I need to replace the resistor R10 on one a BOBv2 that a team member managed to fry. I've already got the 2955G MOSFET replaced. The resistor on our board is destroyed and I can't read any number on it.

If it's not broken, take it apart and fix it

Isn't it fun when your team's home base is only about a mile from GCER?

0.1 ohm, size 2512. Original manufacturer part number ERJ-1TRSJR10U

It sounds like you had a power short. You should check the battery to make sure it is not excessively puffed up, as that is a sign that you damaged the battery.

You might also check for lifted traces, as that is a common occurrence with that type of failure.

I'm pretty sure the battery was also abit puffed. Are there any other parts I should check for?

That's about it.

Some puffiness is okay, excessive puffiness is bad. Google for "Lipo battery pack" to see more information.
