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.
The Tekko32 F3 Slim ESC by Holybro is very light weight and compact, designed to be mounted on the slim arms of racing drone frames without creating extra air resistance. Check these out if you are looking to push the performance of your mini quad.
BLHeli_32 ESC firmware allows you to play music with ESC by uploading custom startup tones to each ESC. You can now form a band with the 4 motors in your quadcopter and play a cool tune when powering up your drone.
This tutorial is written for complete beginners, which explains how to connect BLHeli_32 ESC’s to computer through “FC pass-through”, and how to use BLHeliSuite_32 to flash BLHeli32 firmware and configure ESC settings.
The Holybro Tekko32 F3 65A ESC is probably by far one of the most premium ESC on the FPV market for 4S and 6S setup. It features “Metal Capped” MOSFET’s that have superior cooling ability, with an incredible 65A continuous current rating.
iFlight has been teasing me with these tempting SucceX 60A ESC with “Metal MOSFET”. Finally they arrived and I get to try them! Is 60A an overkill? What does metal fet do? let’s find out.
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.
