Review: Holybro Tekko32 35A BLHeli_32 ESC

I received these Holybro Tekko32 35A ESC a few months back but I haven’t had time to test them yet on a mini quad. Anyway I want to get it out of the way so here is an overview of these ESC’s. We will take a look at the features and build quality, and I will update this post once I have tested them.

First Impression

The Tekko32 ESC runs BLHeli_32 firmware. Here are the spec:

  • 2S – 6S
  • 35A Con., 50A burst
  • Weight: 5.2g
  • Dimension: 15x30mm
  • Supports DShot1200 Protocol

It has on-board current sensor, and there are two LED’s on both sides of the ESC. So it doesn’t matter which side you mount your ESC on the quad the light will always be visible.

The Tekko32 seems to have the exact same spec and design as the Airbot Wraith32 V2 ESC’s, maybe it’s just a rebranded product but I am not entirely sure.

It has two huge arrays of capacitors on sides for noise filtering which is good to see :)

The solder pads for ESC signal, signal ground and ESC telemetry are conveniently located at the top edge of the ESC. The pads for power and motor are well sized, and available on both sides which makes working with these ESC’s really easy.

I have to say, the build quality of the Tekko32 ESC is top notch, probably one of the best I’ve seen, and so far I really like the layout.

Combo

You can actually get these ESC’s with the Kakute F4 V2 AIO FC, as well as the Atlatl VTX as a bundle for cheaper prices.

Testing

I am testing these ESC’s on my Flipmode quad, check out the build log to find out any updates and videos regarding them.

    Hi Oscar
    I recently bought the FAKUTE F7 combo with TEKKA32 ESC. After soldering them together, I am not able to the motor to work.
    Are yoi avle to advise me what I’d done wrong?

      There is a bug with the Kakute F7 in older Betaflight firmware, Update your FC to 3.5 or newer should fix it.

    So i tried to use BLHeliSuite32 via FC passthrough to configure those and it worked well, but when I tried to flash the 32.4 version to 32.52, with:
    github.com/bitdump/BLHeli/blob/master/BLHeli_32%20ARM/Rev32.52%20hex%20files/Airbot_Wraith32_ST_Multi_32_52.Hex
    It failed to verify and the ESC is bricked.

    Has anyone successfully updated these ESC? (knowing they show up as Wrait32 ST in BLHeliSuite32)

    dronemesh on youtube test esc noise with a wavescop and these tekko32 are the best esc to date with lowest noise and put out sine wave power to the motor

    That’s a Wraith32 V2 ESC, there’s also V1 and V1.1. I have them on one of my quads. All 3 versions are available on readytoflyquads.com if you want to compare. They are also sold rebranded by Lumenier at Getfpv.

    They do look like the Wrath32 V2. Drone Mesh (YT) did noise test on these ESCs. He said they are the cleanest ESCs he has ever seen. I hope they are rebranded. It is difficult to find the Tekko32 from a US vendor.
