Basic R/C Connector Soldering

Here is a video I shot to show basic soldering skills for a mini-Deans connector.

Only thing I can see you missed was to use some 3 or 4 to one shrink tube. Nice job on the vid.

This was a simple video to show basic technique. I used oversized heat shrink to make it easier to see in the video. Soldering around a tripod and light stand is not that easy :-)

I use high quality 3M 301 heat shrink.

I'm doing a series of videos. One for each type of connector.

Learning how to glide.
Thanks for the video.
Just learning myself, and so far have a wire splice and an EC3 connector under my belt. Will look forward to your ec3 connector video, to see how I could improve.
