I was un soldering the wires on my asf board to put in a pn racing spektrum board and when I did I must have bumped a wire. Now what thr caused was switch #2 pad to link to the battery positive solder pad.
Will this cause problems and if so what is the best way to remove the solder without over heating the board at all

you could either try correcting your solder by allowing a clean iron to draw the solder towards the pos or you can connect pos and switch 1 and 2 all together and essentially remove the switch.

It states on the Kenon page for the Spekrum board not to short the switch and pos power...
Regarding power switch removal, power + (red) MUST NOT short to the power switch terminals
Jump the power switch terminal on the bottom side of the board, allow power + (red) wire lay flat

Due to the information on the Kenon site, I would think that it would not be safe to use with switch2 connected to the positive terminal. It will need to be unbridged.

You should be able to clean it up with a clean iron. just keep the iron clean, and do a few passes, cleaning each time, and you should be able to easily separate the pads. You could even use some stranded wire to wick the solder off... dip it in some flux, and don't tin it... then solder it to the glob of solder, and before it sets, remove it... most of the solder should come off the board.
