This post outlines my favourite soldering iron, solder, and soldering related tools, and I will explain in great detail what kind of solder you should buy. Having the right equipment makes soldering and building FPV drones much more enjoyable.
It’s been a year since I bought the portable TS80 USB soldering iron, finally Miniware has released the upgrade version – TS80P. Here is an overview of the specs and new features, and whether or not it’s better than the old TS80 and worth upgrading to.
If you are building or repairing an FPV drone, you will be doing a lot of soldering! The quality of your soldering determines how reliable your build is going to be, and it’s important that you know how to do it properly.
I will show you how to make a simple solder fume extractor for $20 or less! It’s easy to build and keeps the air in your work space fresh when soldering.
Low quality solder makes soldering tremendously harder. If you have trouble soldering, it could be due to the low quality solder you’re using. Invest in some good quality lead solder will immediately improve your soldering quality and experience.
