    I have been doing a fair amount of research on this question but I keep finding contradicting information and can't find a definitive answer. Is it possible to use the Serial 2 port to get Mavlink telemetry data to an external device via the accessory port? And if so what steps are required to make this happen? I am trying to integrate a Micasense Rededge with my Solo and pass the GPS location information from the Solo to the camera as to reduce the redundancy of using two GPS systems and also remove the less precise 3DR legacy GPS that comes bundled with the camera. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated...

    Serial 2 is indeed available from the accessory bay and does not require any special or crazy configuration. The most you may need to do is change a parameter in Tower or Mission planner to enable it if it doesn't enable itself.
