Solo’s GPS depends on a clear view of the sky for accurate location tracking. These GPS signals can be blocked by tall structures like trees and buildings, causing unexpected flight behavior, so it is extremely important to fly in wide-open areas away from people.
The Preflight Checklist will walk you through all the necessary pre checks for a prepared flight. It’s hard to remember everything, so keep this guide handy.
Solo’s GPS system is your safety net. Without GPS, Solo is unable to use location tracking and rely on features like Return to Home and Smart Shots.
This will ensure Solo has a safe amount of room to get into the air.
Spinning propellers can cause serious injury. Never touch moving propellers or place any objects in the way of the propeller while Solo’s motors are powered. To power down the motors, hold A + B + Pause.
At any point if you find yourself in over your head, simply press the Pause button and Solo will stop and hover in place.
This will help ensure that Solo pairs with the correct controller.
You can call Solo back to its launch point by pressing the Return Home button. It is best to test out where exactly the home position has been set before flying longer distances because accuracy can vary based on your location’s GPS quality.
