Like Tres posted there was a thread a while back that had the same information. But all I can tell you is that the Hakko is a great iron. It heats up fast, which is what every racer likes .

Goot is another one to look into.

Hakko irons will just plug straight into a 110v wall socket right? I just broke another cheap 40wt weller so I'm going to buy a decient iron...

At one time I was frustraited with the lack of weller support by my LHS on irons. We do have an excellent HS in my area too. I ended up burning up my heating element and was forced each time to buy a newer model.

Now with Action I just buy the heater element and a few tips per order. I even bought the Iron Temp controller for $32. You can plug in any iron and regulate the output or turn it down to save the tip. It even has an on off switch.

I would not go cheap like radioshack. You get what you pay for and they don't have decent tips.

If you buy an iron make sure you can get part support.......

Yep, Hakko irons will plug into the wall. It's the 936 model with the 908 iron or something like that. You will probably need to get the chisel tip for r/c applications. It's a wider than the tip that comes with it in the box. Hope this helps.

If you want a good 12V iron there is the new MRT one. It's rated at 40W (max).

Weller is excellent brand name for soldering iron. Aoyue is less known brand name but - Aoyue manufactures relatively good soldering irons (not as good as Weller ) but much cheaper. In any case I would go with soldering iron which is temperature controlled. That way you can very accurately set temperature of soldering iron.

Default Weller 100/140 watt

http://www.homedepot.ca/webapp/wcs/s...k=P_PartNumber

I have this one and at 100/140 watts it makes soldering heavy gauge wire a breeze especially those pesky deans connectors.

Cheers,

Raz

Some of the cheaper ones are ok (but not many), and yeah the tip design is everything, ignore any iron that comes with like a straight stick in tip held by a screw, they are a waste of money, look for a chunky insert shaped tip held in by a screw over cover, these hold heat better and give more control.
