Side Projects – Working on this little widget… cleaning up some old solder welds… #reskilled. Thought I would put a little video together, something simple, little and it lights up the room. A torch? Flashlight requirements – 2 large paperclips, D battery, flashlight bulb and two solder points(a. solder two paperclips together b. one on the negative side as a larger touchpad). Simple right?

Back from the airfield, part 2… practice makes perfection. Not in my case. Soldering these nano/micro drones takes serious patience. However, got into some trouble, minor issues:

  • 2 LED strips out, severed
  • Antennae, severed
  • Power lead loose (+positive lead)
  • Burned/malformed poly frame
  • Fix – clipped and prepped for new wires, new led strips, new poly frame ordered, replaced antennae, re-soldered leads and shrink wrapped wires were applicable.
