Hey guys.

didn't read all the posts on this topic, so sorry if this question already was answered.

what do you think, is this device capable of reflow bga components or would you have to heat up the µC so much to reflow the solder underneath so it would destroy the controller?

background to this particular question is: a while ago i was thinking of buying a quadcopter kit, but the controller board would require bga soldering, the fully assembled board would cost 150€ ( yep, i'm from germany ) more then the non assembled one.

now i'm wondering if this reflow oven could solve such assembly problems for those kits.

I bought a BETA layout controller some time ago, although I use a different (convector) oven.  I wrote a Graphical User Interface (GUI) which interfaces to the BETA layout controller, making it much easier to configure the unit to match a specific solder profile and also to monitor and plot temperature in real time.  It's a free download, for anyone that would like to use it:

Looks like they have updated the reflow controller to V3 Pro. Someone already bought it?

Here is a project much like this that showed up on Hack-a-day.

This looks like it would be much more flexible the one you tested in this video.

Just thought I would toss this in there...
