Hakko FX888D ESD Safe Digital Adjustable Temperature Soldering Iron Station
Goes from room temp to 750* in about 20 seconds. With the combination of 70 W of power and a 5.2 mm tip, no factory ESC connection can stand up to it. I had a Viper that I could not get wires loose with my old 936, but the 888 cut it loose in a couple of seconds. Well worth the price.

Hakko FX888D ESD Safe Digital Adjustable Temperature Soldering Iron Station
This is the best solder station I have ever used. Iron heats up in about 1 min flat to a temp of 750 deg F. Makes very quick work of soldering motor tabs. Comes with everything you need to be a soldering pro, might want to add a large flat tip if you do a lot of motor tabs though, stock tip has more of a point than a chisel edge. This station is worth every penny. If you don't get one now, you will later once you grow tired of losing races to junk solder jobs.

Probably the single best tool purchase I've made in a long time. A must have if you're going to be in this hobby for a while. Less than 15 minutes after it arrived, I broke the JST connector wire on a really small SciSky FC board. I used this to repair it in short order, and I was impressed with how well it worked. Having a quality iron is invaluable. I should have bought this years ago!

Incredible! Love it! Since I started in RC I had my original Radio Shack soldering iron until now,and it worked just okay. I read the reviews and hit the buy button on this one figured this will be the last soldering iron I’ll every buy. Got the spare larger tip also and used it just now to solder the motor wires on my B6.1.

This heats up fast and is easy to use. I bought a larger 3.2mm tip for it and have not been disappointed. The Hakko holds heat well and makes everything you solder much easier. The equipment is built well, This will last you for many years to come no doubt about it.

Used the Soldering station this past weekend to fix two drones. Got some different tip sizes and it worked fantastic. Really like how quickly it gets to 750 and how good it is at melting the solder on just one small touch. Great investment and it works just great.

Heats up extremely quick, it tells you the exact temperature as it heats up to the heat you set it to. Works perfect on soldering moter wires/ esc wires/ etc.

Hakko FX888D ESD Safe Digital Adjustable Temperature Soldering Iron Station
I have used inexpensive irons for years - actually 2, a 20W for small items like resistors or servo wires, and a 40W for big items like speed control or motor wires. They worked fine but I had to keep up on frequent tip maintenance, and they were difficult to use at times. I knew a station would be nice, but balked at the cost.

I should have got the Hakko station a long time ago. Having an adjustable temperature range is so nice - the ability to turn up or down the tip temperature a few degrees makes every job easier. I was soldering up some power wires for a LED strip today - the cheap wire insulation was melting, so I turned the temp down slightly and continued working.

So bottom line - it seems a little pricey compared to hardware store soldering irons but it makes soldering work so much easier.

This is my first higher end soldering station and I must say it's head and shoulders above than the budget units I have used in the past. The iron heats up quicker and recovers faster. I can also set the iron temp to match the piece I am working on. This unit is well worth the additional cost.
