Here are a few pictures of the build process from yesterday and a video of my first time doing drag soldering. The tip I used for drag soldering I won from dangerousprototypes.com. Thanks, Ian!
The kit is designed by Wayne and Layne. For more information visit www.wayneandlayne.com.
The kit came together pretty smooth except for that one capacitor you can see in the picture. I tired to go back and fix it but decided I didn't want to make it worse. The only issue I have now is my success rate of programming it via their website, http://www.wayneandlayne.com/blinky_programmer/. Today I had better success than last night. Most of the time if finishes the program but doesn't see the end of the stream and just waits for more instructions instead of saving the program. I would recommend the kit to anyone who wants to try their hand at surface mount soldering.
Now that I have successfully soldered this kit I want to get their Blink POV kit. Plus I will start incorporating SMD's in my future projects and designs.
