Problem is, I can’t get the dammned thing off! It’s a Hobbico microsizer
so I’m also wondering if it will make any difference at all for extending controller range. I also went looking for the cripple capacitor in the controller, but it didn’t have one. I’m wondering is Tomy did something else to cut the range on Microsizers as they started US distribution.
But back to this troublesome minicapacitor. Is there any other way of removing or cutting the connection without having to soften the solder on both ends? I spent 30min. hunched over the thing with a mag visor and a red hot soldering iron, but I couldn’t get the solder soft enough on both ends for it to lift off (without melting something else on the circut board). I’m considering trying to cut it with a pair of micro nippers – if I can find a pair small enough to do the job. Any tips on this??
