Removing the display of the GTA02?

Matthias Katzengruber
Hi,

Our current project is to control a small helicopter with the GTA02 on it.
So my question is, if there is a easy way to remove the display of the
phone without destroying it.
Because it is quite heavy and we don't really need it.
Thanks for your help.

Kind regards
Matthias

should be no problem.
i dunno about the drivers (if they are happy when there is no lcm
connected) but if not, that could be hacked in.

otherwise take a look at these picture:

and look for the fpc connector on the upper right corner

and these:

http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Connecting_Neo1973_with_Debug_Board_v2#Neo1973_connector_closed

for how to connect and disconnect fpc cables.

the LCM uses a very similar connector as the debug board does.

the only difference in handling is that the lcm connector should also
have some of the grey/silver metal shielding tape over it.

remove it carefully.

then open the conn and remove the cable. close the conn.

to get the display off you need to carefully pull it off (glued down
with sticky tape on 2 stripes accross the black rubber layer below the lcm.
the rubber rips easily, so be carefull if you want to reassemble it later.

;) so you drone can't lift the usual 400gramms and up?

just joking.. nice project.
