On two occasions after I used this ESC for a little while, it seems to go into a weird state where if I turn up the throttle at all the prop just stutters around very slowly. I tried connecting a fresh battery, but the same thing happened. After waiting a while it goes back to normal operation. I thought it happened because I got some snow/water in the motor the first time, but the second time it happened the plane remained pretty dry. What does this mean?

I'm using these on my first quad. Three of the four seem to work fine, but the fourth restarts every time i throttle up. It also warmed the motor up pretty well. I've tested the motor with the other ESC and the motor is fine. Is this a symptom of a bad ESC or am I doing something wrong. I'm using the Turnigy Multistar 2209-980Kv 14Pole Multi-Rotor Outrunner motor. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

You can use the Hobbyking programming card. This will work perfectly.

To me the firmware is not very good for multicopters. You can re-flash this ESC with SimonK firmware. It makes a BIG difference.

I wrote a simple guide to do that on the discussion forum of the HK SS 25-30.

Im new to esc.. Why do we need a programming card?
 Gary 3736 points
A programming card makes it easier to change the settings of the speed controller. It will come with some de-fault settings already programmed in, usually voltage cut-off is set for lipo, brake off, auto-timing etc, so you can use it straight away without using a card if the de-fault settings are ok for your use.

Dont know if these have reverse volt protection but I may have reversed the polarity and killed it as it smoked a bit and something glowed under the heat shrink when I applied power.

When I took the heat shrink off and had a look, four of the terminals on one of the chips were soldered together and some of the chips are well cooked. So I dont know if I killed it or it was a gonna from the factory. Still at this price not a great loss.

Nice and cheap ESC. Very basic, suffers from the low pass filter on the PPM input. If you want to use it to fly a multocopter, I recommend you modify it for higher PPM update rate. I made a guide here : www.link t t p s : / / www.link

I have 4 of these on a quadcopter, with Hextronik DT750 motors, HK V2 flight control board and a 3S 2200 40C battery. They work great. Very easy to stick program. Will buy these again.
