Thank you so much for responding. You have provided more information in your response than I have been able to get out of 3dr in a week!
I did figure out how to get the solo.tlog.2 file loaded into Mission Planner. Do you then have to…"
"One of the reasons to implement a Kalman filter, or EFK, is to integrate all of your position data (GPS, accelerator, barometer) and filter out erratic data. In your scenario #2, if you lose a GPS sat or one of the sats gives bogus data, it should…"
"Solo App -> Solo Flight school -> First Flight. At the 2 minute mark, Colin Guinn has Solo in hover and says Solo will stay within a 6 foot bubble. I take this to mean +/- 3 feet in the X, Y, Z position."
"Please don't get me wrong, I have no doubt that clever and qualified people are writing the code.
I'm just basing this observation on my personnel experience between my Phantom and Solo. My Phantom, in GPS hold, seems to drift alot initially.…"
"Way back a long time ago, I did software engineering work with GPS and avionics systems for corporate jets. We had to incorporate things like Kalman filters into our systems to prevent some of the same issues that Solo is encountering.
"I'm so happy that you brought this issue up. The time that it takes to download log files from Solo, and my Y6, is insane.
I had to file a ticket with 3dr (which has been a week and I'm still waiting to hear from 3dr, but that is another issue)…"
"I posted on the other thread with the camera flash. The way that Solo took off looked very similar.
I have heard that there is a firmware update that is supposed to correct the GPS issue.
It has been 4 days since I filed a ticket with 3DR and…"
On the 20th of June I encountered what I believe is a Solo fly away and I posted a video in the 'Solo Crash on Camera Flash' post. I'm looking for some feedback and would greatly appreciate any help with this issue to determine if it was pilot error…
"My bottom line, no.
Long story short, when Solo works properly it is a great platform.
Unfortunately, about 50% of the time my Sole has problems acquiring proper GPS signal. It is hit and miss, sometimes GPS is acquired in a minute and sometimes I…"
"I've had that happen twice now. In the last incident, I started Solo motors and then hit 'fly' to to auto take off. I Once Solo was in a hover, I think I hit the 'fly' button and Solo took off and ran into side of house. Video…"
"No gimbal yet, GoPro in stock Solo mount. The Solo seems to hold alt better than my Y6 in hover. The Solo controller has a 'Pause Solo' button that puts Solo into Loiter mode. I was getting a bit cocky after a couple of flights, pure operator…"
