    I just investigated a failure on my newly bought HK Spec FPV250. This is what happened: I successfully ran through my first battery, fiddled with the settings, hovered it a couple of times. All seemed great. Then I disconnected the battery and switched to the next - nothing happened. No LEDs...

So I decided to flash the Steveis KK2.1.5 Firmware (v1.17S1 Lite). After that, it flew a little more...

    Simonk aficionados..

    Until recently, I have only used Plush ESCs equipped with SiLabs chips running BLHeli firmware.

I really liked...
