Default Soldering Iron Recommendations

Hi All,

I bought one of those Weller pistol type soldering irons last year and it appears to have given up the ghost already, it's just not getting hot enough to solder the motor wires onto the terminals....

So, I'm looking for a replacement soldering iron, not too expensive but good quality and (hopefully) long lasting......

Help please folks!

Thanks

I use a core rc 80w and it does a great job. Hot, reliable and easy to use. I have a 100w spare brand new in packet if interested?

The TS100 is good for all round general iron. It doesn't come with a power supply but can use a 4s lipo or a converted laptop power supply.

Or a gas iron, i used one of these on my 1/8th and 1/10th

Or if you want one for in the field and one at home then the nation I've listed below has been good.

Thanks all.

I had considered a gas iron, but can you use them around esc and motor terminals?
