Hey Friz,

I would look out for shops that buy the ESC´s from HK or the manufacturer that HK buys their ESC´s from and then eventually look out for any other shops that sell ESC which are the same as the Plush 18s but only have a different sticker/logo on them.

Here in Germany I know there is such a shop that buys the ESC´s from HK´s manufacture and sell the ESC´s with the name Dymond Smart but they are actually the same as the Turnigies.

Hope I could help you there.

Hey Fritz,
I understood that the 18A and 30A esc's from RCTimer are suitable as well. They can be programmed with the Turnigy progran card. Always in stock and fast & cheap shipping.
Good luck!
Burg.

Only things you need is this and this

It seems a bit complicated but when you study Johntra's link carefully it will work like a charm ;-)

You don´t even need the adapter from 10 Pin to 6 Pin

On Davids website he shows a little trick how you can save your money on that.

Just look at the same link to rcexplorer.se above posted by Johntra!

That's true Anas, but for euro 2,99 incl shipping I (knowing myself ;-) decided to not take the risk for connecting the wiring wrong and probably ruining the programmer and/or contr board ..

Don't know Fritz but I got the eBay version from China in a small bubble envelope within a few days. At least, faster then RCTimer can get the esc's to you.

From China to netherlands in a few days? It usually takes HK 2 weeks to Germany! That is really impressive.

I still need a USB ISP as well. Do you think that something like this would be available in a normal electronics store in town, that sells all kinds of, well yeah, as the name says electronics?

Anas, i asked to ship it per normal postal services but per express. So not as a package. And they did! Cause I wanted it fast, to flash the HK boards for tricopter. I have not seen these (simple version) devices in the EU, and certainly not for those prices. It als worked for flashing the KK boards (black).

I am not sure but what I am sure about is that this is a box that contains all items inside it to solder up that programmer for youself.

If you want to be on the safe side just follow David´s Instructions. They are very clear

Click me gently :D

I don't know Fritz. Seems like a lot of additional work and money with the risk it will not work. I would go for the el cheapo ebay alternatives. This will deff work. Good luck!
