About Me:

I started flying with an AR.Drone, then to CC, CC3D, Revo, TauLabs Sparky, and now getting involved with APM/PX4/Pixhawk.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I've been flying multirotors for several years and am very interested in their evolution.

Brit Davis replied to Eric Compas's discussion Solo crash -- GPS issue or...pilot error? in 3DR SOLO
"Bottom line is relying on GPS modes is only as good as the GPS data.
My A button is set for Stabilize/Attitude mode for the case where GPS fails, I'm in control.
Practicing going from FLY to FLY:Manual or Stabilize/Attitude is a really good thing to…"

"Hi Chris,
There is no such setting in my Adv wifi settings. that's the issue in a nutshell. Glad yours is working well. I did do the updates, and actually got it to 5.0 via manual update but it was still the same. :) "

"Erik, I will call them to report this so that they can add this as a note to their HW list. Thanks for that suggestion!
Otherwise, my solution was to return the MeMo Pad and get a Samsung Tab 4, which (so far) has allowed me to have total manual con…"

"So I just took back the MeMo pad and got a Tab 4. I can switch wifi networks manually w/o it doing any kind of checking. Basically working as expected. Problem solved!"

"It was brand new, factory reset.
I might have to try a custom ROM on it to be able to better control the wifi settings."

"All I needed was a screen to run DP, err, Tower, and the Solo App. I normally buy higher end stuff, but I lost $4K in the theft of my higly-customized Discovery Pro/AMob/Pixhawk/Taranis/Telemetry/Nexus 7 setup. I saw no reason to spend much on a scr…"

"I think I'm closing in on the issue. Shortly after connecting, I get a message that the wifi connection "has a poor internet connection" (duh, yes, not trying to get to the Internet via SoloLink) and I say OK (the only option) That then puts the Sol…"

"I don't really deal with consumer devices. The Solo is the first prosumer quad I've owned (all the rest were built from scratch), and so far the wifi stuff is my least favorite part of it."

Brit Davis posted a discussion in 3DR SOLO
I can successfully connect my brand-new Asus MemoPad and brand new Solo to SoloLink and run the Solo App or Tower, but once I'm disconnected and try to reconnect to the SoloLink wifi network, the network shows as "not in range" but it is only 10 fee…

"Bruno,
Sorry you're having issues! That firmware is not mine, it comes directly from RFD. It worked for me, but it's been so long since I messed with it that I don't think I know any more than you do about how to recover or re-flash."

"Hello Adrian,
Yes, it works just fine. It has been a long time since I set it up so I can't really do a mini-how to, but you can find the documentation on it. You will need to set AT registers manually to get it working, but it's not that hard once…"

"Exactly. I trust myself more than the current state of autopilots available at this level, so I use them sparingly and only when I command it.
What happened to you has happend to me and it scared the crap out of me so bad that it was a moment like,…"
