Did you use a multitester to check whether your solder connections were good before cementing this resister into the acrylic? You won’t be able to fix it after it is cemented inside.
Later in the docs this component is called the heart of the system. On one side it connects to the boards inside the waterproof cylinder. On the other side it connects to all of the motors, batteries, external comms, and future expansion wires. Take your time on this step. Make sure the wires are pressed into their channel, the superglue seal is good, and the epoxy-ed area is filled in.
Caution! In my kit there were 2 white acrylic pieces, but there were also a couple of pieces of clear acrylic that were covered in white paper instead of the usual brown paper (piece 5, I think). Make sure you have removed the paper covers from these pieces.
Just completed. Half an ounce is more than enough for this step, unless you spill it.
First time with acrylic cement, nerve-wracking!
To avoid panic, should mention that the kit does not include manifest, assembly instructions, or user manual.
