Quote from: XH558 on Tuesday,January 08, 2013, 23:54:52 I';ve surgically removed the heatshrink from my 4 escs ...
Quote from: XH558 on Wednesday,January 09, 2013, 14:32:31 Oh no I tend to be much more ';surgical'; with my scalpel knife I';ve cut through just the heatshrink over the chip and made a little ';access door'; .... had to be careful not to go too deep and damage the board ... but then that';s what fettling is all about ::)
Quote from: teslahed on Wednesday,January 09, 2013, 15:11:37 That sounds like quite a good way to do it - cutting a little square out over where you know the chip to be then putting a bit of tape over the square hole after you';ve flashed them. I bet a sharp scalpel blade makes accurate cuts easier than trying to use a stanley knife. I quite like the look of my new transparent heatshrink and some people like to get brightly coloured stuff and even use different colours front and back to help with orientation.If you cut the heatshrink totally off the ESC you can access the solder pads on the ESC circuit board itself - this can make soldering new wires to the speed controller that are the perfect length easier than soldering wire to wire, sometimes. It just depends on how you prefer to do things really.
Quote from: XH558 on Wednesday,January 09, 2013, 23:54:57 I didn';t know on the first esc I had to do some exploratory ';searching'; ... then the other 3 were a doddle I prefer to do things as best I can - or at least ';have a go'; - if it goes tits up then at least I learned for the next time ... +1 for the memory banks
Quote from: Smeagol on Friday,January 11, 2013, 22:28:03 I went the manual solder wire way to flash mine, and now a couple of them may never be reflashed due to lack of padding.
Quote from: QuadGod on Saturday,January 12, 2013, 12:57:30 If you get the HK Socket Firmware Flashing Tool that teslahed mentioned, you';ll still be able to flash even without pads to solder to, as no soldering is required! It';s a superb bit of kit - I flashed 4 ESCs yesterday in less than 5 mins. Worth every penny!
QuoteGo to the downloads thing https://github.com/sim-/tgy/downloadsBut no reference to ';tp.hex';
QuoteBUT - when it arrived it had the lead already attached to it for flashing boards and I can see that 6 cable ribbon lead has to come off so I can attach the ESC flashing gizmo.
Quote from: XH558 on Tuesday,January 15, 2013, 20:18:47 Ok - machine gun replies .... thanks all I take it that is ';CAN';T'; attach a 10 pin to a 6 pin Gaz :)So ... ordered the 10 pin to 6 pin adapter as linked to by Gaz then realised it';s bl**dy China again - so another wait .... the programmer from HK just took over 3 weeks When that arrives and I get it hooked up I';ll have another go using the other tips and links provided ..... What a game .... however .... soldier on ......Stand down troops ::)
