I'm curious about your need for it to be as light as possible - but only because I'm thinking that the weight of the base, wheels, motors and batteries will far outweigh the Pi, so saving a fraction of a percent on the total weight by removing a few bits of plastic + thin metal sheet is a debabtable saving IMO. I'd be surprised if you're going to save more than 10-20 grams by removing those connectors.iwant5please wrote:Perfect thank you very much for your answers! The reason I am asking this is because we are planning on building at school a small robot in which weight is an important factor. Although I already have a Raspi in which we can make tests in, we need to have the final version by around September. Since I don't know if the Model A would be ready by September, I need to make sure I can reduce the weight of any Model B by unsoldering these components. Thank you guys!
iwant5please wrote:I am actually making a humanoid robot so the weight is important for the balance once it is standing up. The thing is that I will also be using an arduino nano to control the motors so I want to take those components off the Pi in order to try to compensate for the weight of the arduino. Thank you so much for answering guys! I will try to do this... if everything goes well then I will be really happy, if not I will post the process on youtube with the title "Torturing the Raspberry Pi" lol.
Ahhh,,, the biped robot....iwant5please wrote:I am actually making a humanoid robot so the weight is important for the balance once it is standing up.
