A while ago i was looking at some websites which helped beginners build robots. I came across two prominent sites and checked their Start here(first) robots. I found that LMR had an easier to build start here robot which i could have fun building. But there was one major problem, i could not solder. The next day i got some parts for my start here robot from Techsupplies UK and the same day, i went to a local electronics store and bought a cheap 4$ solder iron and 45gram solder with a 1$ de-soldering manual vacuum pump and a stripbard and some male header pins.
I started soldering and found that this video(http://letsmakerobots.com/node/1242) is the greatest help to any beginner who wants to solder.
Initially, i burnt my stripboard(seen in the picture) but after a while i managed to solder some male headers and some wire into the perfboard
