"@xemone that's a really neat PDB.  You should have no problem going from regulated 5v output straight to the IO gnd/vin pins.  If you want to be paranoid you can go in through the usb as it provides extra protection and polyfuse, but…"

"@Troy Apart from the extra cost (which sucks) getting bigger generic ESCs will give you a good solution.  Just a quick warning if the bigger drone you're thinking of in the future will have low kv motors, then pick your new ESCs really…"

"Pixhawk refreshes at 400hz maximum, so changing RC_SPEED above that value won't have any effect."

"ps - please do persevere.  a) It would be great to get the newer DJI ESCs working - the older ones worked perfectly, and b) they're great ESCs/motors, don't throw them away :) The motors should work perfectly with other ESCs, at least…"

Fnoop replied to mark bellncula's discussion Pixhawk DJI ESC Issue
"Just a quick note - this isn't a 'pixhawk' problem - the pixhawk is a bit of hardware.  It's a problem with setup of the software/firmware (px4/ardupilot) to work perfectly with these ESCs at the bottom end of the thrust…"

"I would have thought those DYS ESCs should be OK.  Just make sure you've got the latest blheli flashed and you have damping light turned OFF."

Fnoop replied to Madusha's discussion pixhawk with sync error
"It's very common for low kv motors to lose synch!  There are several factors at play, but the most important is the hardware+firmware, and the setup.  Hobbywing make well respected ESCs and do two specially for multirotor low kv…"
