"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 select UDP on Mission Planner and use you computers Wifi.  You need to connect via Wifi first on the computer then select UDP on the Mission Planner drop down list and off you go. "

"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…"

Robert H Fraser commented on Kyle Miller's blog post Value in the Near Infrared: Debunking the Myth of a False-NDVI
"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…"

"OK. I think you can use Mission Planner only 1/2 mile distance, since it is using Wifi. More intelligent discussion here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2391450"

Noli Sicad replied to Robert H Fraser's discussion Solo and Mission Planner? in the group 3DR SOLO
"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…"

Noli Sicad replied to Robert H Fraser's discussion Solo and Mission Planner? in the group 3DR SOLO
"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…"
