If this is something that's already out there apologies and mods can scarp it from site.
Would people be interested in posting a pic or 2 of their mods to the solo.
Anything really, it would be good just to see what people are trying out and how they went about it.
A chance to brag a bit

how is the flight time with the tri props?
Will be less. Triple blades make it more responsive and snappy to control inputs. Ideal for more acrobatic type flying. But the tradeoff is they require more motor RPM and more electrical power to provide the same lift that the traditional two blade props do. By about 20%.

Info superhighway.
Awesome
Thanks paddles. I was not aware of the increased power to turn the tri’s. I do like the way they fly but if their using that much more power maybe I’ll go back to the stockies.
Thanks again

With some modifications on antenna, I made it 3.5km (about 11000ft) in distance 😝

Has anyone a setup for acrobatics or videos. I've seen a video of the throw in the air launch, never thought the solo would be capable of it due to its weight and size......

Throw Launching is possible with Arducopter. Have to enable it specifically however.
