HobbyKing 12A BlueSeries Brushless Speed Controller

HobbyKing 12A BlueSeries Brushless Speed Controller

Its no “Mystery” where these ESCs are made, now they are available to you at HobbyKing prices.

Built with imported N-Channel mosFET's and an ultra fast Atmel MCU & heartbeat make this a high performance ESC with excellent sync capabilities.
Programmable via an R/C controller.It allows you to program all functions to fit your specific needs, which makes it efficient and user friendly.
 
Features:
Extremely low internal resistance
Super smooth and accurate throttle linearity
Over heat and over-load protection
Auto shut down when signal is lost or radio interference becomes severe for more than 2 seconds
Supports high RPM motors
Power arming protection (prevents the motor from accidentally running when switched ON)
New Advanced programming software
 
Programming features:
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)
Soft acceleration start ups (for delicate gearbox and helicopter applications)
Governor mode(for helicopter applications)
Motor rotation( clockwise\counterclockwise)
Switching frequency
Low voltage cutoff type (power reduction orirnmediate shutdown)

Brake:  off
Battery type Detect:  LiPo with Automatic Cell
Low voltage cutoff threshold:  Medium (3.0V/65%)
Timing setup:  Automatic
Soft Acceleration Start Up:  Medium
Governor mode :  OFF
Frequency :  8kHz

A problem is if you power up your ESC with the throttle NOT all the way down, you can start the programming sequence. (Same as the HK blue ESC's) . So this problem is fixed by "default parameter" PS: A program-card is a good investment! BUT-T ****- Then the last problem: if you make the throttle-up mistake and lower the throttle after the first 4 beeps, that is the throttle-calibration is messed up.

My esc just beeps quickly, won't spin the motor. Any ideas?

Try looking at page 9-10 in the manual "Trouble Shooting". (Throttle stick or connections?)

Is it possible to flash these with BLheli on 1 wire (bootloader) or do you need an atmel programmer for this?
 chris 3 points
you have to flash them the hard way first, then once it has the bootloader then you can one wire them, i just finished, i did it the hard way by hand soldering to the atmel chips and then flashing with an arduino

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.
