In this article we will explain what an ESC is, and the factors that affect your purchase decision. We will cover all the basics of ESC that is used in racing drones, this should be an informative guide for beginners getting into mini quad.
Here is an overview of the Forward 65A 4in1 ESC HGLRC just sent me. I will go through the specs and features of this ESC, and look at it closely before putting it in a new build (happening in a week or two).
The Diatone Mamba F4 Nano Stack (134) is a 16x16mm flight controller stack that support 2S to 4S LiPo voltage input. Build quality looks awesome!
Looking for a nano 16x16mm flight controller stack for your next micro quad? Check out the iFlight Succex F4 Micro Stack which has been around long enough to prove itself a reliable option.
Diatone’s latest Mamba F7 stacks look awesome! I am seriously considering them as now one of the best FC and 4in1 ESC combos on the market. There are two versions, the Mini stack (20x20mm) and Super stack (30.5×30.5mm).
If you are looking for a clean LED solution for your quadcopter, check out these motor wire LED boards. These are basically LED’s that are built on top of race wires, and the brightness changes with throttle level.
If you get a popup warning in BLHeliSuite_32 configurator, saying “ESC Not in Sync with Master”, what does that mean?
Do you notice the start-up beeps the motor/ESC makes when you plug in the LiPo battery? It beeps even when there is no buzzer (piezo beeper) connected, and we can turn that feature into a lost model alarm.
Are you having trouble with motor outputs on a flight controller? One of the motors just doesn’t spin when you arm the quad? In this post I will share some experience how to troubleshoot and fix “dead” motor outputs on an FC.
Matek posted something interesting today – a demonstration of a possible new ESC protocol, Serialshot! It’s going to completely change how your ESC is wired to the flight controller.
