I'm making this guide to help anyone that might intimidated by the thought of soldering together their own controller. I found the process quite enjoyable, and since the entire controller consists of through hole components its not very difficult even for newbies.
I ordered my PCB's from JLCPCB using the gerber file supplied in the through_hole workshop thread: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=23406
I ordered my components from digi-key with kmnov's help. Here is the BOM list I made(corrected size resistor):

To build this you will need the following tools:
- Soldering station
- Recommended: Solder helper(clips and arms)
- Wire Cutters
I currently waiting on my pro micros. Once I receive them I will update the guide with software and installation instructions. Stay tuned for more!
