"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 mayb…"

"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 t…"

"Nice....I envy you since I dont have the means to make one but would like to get a cheap one like ESC32 or the AfroESC which TC stop making. HerKules II is out of budget. So I am stuck in waiting :("

"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."

Jeff E replied to Paul Guggenbuehl's discussion I have a Fyetech.com Y6, I want to put in my IMU/oil-GPS pan system where do I start? in ArduCopter User Group
"Paul, not to divert you from Arducopter but I think this is what you were waiting for


 
 
The sad news is it will cost more than the DJI itself base on other forums. It will be close to MK.
 
But dont get me wrong Arducopter still fun and can do s…"

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 di…"
