soldering micro motor lead wires to esc
What is the secret to soldering the very fine motor leads to the standard esc wires. The motor is a ntm 13-12 2400kv. thanks.
Steady hands.. a good fine tip soldering iron and FLUX. Plenty of rosin flux.
Heat the iron and dunk the tip in flux. Wipe off with a damp paper towel or a dampened soldering sponge.
stick the iron in the flux again and tin the tip (coat with solder... make it shine)
Put a little gob on the circuit board.. tin the spot if not a through-hole
Glob flux on the wire end and tin it.
More flux and make the joint.
Its almost impossible to use too much flux. Get a tub of it.
thank you very much.
Something to help hold the wire and circuit board steady helps too.
If you get the linked version... the base is a bit small. I glued mine to a 6 inch square piece of wood to give it a bigger base.
They also have a version with a soldering iron holder and lighted magnifier. This needs a bigger base even more due to the heavy lighted magnifier and the soldering iron. Just putting the iron in mine topples the thing without having a larger base attached.
I glued this one to a 1 ft square ceramic tile.
If your vision needs assistance (as in bifocals!) one of those magnifying visors with a focal length of perhaps 4 top 6 inches or so will be a REAL help.
These soldering irons are available from a wide variety of places, such as www.mpja.com.
Not cheap, but something like this:

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED IRONS
Fine single strand copper wires must be carefully scraped clean and bright of any varnish coating, without cutting into the copper, using your X-Acto. Use good quality rosin flux and tin the wires before attempting to solder them directly to ESC wires, bullet connectors or circuit boards. As mentioned above, keep iron tip clean, shiny and coated with fresh solder. Both wire and whatever it is being soldered to, must be hot enough for good solder flow and bonding. Be careful not to overheat and damage ESC circuit board. Proper soldering should take about 1/2 second.
