@pagrus Thanks! Yeah, I hope I'll get some more practice with the little stuff before too long. My stepmom used to assemble boards for research balloons - I'll have to get some tips from her when I go visit.

@Creaturista Soldering SMDs are never easy but this looks fantastic. Also we have the same iron :P

@baronvonjace Apparently this is a very popular iron! Any idea what heat level works beat for boards like this? 4 seemed a bit too hot.

@Creaturista I generally use between 3-3 1/2. I’ll use 4-5 if I’m soldering anchor points that need loads of heat.
