    it's a resistor, but you will probably want a new main board. they are pretty cheap ($60)

    I believe I had read somewhere here that is in fact an inductor.
    There are no markings on it consistent with either a diode or resistor.
    It is shaped more like a capacitor with a black body.

    Not looking to pick a fight but just maybe tweak someone's memory.

    Definitely better off replacing the entire main board.

    It's a 1uH Inductor, 0805. It supplies battery power to the CAM connector there. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=28252

    Before doing anything make sure that Electrolytic Capacitor there doesn't have the top bulged on it (top left, 25v 150uF) can't really tell from that pic sine it's out of focus in the shot, but if it is, then it needs replaced as well. If you have all of your wiring corrected so there's no more short, you can just clean that up and install a new Inductor, a 0ohm jumper Resistor or just a piece of wire, no reason to replace the entire PCB for that issue, and if you do, then send me the 'bad' one. ;)

    I am yet to do the iosd mod, but would appreciate hearing what you did so I can make sure I dont do it.
    Completely understand if you dont want to reply to this.
    Hope you get flying soon.
