Product Description

CarbonBird 22A OPTO ESC are made for pro-MultiCopters - specifically to run at 4s or  5S or 6S they also feature DUAL CAPS (missing from many race ESCs - Caps provide major advantages/efficiency/smoothing for long endurance flights) light weight 24.2 gram construction with excellent thermal properties for a 555 watt ESC - the MOSFETS are specifically selected to run SimonK with the least amount of heat production and highest efficiency.  This is opposite to the majority of ESCs retrofitted with SimonK which actually run much hotter and are less efficient - We have selected very carefully the BEST mosfets to run on simonK -   These ESC are perfect for 5S or 6S pro-spec ops.

Features / Specifications

  • Output  555watt Continuous 22A at 6S, Burst 33A at 6S up to 10 Secs.   sure its big  - BUT -> We have tested it at 30 amps continous on 6s (we soldered all the wires for this test )!
  • Speed - both 400hz and 490hz and 600hz compatible - DJi & MultiWii tested
  • Heatsink : 1 x heatsinks - superior heat control and EMI shielding
  • JST & GBC ; fitted with JST female and 2.00mm long-bullets (GBC)
  • Input Voltage  2-6 cells lithium battery 
  • BEC  not fitted - does NOT have any BEC - please note
  • uSEC range  These are programmed to SimonK - idle 1064 - mid 1500 - high throttle 1864 uSec
  • Size:  70mm (L) * 25mm (W) * 8mm (H)
  • Weight 24.2g
  • Program card - Does not require or use any program card - please note
  • Learning the throttle range - a correctly setup radio must be used 1064/1500/1864 - If the ESC sees a full throttle high (>1864uSec) at power on it will go into throttle learning mode and "peep" once - then reduce throttle below 1064uSec - it will "peep" twice - completed (Noobs please note the sound is made by a motor connected to the ESC)
  • 100% compatible with multicopter autopilots such as PARIS AIR , PARIS v5 or DJI NAZA ; Wookong - there is no need to remove the red wire as it does NOT supply 5v
  • 70mm 18AWG DC input leads with JST ; 125mm 3 phase output  2.0 GBC female - fits all carbonBird motors 888kv / 775/v and 1175kv


Important beginner NOTES on ESC set up :  Read this before connecting any ESC !!

  1. DO not connect the ESC back to front - ie reverse polarity - You will smoke it!
  2. If cutting and soldering wires - make sure to solder all ESC wires with Flux Paste (Not flux core solder) - For push connectors a bad connection (a loose fitting connector)  or dry solder joint(no flux) - will cause the ESC to burn/fail and the motor to possibly burn as well.  Check all wiring with a DMM first.
  3. What does OPTO mean?  Does not contain any voltage reduction circuit - You must use a  BEC or PMU -(NOT included)
  4. During first throttle up power check - concentrate on the motor response - if the motor hesitates or stutters - or the prop twitches back and forth - IMMEDIATELY cut power (throttle OFF) - investigate for a broken wire in the motor - a shorted wire in the motor (mounting screw ruptured the windings) - a shorted connector or insulation cut  - or anything blocking the motor from turning (a screw from your work bench trapped inside on the magnets).
  5. to reverse the direction of rotation of a brushless motor exchange any 2 of the 3 motor wires
  6. Use a power meter to ensure you are not overloading the ESC at WOT (full throttle for the prop) - ESC works hardest at mid throttle - so it's useless to think that if you don't fly full throttle you won't overheat the MOSFET because you are not using all the amps - completely opposite - the ESC will overheat if the kv of the motor is too high for the props used.  You must do a WOT check and make SURE at full throttle the MAX amps are 22amps or less !!!!!
