Phoenix 25 to motor connection -- is it right?

Hi:

I got the Himax 2025-4200 motor and Phoenix 25 ESC. The motor has the male gold bullet connectors:


The following pic shows the three wires of the Phoenix ESC.


My questions are:

1. Am I supposed to simply "solder" the 3 wires to the inside of the provided female connectors, as suggested in the pic?

2. As shown in the pic, what is the purpose for the hole in the female connectors?

3. Do you use heat shrink to wrap around the female connectors for insulation?

Thanks a bunch!

1. Yes, make sure you tin the wires first!
2. The hole is so you can solder the wire in at 90 degrees if you wanted and also serves as a spot to heat the solder up if you wanted to desolder the wire from it.
3. Yes.
