You should not
use acid flux on electronics.
I used to use "Nokorrode" brand flux when I started soldering (40+ years ago - on slot cars) but the formulation was changed sometime in the intervening years since I got into RC. The best stuff I have found that is readily available in the U.S. is Rubyfluid brand soldering paste. One place to get it in the U.S.: http://www.artsuppliesforartists.com...ring-paste.php
A tin lasts me about a year and I'm sure I do more soldering than most people. I am not sure what brands would be available in Australia.
