Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Crius CN-06 GPS : BROKEN : How can I fix?

Can anyone recommend or help with fixing my broken Crius CN-06 GPS. I was taking it off the sticky mount the other day and the sticky mount was a bit too sticky and ripped the small battery off the circuit board. You can see the little battery and the two connectors and where they should go on the board, but I';m not sure how to reattach. Any help would be great! Thanks.

Looks like you may have stripped the copper clad pads  :-/, you may have to follow the tracks and solder to different positions.

Unfortunately, the pads go through to the other side and the main GPS module is soldered direct to the board. So, I don';t think there is anything i can do! Sad day!  :(

May well still work, but be cold-starting every time. Worth a try...

I dont mind having a look to re attach for you.  Have done many a pcb repair.  Just let me know.  If you';ve written it off already then if it is feasible to repair it will be a bonus.
Cheers

Ripped mine off absolutely the same way :)
Works fine without battery, just have to wait a little longer every time. After updating GPS with config file it gets 3D fix under a minute anyway so I would say it';s not a big deal.

2" heat shrink is a good addition to these GPS units. It will prevent it from happening again (if you get it fixed) or on its replacement. It won';t affect the antenna at all either, no worries there.

This happened to one of my CN-06s, as I had an other one it was easy to work out which bits I could solder jumper wire to.

I';ll have a look at it when I get back and take some pictures highlighting which components to tap on to.

Yeah, I';ll second that.   I';ve had a couple of GPS units turn up "loose" or unprotected - to which I apply a couple of CMs of large heat shrink and that gives it a nice tough protective skin.

Bit of steady hand De soldering,  craft knife scraping then resoldering and the little 1.5v batt is now reattached.   Had to take off the little surface mount 1k resistor to see where the battery track went and be sure I was re attaching the battery correctly. Then scrape a little of the green coating off the copper track to bridge a little bit of solder to.  Anyway not as bad as I thought although I did hold my breath soldering it with a fine nib.  I don';t have my cirus aiop flight controller setup to test it, so will plop back in a jiffy bag and return for you to try.  I';m sure it will be fine.
Kind regards

Hi Gav,

Oh! Super, Big hug, Thanks! xx. It';s working a treat, you';re a star!  ::) ::) ::)

I shall now put a little heat shrink to protect it.
