How to Remove Header Pins off a Naze32

In Build, Quick Tips by Mike Tseng4 Comments

Here’s the best way I found to remove header pins from a Naze32 or any other header pins off a circuit board.  I’ve destroyed 2 Naze32 boards and a D4R-ii until I figure this out.  If you try to remove the header pins intact by trying to remove the solder by wicking or manually removing the solder, your chance of success is very low.  You will most likely rip out the solder connections on the Naze32 and destroy the board.  If you succeed, you will have a burnt Naze32 board.

Unless you have one of these, this is the best way to remove header pins from a Naze32 or circuit board.

How to remove header pins

  1. Remove the plastic thing holding the pins together.
  2. Individually heat each pin and remove them one by one while the solder is melted
  3. Use solder wick to remove solder from the Naze32.
  4. If you don’t have a new header pin, you’ll need to clean up the pins so they’ll fit back in the holes.  Insert pins back in the plastic pin holder.

If you don’t want to risk destroying your Naze32, you can order a custom soldered Naze32 board from my store.

  1. I am so happy you took the time to make this Video of this 250 model I am new to this Qaud and how to build them you make it look so easy. My question have you made any instruction manual on how to set up all the Electronic to where from setting up the pins to each thing you used in your video to be able to get this quad 250 set up. I have watched your Video about 3 or 4 times each time I see it I learn a little more

      You’re welcome Robert. Glad I could help. I’m working on a manual that has everything from basics, building, tuning and flying. It will be out soon 🙂

       
  2. You seriously have the best FPV website on the internet. Well executed, tons of information.. Im super impressed. I’m down in Austin, but head to Dallas frequently… I see you are in Carrolton? Do you have a physical store front there? Id like to come visit you one day.
