Universal ESC Programmer

$ 7.00 USD

Program your Zues "Littlebee ESC" or DYS XM20A using this. But, it doesn't stop there. This is a universal programmer. Meaning it can propgram both Silabs and Atmel based ESC's. No need for separate linkers. This is an all-in-one tool. 

 

Steps to Program your ESC: 

  1. Make sure you download and install the BLHeli Suite software from HERE

  2. Once downloaded, run BLHeliSuite.exe to launch the programming software.  

  3. This programmer will work with both Silabs and Atmel based ESCs. Select the "Select Silabs/Atmel Interface" drop down menu and choose either "SILABS BLHeli Bootloader (4 way-if)" or "ATMEL BLHeli Bootloader (4 way-if)" depending which chip type your ESC is. 

  4. You are now ready to connect your Flasher to your PC, and flash your ESCs!

  5. Plug the programmer into your Computer USB port. Don't worry! Yes, the part that plugs into your USB ports looks strange. 

  6. Apply Battery voltage to the ESC. 

  7. Click on the "Connect" button in BLHeli Suite. 

  8. Click on the "Read Setup" button in BLheli Suite to see all of the current settings saved on the ESC.

  9. For most setups the majority of settings you remain unchanged. But, there are a few items to check.

  10. Oneshot - This setting will not be listed anywhere on the BLheli GUI. This is because Oneshot is automatically detected by your ESC. The location you need to activate Oneshot is within your FC software (Cleanflight, Baseflight, etc).

  11.  Startup power - This one is VERY important. Make sure to set your startup power at .25 (1/4) or lower. 

  12. Motor direction - Set this to change the rotational direction of your motor, if needed. 
  13. PWM Frequency / Damped  - This setting is where you accomplish "damped light" everyone talks about! Setting to damped light actively brakes the motor on throttle reduction from your transmitter. This allows you to change altitude very quickly during flight, which is a huge advantage in racing applications. 
  14. After adjusting the settings, you MUST click "Write Setup" or your settings will not take effect.
