The ESCs will ultimately be placed over the blank area of the Controller Board with the leadwires arching over to the holes they'll be soldered in. Look at the second photograph in this step to make sure you've got them oriented correctly.

Insert the ESC leadwires into the holes on the Controller Board and solder them in place. You'll want your soldering iron to be at a fairly high temperature since there is a lot of metal to sink heat here.

Watch out for stray wire strands that don't make it into the Controller Board holes. These can be removed with small wire cutters or needle-nose pliers.

Once all the ESCs are soldered in place, it is recommended that any excess wire lead that protrudes beyond the solder joint be removed using diagonal cutters.
