@ Soma: I saw your original post linked from another location, but it seems that these fake "Skywalker" ESCs can be flashed with the standard tgy.hex file...

Have you tried flashing it? I don't see any pads, and am apprehensive with having to attach wires/microclips directly to the Atmel chip.
Hi Mate, sorry to hear you have some fakes as well. Did you buy from TomTop?

I have started a thread here...

to warn others of the TomTop fakes. Please feel free to add your voice.

The best way to flash the fakes is with the cable that clips on top of the Atmel chip.
Although I am boycotting HK too because of their copying Flyduinos wultiwii boards.

Cheers mate.
