Good, now hopefully the TS100 will become even cheaper soon. Smile

I reacted a bit dull last night when you said you were going to buy me one of these, it was totally unexpected when I read that while gaming. Like, huh? Surprised Will be awesome to have a new soldering iron, as my old one is super shit. Even ruined a flightcontroller once, because the iron barely gets hot enough. Very frustrating to mess on a small solderjoint for 10 minutes because the iron stays too cold, when it should take only seconds to solder. Having to solder with the part half centimeter from the tip is not easy on those small solderpads, specially when de-soldering.

I would also be very happy with the cheaper TS100, performance is about the same.
Or even a cheap one with cord, saw on banggood a couple of nice ones that can produce enough heat.
Should have bought a new one myself long time ago, but the old one still gets it done.

Anyway, if and when I receive the new iron, I will rebuild my quad asap, at least resolder all joints to strengthen them. Though it doesn't look bad now, solder is nicely smooth overall. Due to the low temps the joints can still be weak, or not as strong as they should be.

Like I said yesterday: Hope you get the house sold quick, and for a good price.

Trying not to feel guilty about buying a new €475 videocard in a couple of weeks, been saving for that for months now.  Smile
Wish I could spend it all on a new soldering iron, fpv goggles, xlite and quad parts. With that money I could buy it all at once, but I really need that videocard.

Don`t feel guilty about the gpx carfd m8,it is importatnt that you
have a machine capable of running new software when and if you
wish too.
Also the TS100 is pretty cheap now and won`t stretch my recources to much i hope   definately keep clear of any cheap usb irons
they just can`t supply the current to keep hot while working.

Awesome

Only 2 weeks waiting left... bounce

Can't wait to finish and start using the pc I started building 3 months ago.
Thought my old gpu would suffice, but instead it bottlenecks terribly.

Bought 2 cheap ones locally in the past, and compared to the cheap on banggood, they weren't even that cheap. (30-ish)
This was when the TS100 still was expensive, and fairly new on the market. Both irons worked ok in the beginning, but quickly lost their strength. Cleaning the tip only helps a little. Should have bought a new one already long ago, but instead I kept spending the money on new quad parts and batteries. Smile
