. Check the connection of the hdmi cable and gimbal. I did have the same problem with my very first solo though and by doing something awkward could fix the problem. I connected the GoPro to the GoPro wifi first with my iPhone and of course got a videofeed. Then I started my solo app and connected it with the solo .Miraculously, I suddenly had the video feed that I was trying to desperately get by other means ( no idea though why this worked since establishing a connection with the solo wifi forces the gopro wifi to be terminated) . With my new solo ( was exchanged by 3DR after crashing and sending in the log files- the best service I had ever experienced) getting no signal is solved by turning cam off and on again and restarting solo app.

    Andreas: Thank you for the advise. I have tried that and still no video feed. I have all gimbal and app controls just lacking a video feed. 3DR is saying it is a faulty gimbal. I am trying to find a replacement HDMI cable for the Gimbal but I an not finding one. 3DR sent me to a repair shop here in San Diego but they want 60 dollars an hour to fix it and a new Gimbal is 80 bucks on their web site. So logic points to the fact that its better to buy a new one and get a year warranty. There is a Ca. Warrenty law about consumer electronics that in many cases gives buyers rights greater than the written warranty if you can not buy parts to fix something. 3DR looks like with the exception of their solo for Mapping, is bailing on Solo. They are not even selling from their site any longer. If anyone has any suggestions I am open to suggestions. I have the whole set up, backback extra batteries and all the goodies.

    dear George, I did purchase a second solo when it's price deteriorated to an unbelievable 399€ ( reside in Germany) Gimbal included, 4 the sole purpose of using it as a spare part supply source. The price in the US was even lower than the one I got from what I overheard in some of this forums discussions.I"
    It must be quite painful for the manufacturer, since to my knowledge the production costs of a solo with gimbal is well above 800$ US!
    So my advice, search for second Solo or 2nd hand one, as a good # of tech freaks and people in need for an ultra compact solution were shifting to the DJI Mavic, (a beautiful, technological advanced and reliable drone ) and use this Solo exclusively 4 spareparts. Drones are sensitive high tech equipement and anybody acquiring one must calculate that some sort of failures or crashes are to happen! E.g. motorpods might fail when Solo, forced to land on a not perfectly horizontal plane due to some unforeseen situation, tends to tilt over and the motors cvontinue to rotate a few seconds before comming to a halt - thereby burning and leading to failure!

    Memorizing the shortcut for turning of the engines manually and having spare pods around is the best thing one can do to prevent a non flighing status that might take months to fix.
    While 3DR had a first class service and replaced my damaged motorpods, living in Europe entailed a 8-10 weeks waiting period which I personally find unacceptable long! So my advice , get another one and in that time send your non working gimbal to 3DR and in case they'll replace it with a functioning unit, either sell it then or keep it as emergency backup!
