    Electronic repair?

    Anyone know of a place that will repair R/C equipment? I tried to find the RSSI pin on my corona rx and ended up frying both the rx and my hacker 55x esc.

    It would probably be cheaper to just buy new ones

    Those ESCs I see as disposable. The ESC --- another story. But then there's the question of do you respect/trust an ESC that's been repaired in an FPV plane. I wouldn't.

    here it is folks.... as far as I can tell the chip with the black dot on it is the only one thats damaged. Any ideas?

    Sentry I'd agree with you 99.9999% of the time on this matter, however, this is no long a FPV long range bird. If I can get away with a $15 microchip it'll save me $85 toward a new ESC and so would be worth it in my book. The ONLY reason I am doing what I am doing is because I have a new zephyr coming my way with higher quality components and so THIS ONE will be flown within LOS (1000' max) and will serve more as a test platform for new ideas and components.
