This control has very upset me. I bought seven of these controls. One was stored as a spare part. Since this controller had a very bad reaction, I decided to update on Simonk firmware. After I found out through the search engine how to do it, I started right away. There are two different Types i read on rc boards, so be carefull if you want to update. Do a research on the Internet.
I read an article on the Internet that a user switches to Simonk. He had six of these controls, three were successful flashed with SimonK, three were "bricked" after process.
I thought to myself, no risk no fun. Now i have three working ESC with SimonK, four of them bricked during flash. That's a bad record.
I recommend not to flash these ESC's on Simonk. The Chance to "brick" it is more then 50%.
I recommend to buy Speed controller which already shipped with SimonK Firmware. Just calibrate your throttle and you are ready to go.
I am not new to this area. I have flashed some AVR in the past. I have also HK ESC's successfully flashed without problems.
Dont waste your time and money. Dont buy Budget stuff and try to upgrade it.
Hello, it does NOT come with Bullet connector or Battery plug. That is because my user chose to solder it straight to the motor so there is no risk of disconnection during flight, and as there are many sizes of bullets used.

I've used two of these in my CL-415 Canadair driving turnigy L2210-1650 motors. These are a perfect match for the Canadair. Huge power for take offs, low current for cruising around. I've plugged these into a Y plug so both are powering the rx with no problems. Very highly recommended. Flying on 1 2200-3s 20c turnigy lipo.

Calibration should be set 1. UP the throttle stick to maximum 2. connect the battery to esc 3. beep.beep.beep~ (2seconds to throttle down to a minimum) 4. Complete the calibration set
