  • 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?

  • hello
    Do you know how I can change 3dr solo local port? 
    now, local port is 14550
    but I want to change this

  • 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. 


  • hello. 
    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!




  • @Philip, great news, so where can I go purchase this plug n play optical flow that the firmware will recognize? Is there a link, or possibly a photo of the module? 

    The optical flow was also flown in the 3dr booth at NAB last year, but alas we still can't purchase it or are we able to? 

    Thanks, I'll have a quick look at the mod page when I get a free moment with regards to the wifi card (I was referencing this post earlier

     I sold my X8,Y6b,Iris+ to avoid ever having to mod again (with the exception of plug and play, or in the case of a wifi card a few screws), I unfortunately no longer have extra time to tinker with such things, as it takes away from time in the air.

4K Action Camera Wifi WiMiUS L3 2.45'' LCD Touch Screen $42 off

There is a lot to like about the WiMius L3 16MP 4K Action Cam as it's undoubtedly a worthy competitor to the GoPro at a sharp fraction of the price. It's simply amazing what they were able to do in such a tight package. It does 4k video , 60fps 1080p video, has a webcam mode which would be used on youtube if necessary, comes with a variety of different accessories like the go pro which includes the signature case and many many other cool things as well. I use a program called Bandicam I was…

WiMiUS L2 4K is an impressive affordable action camera [Review]

There are lots of affordable action cameras on the market, but not many of those deserve your attention. In their attempt to compete with upmarket products, vendors tend to focus more on specs rather than the user experience, delivering action cameras that look great on paper but do not work as well as you might expect in real life.That was the case with WiMiUS' L1, which did not live up to my expectations despite having solid components. However, with the new L2, things should be different.…

Solo spare propellers no where to buy!

Hi all, What is the situation with 3DR Solo drone spare parts? I am in the UK and can not find propellers to buy anywhere. There are plenty of drones available (super discounted) but none of the shops have props in stock. Can anyone advise where I should order them from? ThanksMantas
