Did you try liquid solder flux?
Solder tip tinner/cleaner.
Enough heat?
Small diameter rosin-core solder?

It was scary, I tried a rosin pen, 0.8mm multicore solder, but I think it was the heat, it was so hard to get heat to that tiny contact. It finally worked when I held the iron on it for about a minute.

Here is a 8 second clip of the crash & bounce. Thinking back now I'm not sure if it was a glitch or pilot error, the confusing thing was I cut the throttle before it hit but it kept going.
