The HobbyKing Red Brick ESCs wont win first place for style, though they will take top points for simplicity and reliability. With a basic set of programming features these ESCs are a perfect solution for anyone looking for a basic yet robust speed controller.
The Red Brick ESCs have been engineered with heat dissipation in mind. featuring twin heat sinks, the Red Brick ESCs are slightly larger than many ESCs in their class, however this compromise in size is aimed at assisting to eliminate the problems associated with over heating.
Specs. Max Amps: 25A Ubec: 5v / 2A Cells: 2~3s Lipoly Size: 48mm x 8mm 26mm Weight: 20g (Inc Wires)
ashwin, you will need a USBasp device, the kkmulticopter flash tool (software interface), and the socket adapter to flash atmel chips. I've been flashing all my ESCs with SimonK for multirotors except for the ones with the smaller SiLabs chips because the socket doesnt fit on those.
Just out of the box and it wouldn't rotate my Dr Mad Thrust KV4800 motor. Tryes to turn but just gitters. I switch the wire arround still the same. The motor works on my trackstar controler just fine. Do I need to program the esc?
Harold, I had one that way too. I purchased 8, put 4 on my new quad and one was bad (did what you described. It was flashed with SimonK but still had issues. When I took it apart, the soldered ends on the outside of the chips that control the speed had shorted to one another. I pulled what appeared to be a fine wire from them which should have eliminated the short and intend to try it again soon to see if it worked. You may just want to put in a ticket on it via the "live support line". Hope this helps!
