Can I use this adapter to flash my Mystery 12A with BlHeli? Did not find any video or manual how to set the BlHeli GUI. Any hint highly appreciated.
 TimJC 12 points
I just flashed my 12A Blue Series to BLHeli on Monday, using this adapter and a USBASP (PRODUCT ID: 381000147). Google "Oscar Liang Blue Series" for more instructions on flashing. He uses an Arduino, instead of a USBASP, but the process is mostly the same. Assuming you are looking to do this for a 250 size miniquad, you just need to change "PWM frequency/damped" to "damped light" after flashing the BLHeli "Multi" firmware.

I've registered a complaint with HK about the incompatibility between the connectors (ATMEL flashing tool & USBasp) - if others could register annoyance as well, the product might be shipped with the adapter in future.

Are you meaning both plugs are female? looks that way in pics I'm seeing. Is there an adapter?

Is this tool can be used to flash program turnigy multistar 10a esc v1
 RonRC 4068 points
Ahmad, Not sure, you will have to remove the heat shrink from one of the ESCs to see if it is the large Atmel chip or the small one. This tool fits the large Atmel chip but not the small one. Hope this helps and Happy flying!

Alright, this thing is legitimately awesome. A similar setup is gonna run you $160-200 from a renowned international manufacturer. Hint: the group of 3 closely-spaced pins on one corner face *away* from the dot on the ATMega chip. I could otherwise see no alignment features, so I hope this helps. The 10-pin ISP header is rarer nowadays, and I had to make a crossover cable to work with a 6 pin AVR ISPmkII unit. I know it's supposed to work with a USBASP, but I've also no luck getting the damned USBASP to work *at all*.

I've found this tool to be very useful, saves a lot of time that would have to be spent wiring a port on an ESC that you plan to reprogram. You have to keep firm perpendicular pressure to make sure the connections remain connected.
