Question
Castle Phoenix 85HV - which version to update?

Hi!
Got Phoenix 85HV on my second-handed-recently-bought Trex 600esp.
The software version is quite out of date... 2.19Beta. I want to update the software version but heard that there was some faulty versions that made those ESC's burn during flights.
Which software versions do you use with this ESC guys, and consider it safe and working well?
Thanks

castle fixes bugs they find in the previous versions.
also, there tends to be performance enhancements.

They usually list what each firmware fixes in the firmware download page.

Thanks alot..
Well, meanwhile got Email back from C.C, they recommend updating to the latest non-beta version- 3.27 or 3.28.
Thanks again and take care
