Just remember to put the heat shrink tubing on the wire before soldering the connector on. It's really had to put it on afterwards.

I never crash, I just create exciting ways to meet the ground. After all, take-offs are desirable, landings are inevitable.

I've found that XT60s can melt with too much heat. EC3s can take a lot of heat as you are only soldering the connector outside of the plastic housing... but an XT60 is already embedded in the plastic shell. The solution? Make sure to attach the mating connector under the one that you are soldering. The extra heat sink and integrity has worked every time for me!
