Excellent tip, DrOlds!

I was also thinking about clipping an aluminum "alligator" style heat sink to each terminal on the other side, to draw away excess heat. Would this draw too much heat and be counterproductive while soldering?

I don't think it would make much difference.I have plugged them into one that was already installed on a battery or speed control before and not had any problems but I think it is probably more important to just get it done as quickly as possible and get the heat off of it.

That's a good tip, but I've read from somewhere, I forgot where, that is specifically says that you should NOT solder them while plugged together... I think one of the guys at RC10B4.com said so... I may be wrong, but I do remember reading that. I'm not sure, I'll get back to you when I figure it out.
