Brake setting (we recommend using brake for only folding props applications)
Battery type(LiPo or NiCd/NiMh)
Low voltage cutoff setting
Factory default setup restore
Timing settings (to enhance ESC efficiency and smoothness)

I DEFINITELY DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ESC FOR MULTICOPTER OR MINICOPTER, ITS REALY HARD TO PROGRAMING, FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE I PREFER LUMENIER.

Javier , I do not agree at all it takes seconds to flash these esc with SimonK using the Atmega Socket Tool , also 3 times less cost that Lumenier!! www.link

You don´*t even need Atmega socket tool. It has bootloader and you can use tunigy flash tool or afro flash tool connected to reciever plug. Connect via USB. Very simple. Blheli suite 13.1 as program

Can I use it with 4S ? It says 3S on it and HK says 2-4S ...

Can i use the HK flash tool for this esc? I've successfully used it for the 30amp escs. Was wondering if it will work similarly with these. Thank You

yes I have done it.

I got three of these and one of them started smoking and melted a hole in the heatshrink case thing, it smells off eletrical burning. and ive read down ubit and this has happend before. Finger crossed it hasnt bugered the kk2 board. And it aint the battery coz it is a 3cell lipo and works fine with the other two esc's. Why they doing this? Fix this hobbyking!!!!!!!!
 Klaus 11 points
It could be because it has a SBEC (switching BEC). You shouldnt connect more than one UBEC or SBEC onto one 5v power rail, which you automatically do if you have a kk2 board. The kk2 board uses the BEC on Cannel 1 only for the board and the other ones are all connected together for servos, the reciever etc. Cut the red cable in the servo line of the esc on all except the one on Channel 1 and one from the other channels. (If you are building a tricopter with it, cut the red cable on the servo line from the esc on channel 2 or the one on channel 3) It could also just be a short or you connected it to the battery with the wrong polarity.

it was the channel 1 one tho... if thats what you mean

I like the Mystery and Tgy Plush ESCs as they are well specified and have good BEC capabilities too

I think 18AWG wire used for the power leads would have been a better choice for ensuring efficient current flow.

Excellent speed control. I use it with a Turnigy 2730-1500kv running 2 and 3 cell lipo on small,< 32 wing span, 3D planes. I have run up to 4 micro, 5g, servos on the BEC with no problems.
