"Sorry that it didn't work out..
What plastic has been melted? The little plastic connectors?
If so you can at least try to solder in the gyro with an iron as of now you cannot destroy much more.
I would not trash it away ;)"
"Just put in a order for a new APM with the new GPS :)
I slapped tin foil on it and tried heating it but there was so little solder on the gyro it did not come even close to melting until the board was so hot the plastic was melting.
"I fixed such kind of solder problem at least 3 times with a paint stripper hot air gun, on my xbox360.

After a debugging session i could confirm that i had changed…"
"Bump the problem is worse than I thought. There is no data at all being displayed in the status tab of the mission planner. I can get reading in the terminal for devices like the compass and the radio but when I click the connect button I…"
I am having major problems with my ArduCopter running the 2.7.3 firmware and Mission Planner version 1.2.12.This all occurred after a nasty crash but while I was fixing it the Mission Planner and ArduCopter software were also updated.
