My old Weller 40 watt solder station is just tired and not doing the larger lugs and wires on 6S stuff, so the question is what does the ARRMA army recommend?
I would rather buy larger than needed but definitely not just enough.
I appreciate the input y'all.

That is a brand that I see at work alot,
I work in the automotive electronics industry and Hakko is prevalent here.
Thanks for the input gentlemen.

Yeah, I got a copy from Hobbyking for like 2 pebbles and a stick and it works. Just needed to buy some beefier tips to have some thermal mass for the fatter wires.

We are sitting on the Hakko brand now to determine a model.
Ugh

What are ya'lls thoughts on a Hakko FM203?
I have never had a Hakko anything to know.

Thanks for the reply, I have a buddy that has a FM203 and when I told him I was lookin for something he offered me his (as he got out of the hobby) for 25 dollars.
That is why I asked.

buy a new one. then you get warranty etc seriously just get a new one you then know the full history and it cant be the soldering iron if your solding comes out bad.

That is better logic than I have most days.
I will order a new one now.
Thanks
