I know full-scale crimps, but:
1) Full scale is crimping better crimps on larger wires. Larger wires are more likely to break a solder joint. A crimp is more likely to break a small wire.
2) Full-scale gets torn down often to inspect
3) Full-scale is trying to get 40,000 hours out of the planes (we've got over 45,000 on some of ours)
For RC... solder is fine. Never heard of a solder joint coming apart. I solder mine because the connectors corrode over time causing low torque and glitches. Every year I would need to rip my planes apart and clean all the connectors if I didn;t solder.
