Does anyone know if you could use these to power motors, on a micro quad?If they don't have a bec how would a person go about getting power to a controller board,if you used a four channel micro receiver?
Since this will be a build that runs on 1S, you can simply feed the receiver and flight controller with power directly from the battery. I'm working on a micro quad that use these ESCs and I will power the FC and Rx with the flight lipo, as extra insurance I will use a 5v regulator between the lipo and receiver which will boost the voltage to 5v if the lipo sags under load. These ESCs are quite slow, so make sure to flash them with BLHeli. All you need to do is an Arduino Nano to do this. Google for guides from Oddcopter.
As for the voltage regulator, it weighs less than one gram and can be bought at Polulu. Simply google for "5v voltage regulator polulu". Re-flashing the ESCs with BLHeli is quite simple. On the face of the ESC you can see two exposed pads, two wires need to touch those and a third needs to touch or be soldered pad behind the yellow/orange component in the picture above. (By behind I meant the side towards the 3-phase motor connection) If you just find the guide you'll see how easy it is.
No wire included, You have to solder it yourself. The pads that are marked - (negative), (positive) and S (signal) is going to the reciver. The 3 on the oposite side is going to the motor. You must have a small soldering tip to be able to do it properly.
This is an ESC (electronic speed controller) it runs the brush-less motor only. The receiver runs the servos and if you do not have one HK has some nice micro receivers. I just sent for the orange micro for DSM2. For set up see the files tab above.
Does it work with 2s ? (without connecting the red/plus wire to the receiver, the receiver would have its power from elsewhere). If not, what would be the max voltage supported ? (I guess limitations is from MCU, not from FETs)
I would like to know if i can use the esc for a ship or car (foreward / stop / return funktion)? I need only 2 ch in the micro ship. (motor rudder) I have the micro ar 6400 dsm2 system from $pektrum. Does this work together, as mentioned in the discussion before? Mani thanks for ani information! Rene from Switzerland
Various firmwares exist, but it is a quite a work to get one in. And this thing is really tiny, suitable for submicro models and motors - I guess you would be better with Plush 10A or perhaps 6A or so, (needs firmware relash as well to get reverse), for any small but not really submicro class toy car or ship.
I had found all infos about flashing Silabs versions of various ESCs already, including this one. I will try to programm this using arduino as it is cheaper than usb stick. Reason is that it do not start my motors well, and perhaps the possible reverse to use it in micro car/ship.
Possibly: you'll have solder bothe the motor and the plug/lead for the RX system you use.
The "- s" pads asre to be connected to the RX system while the 3 unlabled pads on the other side are to be connected to the brushless motor (any order ... if it spins the wrong way just swap any 2 connections to the motor and it will spinn the other way)
a while. hopefully soon. ive been watching this for over a month. try back ordering if you really want them. some items are only in stock for a few hours.
thats what i do. you can always call up HK and cancel and order something else.
linda, if you want fast shipping, you should have bought from USA. bsd micro usualy has this stuff in stock- for 250% price. tho its fast, and its domestic. stuff from china is cheap, but costs lots of time. a good thing to remember.
yea so far everything i have ordered from here i super cheap and decent quality but when it comes to customer service thats definetly not their forte!I paid for some items through paypal and they messed it up and sent my order but took off batteries instead of adding them.Which i had payed for then still charged me.I even talked to a rep and made sure the other person did it right and two different people said they were in the order.Turns out they wernt.they did nothing to fix it so im disputing thru paypal.Prices are good but im sticking to **********s.the only thing i will buy from here anymore is batteries until somone else gets the turnigy nano techs
Nothing more than that it is a part in the serie "2.4Ghz SuperMicro Systems" that includes servos (that work with 35/40/72 and other mHz system) and recivers, that is small and lite. This controller does work with other system too, not only 2,4gHz.
Iam trying to assemble the correct ESC,RX, & servos for a Stryker F27 Micro Jet.I have identified the Rx as X8R6M6Ch by Assam & the 1.7grm micro servos. However Iam unsure of the ESC to use. The specifications with the plane recommend a Specktrum DSM2 Ultra Micro RX & Esc. Has Hobby King got something similar. Your advice & recommendations would be appreciated.
Joseph, make sure your micro liner servos come with the standard servo connector for your ASSAM RX (HK does carry these). Otherwise you'll need to convert the micro JST connector to standard connector.
Very, very close. The whole thing is about the size of my little finger's fingernail. You will need a very fine soldering iron tip and perhaps some magnifying goggles for this one if you don't have great eyesight.
Not sure able the firmware, but i can attest to the HK XP 3A being a better and smoother ESC. This ESC though non programmable, is able to handle higher current spikes than the TGY and HK. It is also not friendly for high KV motors. (i.e. due to timing/pulse issues, the motor must be hand started)
Andreas, it comes marked. White cable to the ~, red cable to , black cable to -. Motor cables go to the three holes, solder them on the position you need for the motor to spin to the correct direction.
It's very likely this ESC will draw the current from the UBEC.
thanks for the fast answer, does "the esc will draw the current from the ubec" mean i need an extra ubec?? or just solder in a connector to the red and black cable an it will work? (or will kill my reciever?)
You will need to source power to the receiver. Ergo, add a Lipo with an ubec, or simply plug the LiPo onto the receiver if it supports the voltage.
1S only, remember that! Also, your receiver will need to support working under low voltages. A capacitor is recommended to avoid power blackouts under acceleration.
I ran one with a nanolite 6ch board and a C0EXL brushless motor, had to install a voltage booster to keep 5v going to the receiver. worked ok with a 1S 160Mah but when I connected it to a 1S 750Mah it smoked a chip on the ESC. either a motor wire became loose or the battery had too much amps for this little ESC.
This little brushless esc works great. I am using it with 1 lipo cell on the AP03 4000kv motor for a rubber model conversion. No problems so far.
Used with HobbyKing 1608 Brushless Outrunner 5900KV and LiPo 1S. Transistors was warm after static test at full throttle. My recommendation is: place it to air flow for cooling.

Nice jewel, does his job well, smooth acceleration, good linearity, and good soldering areas (could be a little bigger, there is enough space on the board) and in case of burning out the fets they are easy to change but for the price ....be aware if better fets are coming on the market

Works great with a Spektrum 6400 and 2g outrunner on 1s. Easy to solder wires on with a nice small tip iron.
Check the manual in the files tab for how to set the throttle range, by default mine wouldn't completely stop until the range was reset.

used this with a HK 2 gram motor. got 18.3 grams of thrust as a tractor using GWS 2508.
great ESC, will be getting more.
