Over the past few days I've been restoring a pretty broken control box.  Here's some of the "before" pictures:

The resistor above is fried, connector X5 had snapped off, and underneath isn't much better:

2 of the tracks are totally burnt out This control box hasn't had a great time

So firstly I've replaced the resistor with a nice new one and put in a new connector for X5:

Next up I need to connect it to a battery/pod and see if it works...
