I checked pos and neg are correct. Im nervious now it was only conected a second but has melted the esc plug alittle. Im worried the esc is junk now too. Since it wont even flash when i touch the terminals.
And to top it off the workers are here now and its time for me to leave damn it. I bet theyll have filled the holes by tonight aswel gutted probably the most exciting terrain ive seen for my rc and right on my door step.

Another thing is the flux esc wires have afew cuts and to try to minimize stress on the new solds i taped both wires together.
Now if i force the lipo to the flux esc nothing happens at all mayb the plug isnt going in far enough or i blew the esc which i hope now lol i did use flux when i solderd but i didnt fully tin the ends just the tips (muppet i know lol)
I was just rushing to get out before the workmen arrived i was too tired ehen i got home last night so..... You know how it is lol hopefully there still digging today its a full re scape so with luck ill get muddy tonight.

Try replacing the connectors & use more solder to get a real solid join. If the esc won't react with any of your batteries then chances are it's toast; chalk it up to experience and replace it / get it repaired.
