Quote from: eyeflying on Tuesday,November 06, 2012, 17:04:56 I';ve just received some Turnigy MultiStar ESC';s to try out. Its claimed that they "offer excellent performance when used in Multi-rotor applications"They support refresh rates up to 499Hz.Just wondering whether anyone here has had any experience with them??[attachimg=1]
Quote from: teslahed on Tuesday,November 06, 2012, 17:12:54 Have you used ESCs flashed with the SimonK firmware? If so I';ll be interested to hear how you find the two compare as the SimonK flashed ESCs are the best I';ve found for multirotors.
Quote from: Jumpy07 on Tuesday,November 06, 2012, 17:23:59 they look like a quality piece of kit.. have you taken the heatshrink off and taken any pics ?
Quote from: eyeflying on Tuesday,November 06, 2012, 17:32:26 Yes, I use ESC';s with SimonK Firmware and I agree with you -best for multirotors but I may be wrong but isn';t the main purpose of SimonK Firmware to speed up the response (refresh) rate? These MultiStar ESC';s claim seem to have a fast response anyway. In any event, they can easily be flashed as they are fitted with an ATmega MCU.
Quote from: teslahed on Tuesday,November 06, 2012, 17:55:19 The main difference between these and the old Hobbyking F30As seems to be that the F30As use all N FETs whereas the MultiStar ESC';s use a mix of N and P FETs. Mixed FET designs are more prone to drift as they heat up more in use then just N FET ESCs do (according to what I';ve been reading over on rcgroups anyway).
Quote from: dp106 on Sunday,February 17, 2013, 19:26:57 So am I going to be ok with these? I';m not planning to flash these to start with, having to get my head around enough with just building and configuring everything. Hopefully they will still be good enough for me to begin with?
