any advice on how to keep your esc reiceiver plug soldered up good to the p.c. board?

Hello pilots, i have had several e.s.c.'s have planes either go haywire or crash due to the soldered wires at the p.c.b. coming loose, or off during flight. This last time it was a 100 m.p.h. wedgi but thank god i was out and up as she spiraled in. I know its my fault by not checking it before each flight that time , but it seems the manufactures should pre-attach the wire to the p.c.b. or case, and then solder the ends to the p.c.b. thus releiving the tugging action on the solder joint. Thanks for any ideas, as its kind of tricky to fix, due to the small wires, is their such a thing as tapered wire? I realize the lead wire must be small to fit into the receiver slot but is their a better way? Thanks alot ................................pete lane.......airout
