mamakin, do a search for "free google sheets". Select the first listing. In the center of the page you will see [Go to Google Sheets], click on it. There is only one there that can be selected: [ESC specs for Simonk / BLHeli FW flash] owned by Thomas B., select it and it will show the associated firmware needed for a particular ESC. Hope this helps and Happy flying!

Do I need a 10 pin to 6 pin adapter to connect this with the USBasp programmer below?
ors.html Or
is there enough clearance on the programmer to compensate for this exact tool?

Newbie: Just ordered the and the USB connector - but even a Google search does not tell me how to connect and where to connect to update- reflash?? Can anybody put me wise please?

You need the USBasp programmer (Product ID: 381000147) to flash the controller as you can see in the product description. This is just a cable to make the programming of the TQFP controllers easier.

I did eventually get it all sorted out - although KKtool will not do anything at stops at fuze fault. On iMac it seems to run OK but cannot check fuze I think was the error - but read its irritation to see it but not a problem! BUT having spent hours yesterday (23/11/15) building uip onto a 450 frame - Open pilot doe not get to spin any motors - so trying to find out why. That and battling with a Devo 10 that will not bind! Thanks for your reply.

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.
