    ESCs will not arm

    My friend picked me up 2 planes and 3 eMax BLHeli 12a ESCs at Flite Fest last year. Finally built them and they won't arm with my Hitec Optima or Minima receivers. Seems this was a known issue back in 2015 (https://github.com/bitdump/BLHeli/issues/77). I tried 1-wire programming them with a...

    Full beacon strength BLHeli?

    Hi everyone. Just wondering weather there are downsides of using full beacon strength. I am running littlebee 20A, damped light medium high timing. Seems to me that if I loose my quad, and cant get the buzzer going, I would want the best chance of finding it again. Thanks.

    CHECK SOLDER JOINTS ON 30AMP BLHeli ESC's if you use them.

    Have you ever had a BLHeli ESC, ever had it on a craft and lost power in-flight? Last week I had that happen, the result was a hard impact crash, it did cause some damage; to my FT Explorer CORE but over all nothing I can't fix.. Had It been on my racer250 quad or one of my other craft, well...

    Simonk aficionados..

    Until recently, I have only used Plush ESCs equipped with SiLabs chips running BLHeli firmware. Using the BLHeli tool, I'm able to adjust all kinds of parameters (motor timing, PWM frequency, min/max throttle, ect.) but my favorite feature was being able to change motor direction. I really liked...
