And the answer is a big YES!

Had some small problems first with programming the end points of the CC ESC but have just had a great test flight in my garden without problems.

The Phoenix 25 has fixed endpoints and Chinese ESCís have programmable end points so you have to calibrate all the Chinese ESCís so that they match the Phoenix 25. I found that the internal throttle curve is a little different after I upgraded my quad to all Phoenix 25 ESCís so your board will have to be smart enough to account for that.

Good to see that it works but I would suggest that your long term plan should be to upgrade to all CC ESCís. Since I made that upgrade I have never had any more ESC problems even on the very hot days that we are having this summer.
