2021-07-22 (Th) 24EngLaserGrid Supporting components

I have a hot air soldering station perfect for removing the infrared camera from a Wii remote. My butane soldering iron was a lot closer and fueled up, so I used it to remove the parts, and it worked all right, but I scorched the PCB in the process. I didn't think I would need the metal supports since I wouldn't be shaking this camera later, so I cut them off. Unfortunately, the supports held the tiny camera in its adapter plate, so it popped out. I wish I had done this before attacking it all with a butane torch.
Burnt board and loose camera

The camera is hardly stand-alone. It doesn't send out video, but instead, it sends I2C data about infrared points. The unit requires some supporting components, including a crystal, and I don't keep any of those on hand. The parts are not hard to find, and maybe I could track them down locally, but I ordered enough to make a few cameras.
