I'm training how to use the hot air gun at my hobby electronics station. It's a brand new machine. I can solder easy enough but the hot air gun is well so far only useful for wire shrink tube.
Here's what I do: I turn it on both to 395° Celsius. I use the iron to put solder on the pads, then I add flux before using the hot air and heat the solder ball up, put the part down, and all looks great. Then the part and solder ball comes off the PCB pad. What am I doing wrong?
The PCB is one of those cheap kits on eBay. It has a bunch of SMD resistors and an LED that lights to show it works afterwards. Any tips or demos related to what I'm doing wrong actually any information would be greatly appreciated.
