"The only benefit would be that the oscillator speed would drift less with temperature.
The oscillators in the Atmega8 and similar parts aren't all that great, and slow down significantly with temperature. This means that the pulse lengths appear to…"
"Well, it sounded like from your previous post that the firmware update had resolved the issue, but that you didn't want to try it since it might cause damage. That is fair. I think I have enough Afros for testing, but not that particular motor. I'll…"
"Paul, you sound defeated. :) Does it stop accelerating part-way up the throttle, or just seem not enough at what should be full? Maybe try with a servo tester or direct with the radio and see if it's any different? Maybe it's just endpoint…"
I can't control the EMAX firmware, since I have nothing to do with them. They just borrowed my name for marketing. It sounds like that is a bug that should be fixed in their software, though.."
The ESC always uses the input immediately following the low-going edge, unless the pulse is of an invalid length (too short or long).
Note that the EMAX units just borrowed my name for marketing but have nothing to do with me. They've never…"
Sorry to hear about your troubles. I'm curious what the problem might be. What motors and battery are you using? Could you maybe post a video of the sync issue occurring, preferably with LEDs on the Afro visible?
I'm not sure what the…"
"Maybe try a servo tester to each ESC to make sure the outputs are matching? If not, you will want to calibrate every ESC from the same source. Otherwise, the problem must be with the flight controller (perhaps a trim problem?)."
"Hello! It looks a lot to me like an RCTimer ESC, which is an ATmega8-based Hobbywing clone, likely compatible with the original tgy.hex. I'm guessing by the heat shrink, wire, and sticker being very close to http://0x.ca/sim/esc/RCTimer_CBS002/…"
"Hello! You mean with the stick high, it just makes three increasing beeps, and stops? The only explanation for that would be that either the pulse is never going longer than 1460µs (PROGRAM_RC_PULS), or that calibration is turned off in the source…"
