In this article we will explain what ESC is, and the factors that affect your choices. We will look into some of the fundamental considerations that beginners should know when buying ESC’s for mini quads (aka racing drones).
Artur shares his experience pairing KISS flight controller with non-KISS ESC’s (BLHlie) on a Mini Quad.
Here I explain how to flash/update BLHeli_S firmware on your ESC using Cleanflight FC Pass-through.
Many thanks to Aikon for sending me their new SEFM 30A ESC for the tests, which runs the latest ESC firmware – BLHeli_S.
Anton from CapeFPV team shared with us how to get better and more linear throttle response, by doing ESC (BLheli) and flight controller (Cleanflight) calibration and configuration.
In this article we will discuss some of the latest ESC development and hot topics: BLHeli_S firmware, hardware PWM and 32 bit MCU. This article is created by Adriel Perkins.
Occasionally ESC signal wire is wrapped around a little doughnut ring, for example on the Hobbyking 30A ESC. So What does the ring do and is it necessary?
The DYS XM20A is a relatively new speed controller for multirotors. The processor used by XM20A is the Silabs F396 which can run at higher speed than the previous generation ESC’s of F330 (for example the FVT/ZEUS Littlebee 20A or RG20A).
Flyduino kindly sent us a set of the new KISS 24A ESC Race Edition (RE) to try out. In this post we will go through the key features, performance testing, and finally some guides on how to use these KISS 24A ESC.
Just a quick post on how to change bootloader on an ESC, from SimonK to BLHeli. Or if you are not sure what bootloader you have got, you can just flash it anyway to make sure.
Do you know that you can now change settings on your ESC in BLHeliSuite, via your flight controller? That’s right, no complicated programming tool, USB linker or Arduino. All you need to do is just connect your flight controller, and you can flash firmware and change settings on your ESC!
There have been so many reports of ESC catching fire the past 3, 4 months, it’s unreal! And I burnt an ESC yesterday, there was so much smoke and flame it was horrifying! I am trying to find out why this is happening so frequently.
