Buy or find more info about the LRP High Power Soldering Station please visit the links below: While surfing the forums recently I was shocked at a particular post. One member wanted to know how much his local shop would charge to solder a new connector to his battery pack. I was shocked when I read this, as perhaps the one skill I have picked up over the years – and can’t do without – has been soldering. The more I looked into this matter, the more I became aware that there really weren’t any good resources showing people what soldering is, why it’s necessary or how to do it. That’s where we come in. Soldering isn’t some secret mumbo-jumbo task that you need to have a masters degree in rocket science to be able to perform. It’s actually quite easy if you know what you’re doing and have the right tools at your disposal. We’ve recently had a chance to test perhaps the best soldering setup out there right now, the LRP High-Power Soldering Station. This made it the perfect time to demonstrate some of the basics of soldering. We’re going to show you how to properly use and maintain your soldering iron, provide some soldering tips, and show you how to perform two of the most common soldering tasks: direct-wiring an electric motor to your speed controller and installing a Deans Ultra Plug. The steps are simple and straightforward and, in most circumstances, just about anyone should be able to perform them. Questions? Comments? Feel free

    @compassman33 The ones shown here are Deans Ultra Plugs

  17. compassman33 says:

    are there different types of deans connectors , i have seen deans with flat connectors and i have seen deans with stick like connectors, is there a difference and does it matter

  18. burtonkidd says:

    I would rather not spend $220 for a soldering station.
    I bought a station last year for $90 temps up to 850*F 60W.

    perfect for what i use it for.

  24. bobbygotland says:

    where do they sell those soldering stations?

  25. doodleman99 says:

    soddering?? lol

  26. HorizonRCdotCom says:

    @purplelambo95 You can either unsolder it to clean it or leave it connected, I’ve done both.

  27. purplelambo95 says:

    if you solder a motor directly to the esc on a slash how are u supposed to clean the motor

  28. followerofchrist27 says:

    Thx so much man, u just saved me $100!

  29. Ispintechno1 says:

    I did mean EC3, thanks I will look for the vid!

  30. HorizonRCdotCom says:

    Get a rotary tool with a cutoff wheel. You’re going to need to slot that screw head so you can use a flat blade screwdriver to back it out.

  31. joe0wnzu says:

    the actual motor screw that holds the motor onto the mtor pl8

  32. HorizonRCdotCom says:

    The pinion setscrew stripped or the actual motor screw?

  33. HorizonRCdotCom says:

    If you mean EC3 we have a video on the site here showing how to install EC3 connectors.

  34. joe0wnzu says:

    when i was taking my motor out i broke the hex on the screw and tryed to get it out but i canot change it now any help ?

  35. Ispintechno1 says:

    This is a very useful video, thank you very much sir.
    Can you make a video to show how to change connectors on lipos and ESCs? Like going from a deans to an AC3 or visa-versa? Something I need to do and would like to know the expert way to do it.
    Grats 😀

  36. nts213 says:

    Thank you you’ve been alot of help.

  37. HorizonRCdotCom says:

    I don’t like using flux personally. I think it makes more of a mess than it’s worth. If you use a good quality solder and iron and properly clean the surface you’re soldering to you won’t need it.

  38. nts213 says:

    Do you need to use flux when you solder.

  39. ossiegoldhill123 says:

    use horizon UK not US if you live in England they are fantastic. just google horizon hobby uk
