I wish I could join you guys and gals in September...alas, it will have to be another year.

I did some board level work on a Yuneec...

I scoured the internet at the time to find any resources and there was nothing. Initially, I had some traces to repair and my customer was poorly serviced by the Yuneec local supplier. They claimed they had the best solderer in Canada (sic) and he couldn't fix the board. I kid you not, it was a trace from one through-hole component to another :>).

Long story short, there was another, hidden issue that I discovered on the control board. I localized the defective component but couldn't, for the life of me, identify what spec it actually was. The SMD code couldn't be matched and I couldn't find any schematics.

The reason I say all of this is that, yes, there is a market for Drone Repair. These drones can cost 2K and folks are looking for cheaper solutions than swapping out major parts. The problem is there is no information. Maybe iFixit can try to take a leadership position here and try sway the manufacturers (a guy can dream, can't he?)
