Khalif, this might help you :
This is how I flashed (certain) Atmega based ESCs with SimonK firmware : You will need : 1- USBasp AVR Programming Device for ATMEL processors (PRODUCT ID: 381000147) 2- Atmega Socket Firmware Flashing Tool (PRODUCT ID: 332000007) 3- Download the kkmulticopterflashtool (it has the most recent versions of SimonK firmware) 4- Do a google search for SimonK firmware (you will find a spreadsheet in docs.google with all the compatible Escs with photos !) 5- Remove the heatshrink wrap from your ESC. Make sure your ESC is the same as in the photo. 6- Align pin 1 dot of the socket flashing tool with the pin 1 dot of the Atmega chip. Press firmly and upload the firmware. Kkflashtool will tell you if the firmware has been successfully upgraded. Make sure you choose the firmware with the bootloader : you can then re flash your ESCs by using the 3 pin servo plug with a ESC USB programming tool (PRODUCT ID: 9171000243) without having to remove the heatshrink. 7- Get some transparent heatshrink tubing (20 mm) from here. *** Always double check that you have a compatible ESC !!!
To program it:
1) Plug you receiver AND motor in to the ESC
2) Turn on your RC transmitter and put the throttle to full.
3) Plug the battery in
It will beep once, then once again, pull the throttle on your transmitter down on the first beep to select cut out at 40% voltage, and pull it down on 2nd beep to select auto cutout.
Leave it after the first selection beeps, it will beep 2 times in a row, twice, this is the same option as above but for Nimh.
Leave it after first 2 selection beeps, it will beep 3 times in a row, twice.
Pull down the throttle on the first 3 to select ESC braking, and the second 3 beeps to select disable braking.
Hope that helps
The "programming manual" someone uploaded to the files doesn't appear to be for this ESC. And the little slip of paper with "programming instructions" that was packed with the ESC isn't too much help either. I guess I will have to buy a programming card and go through all that BS to try to get these working right. Ugh. So much for a simple, generic ESC!
Come on Sac, that's not a real answer. I have no trouble programming this ESC!
hello, excellent esc, we use this for our home made zagi's, now we gonne make 10 more for club combat!! nice and good esc, strong enough,and lightweight! and most of all the price is verry good! cheaper yo can't get! greetz from belgium, thanks hobby king!

Good ESC. Works very smooth with 2610 motor. There's one trick about it: it has 2 heat sinks. So if you plan to glue it inside edf duct it's not a good idea because the other heat sink which is under the sticker (for BEC I believe) will overheat. It has to be placed such that air circulates from both sides.
