After about 2 years, Flyduino finally released their new hardware, the KISS 32A ESC and KISS FC V2. In this review we will take a look at the new features and improvement over the previous versions, and test them in a mini quad to see how they perform.
ESC telemetry allows you to monitor the temperature of ESC, and the RPM of the motors. You can also monitor current usage without having a dedicated current sensor on the FC or PDB (real-time current draw and mAh consumed)
This article explains what FC looptime is and how faster looptime might affect your quadcopter’s flight performance. We’ll also talk about gyro update frequency and ESC refresh rate which are equally important.
We get many requests to recommend the best mini quad ESC, so we created these “Top 5 Best” lists to feature some of the best products based on community feedback, polls and reviews. In this article, we feature five of the top ESC’s that you should consider for your next build!
In this article we will explain what an ESC is, and the factors that affect your choices. We will look into some of the fundamental factors that beginners should consider when buying ESC’s for a mini quad or racing drone.
DYS has finally released their very first BLHeli_32 ESC. If you are still running their good old trusted XM30A this could be a very good upgrade for the BLHeli_32 goodness.
Let’s check out the new Betaflight BLHeli_32 ESC – BetaBees! This Betaflight branded BLHeli_32 ESC is a collaboration between FPVModel, Betaflight, Airbot and BLHeli.
Proshot is a new ESC protocol “concept” created by a RCGroup user “Ub3r”, that encodes DShot with PWM pulses. In theory there might be some benefits in using Proshot over DShot, but whether it makes a noticeable difference and overweight the downside, that’s another question.
There are several types of ESC protocol and firmware available for quadcopter. In this article we will give a little history and explain the technical differences, but most importantly try and clear up some of the confusion beginners experience from such a wide selection.
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.
Check out the latest Quadrant BLHeli_32 ESC from X-Racer. Many thanks to FPVModel for giving us this opportunity to test these ESC’s.
