After such excitement, I bought another Solo. Start up experience has not been the same as the first. I tried to do the first software update and the controller never has recognized the Solo. Will say the update is ready but never will connect. I have tried the factory reset, both Solo & controller. When I did the rest on the controller, hitting the home & Fly button, it never went to controller updating.

Can't get it to work and I know this topic has been covered. this dude is going back if I can't figure it out.

Thanks,

Matt

That happened to me also. What fixed it was unplugging the controller battery for about a minute and then plug it back in
Good luck

Hello, I had the same "Vehicle Not Detected, Looking for Solo" problem since not flying my Solo for 2 years. Mine was a brick.

I did the factory reset and pairing about 4 times to no avail. I tried online solutions all day without success, then tried updating the firmware on the drone, Solo app device, and controller, which did it.

Here is the link I found: How To Update 3DR Solo Firmware To Fix Issues And Add Features

The only snag was when it said to "Press “A” on the controller to continue the update. " It appeared to hang there, but wait a long time on that...maybe 10 minutes while the drone seeks GPS signals...I heard tones...then I still had to power off.

It worked! THANK YOU, DronZon!
