CarbonBird 18A OPTO ESC BL-Heli 14.4 active braking made for mini-MultiCopters - run at 3S or 4S an ultra light weight 6.0 gram construction with excellent thermal properties for a 300 watt micro ESC - the MOSFETS are specifically selected to run BL-Heli 14.0 with the least amount of heat production and highest efficiency. This is opposite to the majority of ESCs retrofitted with SimonK/BLHeli which actually run much hotter and are less efficient - We have selected very carefully the BEST mosfets to run on BHHeli - for code which is OneShot enabled - these ESCs are OneShot ready - auto sensing.
Notes for BL-Heli 14.4
CarbonBird 18Amp opto ESC BL-Heli 14.4 ships out pre-programmed and optimised for best performance - for most motors - OneShot is included/Ready - we recommend NOT to alter our BL-Heli settings for Scarab Knife mini quads ; However please note well, for some motors or some motor/prop combos DEMAG COMPENSATION must be turned ON by the user (this includes the Carbonbird 2400kv RED ) - For example, if the motor stutters/stalls as throttle is applied immediately cut power and (if off) alter DEMAG to ON - if you simply ignore a stutter/stall and continue to advance the throttle you risk smoking both the ESC and the motor because settings are not tuned
To use BLHeli software to alter your ESC settings
The main advantages of BL-Heli software are
Uses Active free wheel and active braking (PWM Damping) - 14.2 is OneShot ready for Hero•32 - this actively slows the prop/motor down on one side of your Quad, while speeding the prop on the other - without "active-braking" the prop has to slow by inertia and drag alone - this DAMPING - Light puts the brakes on - the Quad handles better - but you must also increase "P" slowly in 0.1 increments to see the full benefits. Naturally active braking uses battery power and reduces flight time - so does having your gains too high - do yourself a favour and reduce the P

I got these tiny ESC's for a custom build, 4S QUADI 400 running 1100kv motors with 8.5HQprops.
Thought they might be too tiny but they are running really well. No problems so far.

The ole saying, "its not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the about the size of the fight in the dog".....well, these are small, but they fly BIG! I am amazed at the quality and speed I get out of these ESC's and my race motors. I went from using huge bulky heavy ESC's to these and cut weight and upped my power SIGNIFICANTLY. The active braking makes your flight so much more locked in. Getting in and out of corners, punching it and last second dipping to make a gate, these do it ALL!
