"I have used castle ESC for a long time, even both their esc that were still version 1 and got replaced to whatever revision but had to ship it back (Im outside US so its a bit expensive). IMHO unless castle will replace the existing HW and then…"
"Magnus, TC made those ESC but only for himself, he said that useless to create such ESC since most Hobbywing OEM will perform well with simonk firmware. OPESC still no word when they will release but I know they are testing. Sadly like ESC32 still…"
"Davey, have you checked TC's AfroESC he dont mind someone building it, its opensoruced but not based on STM32 ARM but rather the normal ATMega8. no one had it yet except TC but the good thing is it supports Simonk's custom firmware.On the other hand…"
"@Max, thanks for that its the ESC themselves are always getting harder to buy (mostly out of stock). Been following that thread too..but thanks for the link. Just in my opinion if someone got an open source multirotor targeted ESC and ready for easy…"
"Quite interesting to see this ESC. I myself is needing of an ESC that has higher PWM rates tho custom firmware is available its quite hard to get the reliable ones with the ready pin out for programming/flashing. Hope this is open source."
"Jason here is the CLI test for IMU and the new setup show.
first test was still, 2nd was I was twiching it
After this test I noticed something weird, on CLI mode (switch to CLI) the LED on APM is always green as long as I can…"
Jason, not sure if this is a bug or what:
- Just installed v50 ( I had a successful flight in v48 just a few hours ago and been in that version for a while with good results except waypoints)
- Noticed on mission planner there's a lot a modes but…"
"I love flying them both but the DJI is intended for more steady video shooting (hobby grade not pro shooting). Arducopter can do it but the code is not yet ready for an all-rounder IMHO. Its still a great flight controller and I have 3 of them on…"
"Paul, my path was reverse I have the arducopter first now I have the DJI WKM. Both have their strengths and weaknesses. Arducopter is not as easy as the DJI, basically the WKM can run on default settings without violent oscillation or strong tipping…"
"now i want to load the the git version. One of my quad has no sonar (removed intentionally) since v42. v50 looks promising. If only the rain will stop in the morning and in the afternoon which is when i do my testing."
