3DR Solo for mapping/ survey/ precision ag


Does anyone have any idea if you will be able to use the 3DR Solo for mapping/survey applications like the X8-M? I know they both use the Pixhawk. Is this just a matter of connecting it to a 3DR radio and sending it waypoints through APM Planner or is there a firmware/software limitation?

Thanks in advance for the help!

  • Have been thinking this myself. They say it works with Mission Planner so I don't see why not. With flight time of 20 min with camera and gimbal that should be good for 100 plus acres. With a less heavy camera mount than the stock gimbal maybe longer. This would be a very attractive option vrs my custom built rigs that take time to get sorted out and flying correctly.
  • Great question! I would like to know also.
