I know alot of people are not soldering experts so i have decided that we will do the following and that is have the wires already soldered to the esc from factory and then you can solder to the motor etc yourself .

Im thinking along the lines of the xerun product as all black wiring for the motor with A ,B,C printing on the wiring so you dont make any mistakes when soldering .The battery wires will stay the same but with the printing of plus and minus on the wire .

what do you guys think ?

regards Angelo

I don't have one as of yet but since many esc's also have the end user do the soldering and I've never heard of such a problem, perhaps the problem with the V3 is related to the location of the solder posts and metal around it?
