This seems to be a myth from what I can tell. I file the edges of my chassis a bit to knock the corners down but never seal it. Never had a problem.

I always Sealed the chassis with CA and then paint it?? I assume sealing AFTER painting keeps the paint a bit brighter?

I've sanded the chassis, then put some FasKolor Blue on the edges, and then a thin CA. The CA give's a bright shine on the fasky blue....

To bad, the paint chips off sometimes.

I'm guessing by others standards, maybe not so impressive, but when I put in the HW motor I was being silly wanting the engraving facing up, and it just looked better, though in reality my wires are longer than necessary.

Have actually since fitted a Savox low profile and shortened some servo wires etc, look neater, but could be better.

Got a smaller HW ESC on order now, when that comes I may reverse the motor wire bullets and come across the top, don't know for sure.

These are all super neat solder jobs ( compared to mine ).

Any secrets ?

What is the minimum Watt rating of the iron ? I have a 80W but struggling with a neat job.... especially wires directly onto ESC or motor - plugs seem to go better.

I've done great solder jobs with a 40w iron. You just need to make sure it has a broad, flat tip. Also, using flux and high quality solder helps a lot. Keep the tip clean and dab some solder on the tip to heat up the iron more right before you start soldering.

18W pencil iron, seriously, only time recently I have needed more is that damn lead free solder coming on some connections, stuff has a painfully high melting point, and short working range.

You read everywhere about 80-120W irons, big chisel tips etc, but it's all myth, design/quality of the iron is more the key, I mean seriously, not that long ago I got a Hobbyking Lipo (for my starter box) that came with overkill 8 gauge wire on it, still managed to put a deans on it with the same 18W iron...
