It seems that the linear regulator has been desoldered. Check out that the pad (where the pins are soldered) is still  "glued" to the board before resoldering it. By the way, you will need to remove the tin before resoldering. In my opinion, you should ask for help to a electronics guy, although it is a simple task, if it is your first time you could ruin the board.

If you had a big crash, you should check out all the pads as well, specially analog ones, and check all the continuities between pins.

after a crash, my tiny2.11 autopilot lost a component from the pth08080wah (as I have realized after trying to upload code or starting session without achieving it for a while). I have a complete replacement part, and I wonder if I would be able to desolder the incomplete one and solder the new one. I have seen it has four big "legs" which fit in the board and that has made me think that perhaps I could do that without ruining anything. I have a conventional soldering station and am not an expert (actually I have only soldered wires, connectors and standard 2.54 pins to boards...).

What is your advice?

Furthermore, do you think that something more in the autopilot may have been damaged too? Is there any way to test it or should I change the energy switching power and test the tiny?
