Build Your Coobro Geo
Whew, we are halfway done now. Grab all of the header pins and stick them in the positions shown in the position below.
Go ahead and tape these headers down like we have done in previous steps. Again, it is really important with these pins to make sure you tape them nice and tight against the PCB.
Solder the headers in place. If you heat up a header too much, you may melt the tape a bit. Don’t worry, the tape will come right off. Just make sure you get a good solder joint, as these headers take a bit of abuse as well.
Flip the board back over, and grab the 10K Ohm resistor. It is the only resistor in the kit, and has brown, black, and orange bands on it. Bend the leads like shown in the image below, and slide it down snug against the PCB.
We don’t need to tape this resistor down. In fact, we are done taping, so you can put your tape away. On the back of the PCB, bend the leads away from each other like shown in the image below. This will hold the resistor snug against the board. Go ahead and solder the resistor in place.
Clip the long resistor leads, and we are done with this step.
That’s it for this step, lets move on to install the capacitors and voltage regulator.
