Hello Vincent,

I am currently using the Phoenix 25amp ESC's in my DJI WooKong-M controlled quadcopter and am happy with the initial results so far.

I would highly suggest that you buy the Castle Link and use that device to update & program your CC ESC's. Trying to do it with the transmitter is a pain in the ass, whereas with the Castle Link it is very easy and everything is explained to you at each step making it nearly impossible to make a mistake.

If you don't know, the Castle Link is a small device that plugs into your computer at one end and into your ESC at the other. You download the free program from CC and use that program to update & program your ESC's. It couldn't be easier!

If I remember correctly I think that the Castle Link cost around $20.00 or so in American money.

Good luck,
