I'm just going to leave this here.
Yeah, gotta have a very steady hand for that level of SMD soldering.
Actually I was surprised by how forgiving the process is. Even fairly large (relatively speaking) alignment issues were sorted out by the solder pulling the component into place.
Been soldering without flux, will I be getting better results buying a flux pen to help?
been building quads/drones
Large stuff (wiring/connectors)? there will be enough flux in your solder if you are using a good one, if its not maybe some gel flux. Likely though you are not getting things hot enough, lots of thermal mass on many drone parts.
Flux pen good, flux gel in syringe even better. More precise application and it sticks where you apply it better than the liquid flux in the pens.
Gives you a good start to effectively get some heat into a high-thermal-mass joint, so you end up spending less time heat-soaking your components.
Only problem is the residue it leaves behind, but that is easily dealt with by acetone or any other similar solvent (CRC contact cleaner etc.).
Get a "no-clean" flux and you can simply ignore it if you're more concerned with function than appearance.
hey guys how hard is this to move the main controller w/ integrated bios chip to the new hdd board I purchased or is anyone willing to do this for a fee.
Is that a WD board?
Hi Mathew yes it is.I have a new board from ayam data recovery, WD5000AAJS-32YFA0 2060-701477-002 REV A.
I think I have a few.
I already have the new board. I need the controller chip swapped.
It is very much doable, you'll want a hot air rework station to do the job.
If you're desperate I could, but it wouldn't be done quickly.
I have till aug 6th to have it done. pm me.
That’s a 5-10 minute job at most.
