USB Linker tool for upgrading SimonK ESCs using ATMEL 8 bit cpu, via the existing ESc wire (no need to cut open the ESC) , up to BLHEli 13.1 firmware - such as CarbonBird 12a and CarbonBird 22a - Does NOT work on Silabs ESCs like CarbonBird 18a
Requires: user must flash their own firmware as below - at your own risk
Downloads for BL-Heli
The CarbonBird 12Amp ESC (and CarbonBird 22a ESC) can be programmed and optimised for active braking called "damped Light" performance - with BLHeli - OneShot is included/Ready in the latest versions of BaseFlight 0.63 or later (a tick box) and BLHeli 13.1 auto-senses oneshot coming from the Flight control (it does not work the other way - be careful you will smoke any ESC which is not updated - never select oneShot unless BLHeli 13.1 or later is first installed in all ESC first ) - we recommend use our BL-Heli settings above - for Scarab Knife mini quads (depends on RPM and Props - some motor prop combo need different settings - see motor pages data table) ; However if you wish to alter anything or to DIY upgrade your existing Simon_K CarbonBird ESC to BL_Heli DIY at your own risk, - download the following files
NOTE: The ESC MUST have the correct bootloader (SimonK or BLHeli) - it will not work on ANY ESC just becuase the name of that ESC is on a list - and loading bootloader on ATMEL requires a different hardware and different process - you cannot load bootloader to atmel with this LINKER device. If you damage your bootloader - then this device cannot repair that damage either to the bootloader - bootloader cannot be installed or repaired over 1-wire connectors.
