It’s always a good idea to get a good soldering iron!

I see a lot of people that will go out and buy the cheapest soldering iron from china they can find, not knowing that in a month it with be almost completely useless. It’s not going to save you money in the long run when your UAV (drone) comes crashing down because of a bad solder connection (It happens). Plus when you have a  high quality iron it makes soldering way easier and sometimes even fun! You can get one from the hardware store but I would go with eBay or Amazon for better prices.

Whatever iron you get, make sure it has adjustable power output and high quality solder tips.
