The current best estimate is still for at least another couple months, though it may and likely will take longer. I can definitely say with confidence that the revised BlueESC will NOT be available within 60 days. There is a lot of development and testing work to be done, and we’ve discovered many new things during this ongoing process which allow us to improve the design and make it more reliable. However, this does take time.
At this time, we do not have an estimated date of availability of the revised BlueESC, but I stand by my previous statement that it will not be available for at least another few months, but further in the future. We know how important this product is for a lot of people, and we will be releasing it when it it ready!
The BasicESC is a solid, reliable, and proven option that is available now, so I strongly recommend using that instead presently rather than waiting. We do not recommend a wire length of more than about 2m or so between the thruster and ESC with the stock 18AWG cable, but you can extend this further if you use a heavier wire gauge to minimize voltage drop.There is not really much additional wiring to do for the BasicESC beyond attaching it to the thruster, the key difference is that the BasicESC must be inside a watertight enclosure, so this takes up a bit more space. Just like the BlueESC, you only need to provide power and PWM signal to the ESC.
