 To make the system more robust it could be a good idea to solder the pins to the top deck. Especially when using the Loco deck and when the drones are supposed to fly a lot. To make the system more robust it could be a good idea to solder the pins to the top deck.

 There are several ways to do this. I will explain one one of them. Common for them all is that it is hard to reverse it as the solder in the holes would have to be sucked out. That is fully doable with the right tools though. There are several ways to do this. I will explain one one of them.

-1. Start by gently removing the plastic part of the female deck connector. This can be done by bending the plastic upwards using a flat screw driver. You might have to do this on several places to get it loose. Don't bend to hard as it might take the pad with it.+1. Start by gently removing the plastic part of the female deck connector.

 5. Now it is time to solder the male pin header instead. If the deck should be used together with another deck beneath the CF2, use the long pin headers, else the short ones can be used. 5.

-Start by balancing the deck on top of the pin headers and solder one pin on each side. This so the it can easily be adjusted if they are not straight.+Start by balancing the deck on top of the pin headers and solder one pin on each side.
