Description

This breakout board connects to the 3DR Solo Accessory Bay connector and breaks out all connections (even the non-factory-connected ones). The kit also includes mounting screws for securing the 3DR Solo Breakout Board to your 3DR Solo. This prevents the board from becoming separated from the 3DR Solo during flight.

Options include headers (installed or not), header gender (male/female), or a Micro-USB stack board (for easy USB access to the companion computer inside). The Micro-USB board is designed to be removable, with headers specific to the header gender you select for the main board (aka if you choose male headers for the breakout, the USB board will have female headers soldered on). The Micro-USB board is not intended to be permanently installed (soldered/glued), as it blocks access to the mounting screw underneath.

 

The board pinout follows the table found here. It is repeated and expanded below for posterity:

If you’re looking at the breakout board and you can see the capacitors, pin 1 is top right, and the numbers increase clockwise.

3DR manufactured the Solo with internal mainboard pins 14-23 not connected to the accessory bay. Note that if you do not correctly wire the remaining internal mainboard pins to the accessory board inside your Solo, the pin names/descriptions above will be incorrect! If you’re a visual learner, see the picture in the following tutorial for the signal names on the internal pins.

Mounting screws for the breakout board are included. These screws should be hand-tight only (5 ft-lbs max). It is recommended to apply a small amount of medium strength threadlocker, such as Loctite 242, to the screw prior to installation.
