You are probably still using F3 FC, did you know that our BLHeli ESC are going to use F3 processor too?! Around 2016, ESC’s started upgrading from 8-bit to 32-bit with the F0 processor, and it’s just become the standard in the ESC market today. And now they are upgrading again, to the faster F3. But are we even surprised? :D
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!
The Flycolor X-Cross 35A is the upgrade of their popular Raptor 30A ESC’s. The X-Cross ESC runs the latest BLHeli_32 firmware and support Dshot1200 protocol. It’s compact and lightweight at an affordable price.
This is the first time I review products from Flycolor – the X-Tower stack. I was impressed with the performance and value of their BLHeli_S Rapter ESC’s, so I am looking forward to testing their latest offering.
After testing the Holybro Tekko32 4in1 ESC for about 3 months now, I can finally recommend it with confidence! Top notch build quality, easy to work with, and performance is just impeccable!
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.
There are settings you can play with in BLHeli_32 to achieve better performance on your mini quad. In this article I want to share the settings in BLHeli_32 configurator that have given me the best result.
The Mamba T40 ESC from Diatone might have ordinary specification on paper, but they look pretty damn cool and designed for some very specific builds. Let’s check out these interesting ESC’s!
Race Wire is basically motor wire extension in the form of circuit board. At first glance, it’s only as useful as a piece of wire and many consider it as a gimmick to make money, while some say it’s a godsend for FPV racers. Let’s find out whether or not Race Wire is for you.
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.
