Hello all, is there anyone from OKC/north OK that might be able to help me out with some soldering? I am having a hard time trying to solder the 10ga wire on my ESC and tired of ruining deans connectors and bullet plugs. If anyone in the area does not mind helping me out, shoot me a PM please! If there is a hobby shop there in the city that does this, let me know as thats fine too.

One trick is too make sure your soldering iron is "Nice n' hot" before you start. Another thing I do when soldering "Deans" is plug in a "Dummy female" into the "male" while soldering, and letting it cool before unplugging---- helps to maintain its shape.

Make sure your using a good 60/40 rosin core solder too.

Crappy solder can ruin what should have been an easy job!

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

P.S. I would suggest using a small bench vice.. I got one at Harbor Freight tools for somewhere around 20 dollars.

Thanks for the info, I will just track down someone who knows how to do it, when I get frustrated it works out better that way for me.

try this. strip the 10awg wire and soak it with some soldering flux. soak it not coat it. the iron i recommend at leat 40 watts with a large tip. large tip like the size of a crayon. radio shack dont cut it here! get a weller from home depot or lowes, very cheap price for value.
when the iron is hot, usually take no more than 5 minutes, touch the iron to the wire and touch the solder to the wire right after. the solder will magically soak into the wire strands and harden it. because of the flux. when the sire is filled up with solder remove the iron and solder.

the solder should soak into the wire pretty fast and the process should take no longer than five second. if longer than this you will have cold solder and will have to cut the wire off and restart all over.

next, coat the tinned wire with some more flux and set aside. add some flux to the dean terminal and tin it with some solder just like you did to the wire. then touch the wire to the dean and heat the wire and the dean and add some more solder to complete the connection.

it is important that the solder connection between the dean and wire is shinny or close to it when cooled off. because it will have better mechanical connection and less resistance. if the solder is dull or frosty looking, its been over heated. this have poor mechanical connection and will break off very easily. like in a nitro heli with vibration. it will break of easily in this environment.

hope this help some.
