Phil you may need to open up your NW. If your radio is "wandering" a bit signal wise this will cause a delay feel.

Just soldered my RS PRO ESC. This is the second ESC I've soldered and very different than how I routed/attached my RX8.

I think I put enough slack in the wires, and the solder joints themselves look good, nice and shiny, but I want to make sure I gave enough "slack" to prevent the motor tabs or ESC posts from getting pulled out.

Thanks for the constructive criticism on the solder job, any help on how to do this better is good for me. I have thick skin

It looks good. Personally I would have added 1/2" more but that's me.

For the motor wire connections at the ESC, after you tin the wires, but before the solder is fully cooled, flatten the ends with pliers. You can then fit the wires in the slots in the solder posts on the ESC.

Should I redo the solder job? I don't want to damage the motor ESC.

I did this on my RX8, but the posts were so small on the RS Pro that I didn't think I could get them to fit. Next time I'll flatten them, some more to get them to fit

I did this because I thought you had to on 3 differen RS Pro's, had to use a heavy duty vice grip to flatten them enough and it looks ugly.

Then I read (I think someplace else in this thread), that you didn't have to do that. I tried it and I was much happier.

Personally, I think you did the right thing.

jayhawknavy02 - ditch the heat shrink tubing. The posts act as heat sinks. So having heat shrink tubing, even if just on the battery posts insulates them and doesn't let them cool as effectively.

Other than that it looks good. One thing I do though when wiring up my cars is to slide the motor all the way to the rear, then cut my wires to proper length. This solves 2 issues. No matter where I need my motor for proper gearing/mesh I have enough wire, and once I move the motor forward to get proper mesh I now have enough slack, but not too much, in the wires.

Another reverse polarity question.. I accidently made this mistake for about a half a second. I saw some sparks at the negative battery terminal upon contact. Some smoke from the sparks but that was it. No smoke from the esc. No blown up capacitor. I ran my two 5 minutes qualifiers and an 8 minute main right after cause it seemed okay.

I went ahead and ordered a replacement just in case since Motorama is right around the corner. What do you guys think? Should I open it up and check out the internals?
