Auxiliary Wire Mode

The AUX LINE is the extra white wire connected to the receiver cable. The EDGE controllers can use this line for a variety of tasks. The available options are listed below.


 Disabled
Disabled input and output of the AUX LINE.

 Gain Input
Allows an external throttle signal connected to the AUX LINE to adjust the governor gain of controller in real time.

 RPM Out
Toggles the AUX LINE for every electrical commutation. Divide this number by your number of magnetic pole pairs for mechanical RPM.

 Arm Lock Key
This mode uses the Arming Lock Key Harness which attaches to the AUX LINE and the receiver. While the key is in the socket the controller will be incapable of arming. Once removed, the ESC will be allowed to arm when it receives a low throttle command on the traditional throttle line.

 RX Arm Lock
Locks the controller when the signal on the AUX LINE is below 50% (<1.5ms).

 Audible Beacon
Causes the controller to emit an audible beacon from the motor when the AUX LINE receives a signal over 50% (>1.5ms). The beacon is only emitted if the motor is not running.

Automatic Data Log Reset

On power-up if the Data Log Buffer is filled above this percentage all data is erased and logging starts over. This ensures the most recent flight is logged.

 Always (0%)
The Data Log Buffer is always erased on power up and logging starts from the beginning of memory.

 50%
If the Data Log Buffer is filled above 50% of the maximum amount of logging data available, the controller will erase the Data Log Buffer and start logging from the beginning of memory on power up.

 60%
If the Data Log Buffer is filled above 60% of the maximum amount of logging data available, the controller will erase the Data Log Buffer and start logging from the beginning of memory on power up.

 70%
If the Data Log Buffer is filled above 70% of the maximum amount of logging data available, the controller will erase the Data Log Buffer and start logging from the beginning of memory on power up.

 80%
If the Data Log Buffer is filled above 80% of the maximum amount of logging data available, the controller will erase the Data Log Buffer and start logging from the beginning of memory on power up.

 90%
If the Data Log Buffer is filled above 90% of the maximum amount of logging data available, the controller will erase the Data Log Buffer and start logging from the beginning of memory on power up.

 Disabled (100%)
The Data Log Buffer is never erased on power up and logging starts from the end of the log until memory is full.

Sweet! Let's hope the Ice series gets this!

Though... what happens if you set the limit to, say, 70%. You power up at 65%. Fly around for a while, then something weird happens and you crash. You take it home and power it up, to pull the log and investigate. As you power it up, the ESC sees that the last flight took your stored-logs up to 75%-full. 75>70%, and so it clears the logs, before you can download them. Uh-oh

Granted, who knows how often that would happen. But it would sure be unfortunate to lose the actual one you need.

Hopefully it would at least avoid clearing data if it boots up and sees a Castle Link connected? You'd still have to avoid powering it up at the field after a crash, just to see what still functions, as that could conceivably clear your logs.

Data Log

I assume that it does not clear the data log until motor arm conditions. It would be nice if someone from CC would actively participate in this thread so could get the correct answers without any speculation.

I will probably set mine to 50% and forget about it until something interesting happens.

Another question is about the amount of data storage. Does it have more memory then the ICE? Does it have a faster CPU? What are all the hardware differences?

I wondered about not clearing the logs until the ESC arms. The only risk I could think of with that is that it might take some time to clear? When I delete my Ice logs, it takes a few seconds, I believe. They may want to avoid that delay as you're getting ready to spool the motor.

I sure hope there is more log storage, 20KB of log memory is awfully inexpensive. I'll bet it could be bumped up to 64KB for under $20

Where did you find the details you posted on the logs, etc?

I think that it is an advanced version of the ICE. It will have all same firmware features plus some new ones. Looks to me like the Edge will be replacing the ICE sometime later this year.

Has anyone heard of a production or shipping schedule?

You should send a PM or email to one of the CC factory guys and ask them?
