Will this work with the (pretty small) 10 Amp Multistar ESCs? The chips look pretty small.

Yes, I have tried it before, just be careful when you cut the cover.

How did you do the flashing on a 10 amp multistar with this tool. As this tool don't fit them you have to make your own tool. Are you sure you've tried this please tell me how?

Hey everyone, If you have an old style flasher with 6 pins and the adapter with 10 pins follow the pin layout on the following tutorial *******wiki.openpilot****/display/Doc/Flashing Instructions The pics in the uploaded files are wrong I almost cooked my ESC and adapter, they started heating up and all.. Ill be uploading the images for the layout on which I used for this with 100% success.. They pictures of the real socket with labels. Please be careful its really easy to make a simple mistake... Kind Regards Jared

Yes, it works on ATmega88.

No, the ATMega88PA on the G-OSD is too small for this tool.

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.
