I don't know if you count me in those who "know what they are doing" and sent me one to test, but you know you can count on me for saying the truth about your little piece of hardware (it doesn't need to be free btw)

I have something to compare it with since one of my machine is flying with Obor's converter (and does occasionally shut off all motors for a split second, costed me three 70€ props lately ) and as you know I'm the horrible guy who first found out his stuff was not compatible with most FC before 2.x and he had to close his thread "because" of me

yep, what else to expect from TMC, so predictable
I guess you've got to live with your fans wether you like it or not...
The funny part TMC, is that one day you will be flying one of my machines without knowing it's mine, he he
The big wheel keeps turning...

Cheers,

Gentlemen, is this seriously gonna be another drama fest. If I wanted that much daytime action I would tune into Telemundo for Los Ricos Tambien Lloran (The Rich Also Cry). Timecop, you may continue with your awesomeness. I'll buy your de jittered variant as soon as the solder cools.

Timecop,

How do you explain so little differences below between your product introduction/description and mine ?

Here you just changed "new" by "newer"

It allow also to use well proven standard controller with a wide range of choices.

No diffs here, just a plain copy/paste

- output PPM signal suitable to standards ESC motor controllers
- support 4 or 6 controller (8 controller version coming soon)
..
- smooth motor handling
- PWM frequencies available: 400 Hz (recommended), 200 Hz, 50 Hz (for standard servos)

Almost same features description copy/pasted, but you missed two

Also, there is *no* feedback from the ESC to return current or temperature from the controllers, so information such as current consumption from the controllers will not be available anymore.

I hate writing.
It does same thing.
I copied the text. Maybe I should ask someone to rewrite the 1st post if it makes you happier.

I don't like to lie, so I removed "features" which aren't possible or useful.

I even linked to your other thread on the bottom, is that not enough credit for you?

What matters is that hardware is different and works, period.
