Do you recommend using esc different from yours? I’ve read a few topics about it and guess it’s a little bit problematic.
The Basic ESC R3 has proven very reliable in our experience, what topics or issues are you referring to?
You can use any brushless sensorless ESC rated for at least ~25 A constant with our thrusters.
Hey @adam does your Basic ESC R3 still use the SimonK opensource firmware or is it something proprietary? Do you opensource your firmware?
The Basic ESC R3 used the open source BlHeli_S firmware. There is more information in the product description and technical details.The SimonK firmware was used on the R1 and R2 Basic ESCs.
@adam Thanks! Sorry, I didn’t realize it said it right in the description. Can I ask why you changed from SimonK to BIHeli_S?
Its just what the ESC comes loaded with from the supplier. We changed ESC suppliers for mostly for supply reliability reasons, and the more modern ESC comes with a more modern firmware.
