Solo requires an active GPS signal for flight. After powering on, Solo can take up to five minutes to acquire a strong GPS lock. Always choose a flying location with a clear view of the sky to improve GPS signal strength. The following requirements define a GPS lock:

  • Reported horizontal position accuracy < 16 ft. (5 m)
  • Reported speed accuracy < 2 mph (1 m/s)
  • Number of satellites ≥ 9
  • Difference between GPS and inertial navigation vertical velocity < 2 mph (1 m/s)
