Anyhow any "class" on the internet/ youtube? I am very good with the soldering iron but you got me worried that it takes some special handling?
Also a few times that I tried to solder these it did not seem to be so easy for the solder to stick to the terminals.
The tabs are supposed to be cadmium plated, solder won't stick to it. Some have the equipment to spot weld the tabs. You can try using a dremel and sanding drum to stip the cadmium off the tab, drilling a hole through the tab to give the solder something to hold on to.

Just had a Habu 32 fall out of the sky from a Sky Lipo gone bad, new off the shelf. Test these under load and avoid the loss I just suffered.
