Review: Aikon AK32 4in1 35A ESC

The AK32 4in1 35A ESC is the latest 4-in-1 ESC from Aikon that runs BLHeli_32 firmware.

I am quite excited about this 4-in-1 about it’s one of the very few BLHeli_32 ESC’s that supports up to 6S LiPo batteries.

Note: The unit I reviewed here is a prototype of the latest version. The Spec is exactly the same as the existing model on the market, only with some small changes such as the added JST header and the location of the capacitors.

Unboxing

The Aikon AK32 35A 4in1 ESC only comes with a signal cable and no other accessories. Maybe an XT60 femail connect would be an nice addition?

Spec & Closer Look

  • Voltage Input: 2S-6S
  • Current Rating: 35A continuous, 45A burst
  • 5V, 2A BEC
  • Dimension: 36x36mm
  • Power wires: 14awg 10cm
  • Signal cable: 10cm, 10 wires, GND, GND, BAT, 5V, PWM4, 3, 2, 1, current sensor, TX ESC Telemetry
  • Weight: 20.4g with wires

It supports current sensor and ESC Telemetry which has become a standard in BLHeli_32 ESC.

Due to the beefy FET’s the board extended an extra 5mm to each side of the board, this could be a challenge for some compact frames.

Testing

I will test this board on a quad in the coming months and report back if there is any issue!

    Man this ESC is sooooo close to what I want in a 4in1 – they just need to ditch the 5v reg and the single huge current shunt and stick 4x smaller shunts on there instead so the ESC current limiting / ESC current telemetry works correctly..

    I would replace the ESC’s on ALL my quads with them if they did this!

    Flew it few times with the Matek F7 board – really solid on BF 3.2.4
    Can’t wait for BF 3.3 to come out with stable 32Khz support
    Flashes iNav too, easily wires GPS + Compass, I2C pads are convenient and did not have to do any crazy resource remapping.
    This might be my new goto BF flight controller.

    the one I have is the same as the amazon link and similar to the graphic on the Aikon site.

      Yes it is. Same spec and feature as the existing version, just added the JST header and changed the layout a tiny bit.
