Its best to use just enough solder to make a connection, it has less resistance and holds up better.
Look at this new drawing:
Can we say that, once we obtained a successfully result like that on the left, adding solder to reach the result on the right adds mechanical resistence without decreasing electric resistence?

The question is: is Sn63Pb37 + RMA flux the best for gold and silver plated parts too?

By the way, I notice that some RC wires appears externally grey instead of reddish like copper. Why? what material are they done of?
