Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Protecting the USB port on the Crius AIOP

Like many I broke the USB port off my board and now have to use an FTDi adapter...  therefore have been looking at ways to protect my USB ports on the FC';s I use.

Sourced some short USB cables with right angled adapters... you can get them in micro and mini USB formats... also to convert micro to USB etc.. for a few pounds well worth it.. I got this one on Ebay..


Will cable tie the cable under the frame....so I can get at the port without taking any covers off etc.. so also more useful

My fix for a similar issue on a different board was to blob a tiny amount of epoxy on either side of the USB port to reinforce where it attaches to the flight controller. As long as you don';t get epoxy inside the plug this should work ok - at least it did for me.

One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

Both good ideas I had already thought about using a short adapter type lead and cable tie it to the frame, but never actually got round to doing it  ~~
