Supports high RPM motors
Power arming protection (prevents the motor from accidentally running when switched ON)
New Advanced programming software
 
Programming features:
Brake setting (we recommend using brake for only folding props applications)
Battery type(LiPo or NiCd/NiMh)
Low voltage cutoff setting
Factory default setup restore
Timing settings (to enhance ESC efficiency and smoothness)
Soft acceleration start ups (for delicate gearbox and helicopter applications)
Governor mode(for helicopter applications)
Motor rotation( clockwise\counterclockwise)

Hey guys, do this esc support D2822/17 Brushless Outrunner 1100kv motor(PRODUCT ID: D2208-17-1100 ) 7x4.5 Three Blade(PRODUCT ID: 157000042)? Would this be a good choice for a f330 quad?
 Frank 2 points
It 'supports' the motor, in that it will work. The motor's max allowed current draw according to the specs is 10A, so it could work, but doesn't leave a large margin for servo's. Three-bladed propellers for a given size cause more current draw than two-bladed propellers. All in all, I would recommend going to a 15-20A ESC. It would work fine for a quad. You can read about someone building a quad with your motors and a larger frame here: www.link

Err, link doesn't work. That's good security, but slightly annoying. :-) Search for "flitetest lessons learned quadcopters" on Google.

If I want to flash these with SimonK, which ***Nfet do I choose?

Hi alna1957. There are many who are experiencing sync problems on the latest versions of SimonK! My Cobra engines do not work with the latest version! I use BS-NFET V2013-05-15 That works flawlessly! ps .... all the other girls that I fly with use the same version. Hugs from me

BLHeli works VERY well too. Some have stated that even with the proper Simon K syncing issues can still occur. The interface for BLHeli is really nice. Once you get the bootloader on there all you need is a Turnigy USB Linker for further updates. The bootloader can be installed a number of ways with the ATMEL cable and USB AVR sold here being a common one.

BLHeli is available for SILabs and ATMEL and receives updated much more often.

For everyone out there thinking these are the same as the mystery 12a they ARE NOT. These are a nfet esc and the mystery's are now a p/nfet. Search for the rapid esc database and you'll see they take different firmware. Hobbyking bs12a are bs-nfet.hex and mystery's are bs.hex . The mystery esc's are not happy running high kv motors like the zmr/rcx 1804 2400kv, sunnsky 2204 2300kv or the t-motor 2300kv they loose sync. USE THIS VERSION not the mystery's these are cheaper and better without sync issues.

I like the Mystery and Tgy Plush ESCs as they are well specified and have good BEC capabilities too

I think 18AWG wire used for the power leads would have been a better choice for ensuring efficient current flow.

Excellent speed control. I use it with a Turnigy 2730-1500kv running 2 and 3 cell lipo on small,< 32 wing span, 3D planes. I have run up to 4 micro, 5g, servos on the BEC with no problems.
