Default Soldering esc to the motor vs connectors

Are there many pro's or con's to either of these methods? I am considering soldering them together to shorten up the wires and give a cleaner look.

One con I can think of is if you upgrade, replace, or change out the motor, you need to have a soldering iron handy. If you solder on the bullet connectors you can just plug/unplug. Another is that you had better be sure your motor is running the right direction before soldering.

I can't really think of any pros other than no bullet connectors to locate strategically.

how would you unplug the motor when you check servo operation? you going to let it spool up to half stick then unplug the batt and stop blades to check pitch? soldering just doesnt have any pros to me. just cut your wires shorter then add conections to clean up the look.

how would you unplug the motor when you check servo operation?
You just need to unplug the ESC from the RX and plug in a 4.8V battery pack to check servo operation and pitch.
However I have decided to go with the bullet connectors instead of soldering directly to the motor.
