I bought a USB Flasher but it has only a 6 pin connector and this tool has 10. An good ideas on how to connect the two? Is there a cheat sheet on the pinout of this tool I bought? If not I guess I"ll have to figure out where each connector goes to each pin, then create an adapter or so forth.

Can this be used to flash Multistar ESCs? 45A in particular.
 Thomas 28 points
As i have said/written: there is a list on the web with all ESC´*s you can flash with it! But i think the Multistar are not for flashing with simonk. Hope that helps!

(Under "Files" there is a List of compatible ESC`S too)

Waqqas, Yes it can. The multistar are in the list and I flashed 4 of the 15A variety to put on my foamy quad ufo. pretty much any ESC that has the standard size Atmel chip can be flashed with this too. 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.
