    I found this video on youtube. It demonstrates the proper way to solder a cup type terminal. I found this to be right on par with the bullet connectors on the ESCs.

    That's an interesting technique in the video, the solder 'pre-form' idea is a new one on me. i'll give it a try next time.

    By the way.. i'm always curious why you guys in the US pronounce the word solder (sold-er) to sound like 'Soder'?.. What happened to the 'L' ?

    My answer to that question is with another question. Why is it when you pronounce "Battery", it's pronounced "Bat-ry"? lol What happened to the second T and the E?

    Probably the same reason New Yorkers say 'Pee-can' as we southerners say 'Puh-con'.

    We invented the English language so we are allowed to abuse it;)

    You should hear some of the people I have worked with...they invent their own words. Just plain destroy the English language.

    Topic, next exit.
