I have two pucks. I lost USB brick for one of them. For the second one the brick and cable were not provided the box for some reason!
So I am trying to power them from other power supplies and I am getting issues with the known unresponsiveness to buttons etc. I believe the problem is due to ESP8266 that flair uses. https://youtu.be/6SdyImetbp8?t=0h2m36s
The problem gets exubrated when firmware updates itself to the latest one.
It's hard to nail it down. It works for some combinations of cables and chargers, but not all. It's hard to find a pattern. (So far DJI charger seems ok with some cables on the updated firmware).
1. Is the stable voltage the only thing to ensure when powering flair pucks?
2. Or did you do some other tricks like embedding resistor ID in the original cable?
3. Perhaps shield need to be connected to the ground to allow normal boot?
I thought I will ask here to save myself some time testing this and also to help others so these devices don't become useless after loosing a cable or USB brick.
