Default Motor solder tab loose

I have a rev tech 7.5t motor. One of the solder tabs are loose. Not sure how to fix it. Any suggestions?

Just use a drop of CA glue to hold it in place.

Have you don't this? Will this be an issue with glue and heat?

Either CA or a dab of epoxy. Have done it before and never had an issue with heat.

I have also unsoldered the tab and placed epoxy right under the tab. Than resoldered.

Careful doing this if you race where they may tech motors this I would doubt would be considered legal. A little thin CA will hold the tab in place with no problems.

I doubt they'd even notice. After doing it, I can't even tell and I did it!

Just some CA (superglue) is fine. I also had this happen, and I also repaired with superglue. Has held up great, and I crash A LOT.
