The atmel 8 is ok, but atmel 48 IC is NOK... Waiting for your issue., or hex file Hobbyking....

Hi Grezoo, I reflash all Red Brick with SimonK. Even the ones for fixed wing. The seem to run way better after that. Only problem is with fixed wing, you either need to put a low voltage buzzer, blue LEDs, or know when to land when the plane slows down. All the best and Happy flying!

Really bad ESC. Stock firmware - not working. Can randomly freeze. And no one custom firmware, in case it is based on atmega48v.

Alexander, I flashed mine with SimonK and it works great in my F-22 but I have to land when I hear it slow down. I would recommend getting a buzzer for it to avoid damaging batteries.

It is nice to hear, that your RB50A with ATmega8. But mine based on ATmega48V and can not be flashed.

I bought this esc after downloading the manual from the Files section and making sure it has the Brake function required for my Sailplane. 1- The manual that comes with the ESC is completely different from the downloaded manual: only 3 programming options versus the extended option fron the downloaded manual 2- The manual specifies 3 time beep per option. The Esc only has 2 time beep per option. 3- The manual shows how to change the Brake (third and last option). There is NO BRAKE. 4- I now have doubt whether the Battery selection option 2 for LiPo is working. I won't risk a fire is this option is not activated as per my programming as in the Brake option In conclusion: misrepresentation of product. Value is bad since Price Shipping $ and it cannot be used.

Tried this one this yesterday: very deceiving. I measured 44 amps at home and during the flight, after a while, the engine stops with a noise. Lowering throttle to minimum then back to original position the engine restarts, but this is not healthy. I have been borrowed today a HK 40/50 Amps without BEC and it worked fine in the same conditions.

I checked the programming option to be 200pcnt sure : very simplified. Only 3 choices : NimH, Lipo and Break. The provided owner's manual was not so clear but fits the ESC possibilites.

I did not check user's reviews before purchasing, I should have.. Only 10 USD, but for me 10 USD thrown away...

Can't give this zero score, if I could I would. Connected it up servo worked OK but motor would not turn..... Tested the motor with another ESC so my red brick ESC is duff. As like others mention on here not worth the postage to return.... but I'd steer well clear of these in future.

Very fast delivery to Austria (11 days), but: like other people have written already this is a faulty esc. In my case it never operated, only three beeps in the beginning. I have a lot of esc, the turnigy (plush) esc are the better choice. Not worth the postage to return.

Bought it as a spare for my main Turnigy Trust 55A. It stopped working after a couple of flights whereas the Turnigy is working non-stop. I won't be buying any more Red Bricks, I should have supposed why it had such a large heatsink > bad design (or I got a faulty one)
