    First, you have to use soldering paste in the 2 pieces to join. Then you melt some tin with hot iron in the 2 pieces, finally you join the 2 pieces and hot both with iron until tin melt and inmefiatly you leave then get cool and tight. Just practice with some wires and pieces before mess with phantom electronics ;) To much hot in some circuit boards, can ruin them easily... So test before...

    Here you have HOW TO. infrienly videos:

    If you are just replacing the motor(s), cut the wires in stead of trying to remove the wire ends from the board.
    Then soldering two wires is a lot easier. Many ruined the board just trying to remove the wires.
