One problem I’ve found is how does one practice? I don’t have spare motors or esc to use.
I practiced w/ some older and spare RC battery wire and a few bullet style battery posts.
As for holding the posts in place I use a battery, then used some "helping hands" to hold the wires in place and practiced that way. (you can get copper wire and solder some aligator clips to the ends to make your own "helping hands") or you can purchase some (they come in various styles, and materials).

...one thing I noticed or learned is that you want to let the joint your making stay as still as possible until it hardens (usually just 2-4sec's). If you have any movement in your solder connection tiny cracks may be present/develop as it is hardening. So I try to make my solder while holding in my breath, then blow out on the solder a bit to help it harden quicker.
