    Delicate soldering job - need a skilled techie

    I have a digital camera I would like to add a radio control trigger to.
    I have ordered the pre-programmed PIC and installation hardware kit. I should have it next week. I already have the camera.
    The camera requires a delicate soldering job to install the connections to the PIC.
    Full instructions are here

    I do not wish to tackle this myself, so if anyone feels they have the skill to do this, please let me know.

    Thanks

    Here is my Bird. Soon we will have some low altitude aerial photos for the site. I have been working towards this for a little over a year now.

    This shot is with the stock canopy, since replaced with the Lexan suit it now wears.

    Yes it is a very cool hobby. Lots of tinkering and tweaking. I fly it in parks and soccer fields mostly. Not too many RC helis around, I'd like to find someone else who flies them. I inquired by email with the local RC club about how many heli pilots are members and where and when they fly and the like, and the only response I got was a membership application pdf file. Kinda turned me off so I have been going it alone, with a lot of help from an RC forum I frequent.

    That is a SWEET toy. Well, I guess it's like ping-pong in that when you get good enough at it it's called "table-tennis". Still, for me it'd be a toy, and likely would never get off the ground. Looking forward to seeing some of the aerials!

    Not good enough for that I'm afraid.

    I'm more computer oriented. Let me know when you want to send email from the command prompt again

    Hi Dan, one of my co-workers flies helicopters. I was just speaking to him about this thread and he mentioned there is about 10 of them that fly helicopters. They are not in any club. He has two helicopters, Vario Evolution and a Rapter V1. He agreed for me to pass along his e-mail address, pgisc@videotron.ca, his name is Pierre. He would like to have more people in there little group. I hope this helps. If you can't get a hold of him, let me know and I'll make sure you two connect.

    I'm not sure, but I think This is how Dr. Evil got started.
    When applying the Rules, you follow them line by line. You don't read between them.
