Will these ESCs be ok?

Ztw 20a mantis esc's. Took the wires off so I can solder the motor leads directly to the esc. Was so much solder though, it looks a bit messy. I cleaned it up as much as possible, but I'm still concerned.

Take a look and let me know.

Hi mate do your self a favor buy a de-solder pump they are not a lot of money, and then heat solder once solder is hot use the pump to suck off solder so it will be a clean contact , on some of the pics there is a chance of the solder running on to 2 contacts and short out

The three contacts on each esc are totally separated. What concerns me is the chip on the board, behind the contact, some of the solder touched the contact and the solder on that chip. If you look close you'll see what I mean. I bought solder wick but it didn't do a great job.

I don't know if it's ok for the solder on the chip and the solder on the contact to touch.
