Hey,attention SOLO pilots; I have a solo that went psyco on me on the 3rd flight. No worries though, it had the updated version [black board] gps,I got it in my other solo and, WOW what a difference! However, the rest of it is available for whomever needs parts. You can contact me at, for any info you need. Hope this helps someone.

Any word on 3DR's plan for solo? My Hero 4 died and just found out that their are none available and no plans to support hero 5. Also no new gimbal and camera systems available. Anyone else in this situation?

Systems batteries for UAVs, capable of long flights or lifting heavy payloads.

All battery packs are precisely and carefully handmade by a CMEC technician , and are intended to use for UAVs which are suitable for various industry applications, such as television broadcasting, signal relay, video surveillance, surveying and mapping, aerial photography, pipeline and powerline patrol, medical aids, agriculture.

Battery quality is extremely important to us. We only use premium genuine Panasonic NCR18650GA Lithium-ion cells type with specific energy about 259Wh/kg (LiNiCoAlO2 chemistry), all same rank, in our battery packs.

These kind of cylindrical cells used in electric vehicles Tesla, have at least 70% more energy density per weight, long lifespan and are less heavy than Li-Polymer types.

A battery pack assembled with cell type 18650 with high energy density it is translated into a 70% longer flight time, or more heavy payloads!

See below a chart with all battery packs assembled with Panasonic NCR18650GA 3.5Ah 10A, ordered by configuration, capacity and weight. Price list.

More info about battery packs on uavfpvbattery webpage.

Anyone hear anything on the GPS RevB.? Been having issues with rather long sat acquisition times, and am looking to resolve this issue. Perhaps someone can direct me where we can purchase the newer model of GPS? Or even maybe someone from 3DR who has knowledge on the matter, wether or not they themselves will be offering the newer rev.

I have great respect for you.

I saw :


I want to try control multiple drone. so I think three method.

1.use wifi

2.use telemetry radio

3.use raspberry pi

1 and 2 via mission planner

3 via visual studio and dronekit

First I try 1 and 3 but I think '1' difficult via mission planner because don't connect mulit-wifi(?)

and '3' is progressing.

So I try using telemetry radio(3dr radio) now.

I see it :

but I have problem.

I connect 3dr radio with 3dr solo accessary board. and bright lignt green.

but not connect mission planner + 3dr solo... searching mavlink...

what can I do??

!!!! I been years long method handled by the Solo SDK and ROS swarm controller...:(

When this method come out??

Have a good day

Thanks RPM. I found the PDF here.

I'm getting my hacked Qx1 to trigger a Emlid Reach GPS tracker but still notintegration the geo tag data

An article in this month's Lidar Magazine about using the Solo for surveying landfill sites in the US.

Real interesting when they break down the cost savings compared to conventional techniques!
