    So! I crashed finally. It's sure sturdy. However, there is an adhesive on the motherboard. When the battery compartment popped out during the crash, the ground wire came undone. Power won't come up. When I place the ground wire back in contact and a battery is connected, voila! So my question (as I am not an electronics wizard yet)... what adhesive do I use to put this thing back on? It's such an EZ fix. I just need to know the material to use.

    You will just solder the wire back or if you pulled the copper trace, epoxy.

    Or just solder to a different place on the board that is ground, there are many of them.

    Did it pull the pad off the board? From the picture it looks like that is what happened. You will need to "SOLDER" it back to another "Ground" point on the board.

    I re-soldered. It worked. About to reassemble. Wish me luck! The power now connects and I get the little tune.
