frying pan smd soldering

this is my first try to solder smd component not sure if if was a success or crash and burn

Items used:

– ADXL335 pcb sensors kits
– frying pan
– electric stove

pcb board pre-tin


align resistor and the adxl sensor


next step was putting the pcb on a frying pan, heat up the stove for 1 minutes (100c) when it start melting i crank the heat to 180c

I think i burned one of the sensor but good thing i got spare to try again

the result


will test it to see if the sesnor survive the “cooking” hopefully it does or i just burned a 6usd worth of sensor lol,

ADXL335 PCB kits:

Prototyping multiwii board

Today my packages of veroboard with some header & voltage regulator arrived from cytron.

The project goal is to use the veroboard as a protoshield for my arduino mega 2650 that going to be used for my multiwii quad copter flight controller

Plan for multiwii board

– Use arduino mega 2650
– veroboard ans proto shield
– WII motion plus gyro
– ADXL345 acc ( auto leveling)
– BM085 preasure sensor (altitute hold)
– HCM5883 magnetometer (heading hold)

and gps in future when the code are mature, most part arr bought from local online shop such as:

and sensor most of them will be bought from ebay as there much cheaper!

more updates soon!

DIY QuadCopter with KK Board

Finally have the time to post this being doing this for quite sometime now, finally finished with a good result but still need to brush my flying skill a bit more :)

Most people in Multimotor consider this as a mini QuadCopter but to me this Quad considered medium size Quad

This is what I call mini QuadCopter:

Size Different when side by side

the mini haven’t have it maiden flight yet as number of problem with the electronics setup, will need some new part to fix that but the medium quad is flyable!

Will post flight video if I have one in near future!
