    I am probably going to have to replace a motor and I am not too confident in my solder abilities. I know there are two places online in california that will take them but shipping is probably going to cost a fortune to get my big carrying case all the way out there.

    I called a few hobby shops and no luck.

    Find a friend who can solder, it's easy and it's only three connections.

    You can do it yourself. I can probably help remotely, do not desolder the old motor, you will risk the ESC, instead take a picture of the wiring, cut the motor wires and solder the new motor to the old wires with shrink tubing and you are golden.

    Let me know if you need help.

    most hobby shops will solder for you. for a price. or radio shack. they are always excited to see new things.
