No, really. The thread is a hot mess.

I landed on this page looking for a small quad brushed ESC driver. What I found here is literally a picture of a deadbug and a reference to some other thread. (Not even a link, but a vague reference.) Not only that, but it's a picture of the connectors of the deadbug, not what the actual functional components are (presumably on the other side).

It's a neat project, but between the frustration of wading through tons of superfluous, just-here-for-historical-purposes, and back and forth references to other stuff in these threads and just buying a $40 quad, most people will just go buy the $40 quad unless they have a real need to build something that they simply can't buy. There are some good reasons to DIY something like this, but I don't think they apply to most people around here.

So the clicks are going to be for entertainment purposes, and that includes attachment clicks, at the very least until someone cleans it up/rehashes it.

There's a fair bit of Brushed ESC IN this thread, post 1650 you can see the middle tight hand PCB is a FET board.

Still a bit of searching as it a related topic rather than the main topic.

you dont have to be nicer but maybe try smarter yourself. looks like youre in the wrong thread. wrong forum actually. strikes me that diy electronics or multirotor electronics areas would be the place to go for esc circuits. this thread was one of the first showing non-technical people how to use the board from a toy wlt quad to make a homegrown mini-multi for about 1/3 what the full blown v939 cost at that time. no $40 toys back then.

judging by views, downloads, and the many builds shown off here this was quite successful. the brushed esc only mentioned in passing was described in detail in another thread which was referenced and would have been easy to locate with search or dave1993 threads started. regarding off topic see this posted post #1 here and of virtually all my other diy threads:

If you build DIY Hubsan Tx module (click my user name and look at my posts) you can use Hubsan X4 Fc, the has self levelling and the ability to turn off flips, DIY module can cost as little as £8 depending on which parts and spec you want.

yeah... but it dont work with his hk v2 (great radio) while the v939 and v929 boards do. i do lament that hubsan chose to trailblaze instead of remain flysky compatible. or that none of the flysky compatible quads have accelerometer. accelerometer is definitely a nice feature... as long as it can be disabled for "sport" flying.

i wonder what the deal is with these new flying tinkerbells. are they cheap? do they have acccel? gyro? they look pretty stable in the videos.

Hi Dave,
If you are talking about the truly nano sized multicopters at <6cm diameter ~$40 Hubsan Nano Q4 and the rebranded Estes ad Revel Proto X and Syncro, and the ~$25 WLToys V272 clone, yes they all have accelerometers and they can be calibrated for level.

Estes Proto X Nano RTF/Hubsan Q4 Nano
- WLtoys v272 nano quad -

Cheers,
Jim
