  • It seems to me that the battery connector is wired up backwards to convention. I plugged one of my 500 maH single cell helicopter batteries into it (Blade Glimpse) and it smoked Q1. I should have checked the polarity beforehand but I assumed that all JST pinouts were the same.

    The Thing still works off of USB and the battery charger chip seems to have survived (it is putting out 4.3V to the battery connector) but the FET is a goner. I cannot read the part number (burned through) - what is an appropriate replacement FET in case I want to try it again?

  • Do I need to buy an antenna? If so, what is recommended?

No public wish lists :(
