Hi all - I am wondering if anyone here has experience flying a Pixhawk-based multicopter at higher latitudes in the Arctic. We are purchasing an octocopter with Pixhawk and 3DR uBlox GPS for use in…Continue
"Hey Gavin thanks for that great idea. You could run a full mission with the solo say doing a ag field ndvi right from the mission planner like my other 900mhz telemetry rigs and hopefully not loose that crummy wifi signal. I am going to…"
"You could actually use a Ubiquiti wifi radio in station mode linked to the sololink wifi and that would create a long range link between the craft and the ground. This would allow for you to set inside a building on your computer in MP with full…"
"Keep in mind that many plant stressors (e.g. nutrient deficiency) will have the largest and earliest impact by decreasing the concentration of absorbing pigments that will be detected in the visible range as increased reflectance,…"
"I think the jury is still out as to whether these converted NIR cameras provide an improved ability to characterize and monitor vegetation. As Benjamin points out, the false NDVI image presented above could easily be inverted (or the formula…"
"I could be wrong but I think the Wifi connection is between the tablet and the controller. Mission Planner does not require a connection with the Solo while flying preloaded missions. Tower does not either to actually fly preloaded…"
"You are saying that Solo has 3RD Radios. Please post photos. This is what I am asking.
Mission Planner is not Tower. Mission Planner runs in Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. While Tower runs in Android.
Mission Planner is more oriented in using radio…"
"Users can use any of the 3DR's programs however please read this before you venture that direction and understand what 3DR is saying in this quote.

"I am not sure if Solo has telemetry (i.e. 3DR radios in copter and in controller). It seems that Solo is using Wifi now instead of the "3DR Radios", hence, Mission Planner could not be used without modification (i.e. hacking). Based on…"
"I asked this question a few weeks ago in an email to the 3DR software folks and their reply was that Droid Tower Planner would work with the Solo. I don't think I would have one if I couldn't do waypoint flights. I currently have the…"
