We're been hard at work at 3DR on system architecture and looking into new ways of building adaptable UAV systems.Solo in particular leverages a number of distributed systems--vehicle, controller, and app--that continue to enable industry-leading…
"Thanks Tridge! It's been great working with you, Randy, and the rest of the dev team on things like data logging. Looking forward to making Arducopter even better on Solo and in general! Next on the docket in getting the Solo fork in closer sync…"
3DR is proud to announce that today we’re opening the source code for the Solo flight controller. Solo is a consumer product, aimed at simplifying the process of getting great aerial footage. As a development story, true to 3DR’s open spirit, Solo…
Some other things to try that might give a better sense of the issue...
You've probably though of this, but did you actually try to arm (Holding down Fly)? You can do this in either the mode Solo starts in, which requires GPS, or any of the…"
"@benbojangles Yes, we're looking into adding terrain following support in Droidplanner. It exists in Arduplane and will be introduced in Arducopter soon. Mission planner already supports terrain following with plane."
"The version of Pix4D bundled with the mapping platform is a new product for Pix4D and only available through 3DR at this point. It is essentially the Pro version, minus export of 3D file formats (obj, ply, las, etc.) and minus the index calculator…"
"Replying to David's comment from the other thread.
The triggering is done by a relay signal off of the aux port. This was a bit more robust to noise than PWM triggering. As for tagging you can use one of two methods:
"Great job guys, and great report! It was a fantastic experience working with you all, and fantastic to see intrepid university researchers such as yourselves working on an open source project. Kudos! Randy is definitely the right guy to talk to…"
