Using an RFD900 with Solo


On previous Pixhawk-based copters I've used the excellent RFD900 radio modem for telemetry and control. Now I'm flying a Solo so I'm wondering whether anyone has hooked an RFD900 up to a Solo-and-Tower combination. Or to Solo and another GCS?

    yes, You can hook up the RFD900 via the accessory bay to the Solo.

    The accessory bay has the Pixhawk Serial 2 on it.

    • Thanks for confirming - I'll give it a try.

    • Please assist me with this process.  I have a RDF900 and this is one of the things that annoyed me with SOLO is the inability to use the long range telemetry.

      Just plug it into the accessory bay, and set it up as normal...

      It's serial 2
    • Where can I get an accessory bay breakout board?

      The Solo mod club has links, are you a member of the solo Facebook pages?
