I assume you guys know that Crius didn't solder the frame of the connector to the PCB but if you do (with a small solder penci) it's pretty robust. I've had no problems since doing that.

Forgive me if you already knew about that.

I didn't know that. I'll certainly have a look that when I get the replacement board.

I have a small mini-B female to to micro-B male tail I was going to use to pull the USB out to one of the copter arms. Do you know how feasible it would be to snip off the micro-B end & solder the wires to the board?

USB seems to just be Gnd/5v plus a 2-wire, differential data interface - so shouldn't be too hard?

As I have a replacement board on order I'm happy to mess with this one!
