I will show you how to to test motor spin direction after connecting it to an ESC. You want to make sure all the motors on your quadcopter rotate in the correct direction. Otherwise it will flip over (or freak out) when you try to take off.
There are two ways of calibrating ESC in your quadcopter: using the “motor tab” in Betaflight Configurator or BLHeliSuite Configurator. You don’t need to do ESC calibration if you are using DShot protocol, for other ESC protocols you need to calibrate your ESC’s.

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.
The TattooF4S from Racerstar is an AIO FC that not only has integrated PDB, but also combines ESC’s on one single board! I am very excited about the idea because it can truly clean up the wiring and make your mini quad much easier to build.
In this article we will recommend some of the best mini quad ESC based on my personal experience as well as community feedback and reviews. We will cover the pro’s and con’s of each ESC, and what should consider for your next build!
