A Remote Controlled Helicopter With A Damaged Charging Port Repaired
A father and his son walked into the shop and asked me to repair a charging port on a tiny helicopter. The father explained that he bought this toy for his son a day before and it seems like the charging port was not soldered on strong enough or the kid was rough with it. Either way it has to be soldered back on and if broken, it has to be replaced.
Only three tiny screws holding the cover and once these were taken out,
I could see beneath that to see what was wrong.
It is a very simple design and I am guessing easy to repair or maintain.
I lifted the board off and I was able to see a missing charging port;
it was still inside the helicopter housing so I have to do is solder back the way it was but better with stronger joints.
I soldered it back and it was time for testing and making sure all is well.
