No that looks differnt, maybe HK-SS or something - the programming card features are same across all turnigy plush/basic line, and that one only supports like 3 programmable things.

they are the same brand that quadroufo sells, he reprograms them also with ppm. don't forget those are not card programmable i believe you need to use transmitter to program them.

Example of the 30a series.

I looked at them too but the quadroufo ESC description says "Timing Auto" which I took to mean NOT really "programmable"

the DYS description says

6. Timing Low / Medium / High, default is Low.
Usually, low timing value can be used for most motors. We recommend the Low timing value for 2 poles motor and Medium timing value for motors with more than 6 poles to get a high efficiency. For higher speed, High timing value can be chosen.

I plan on using them with CC so I want to get an ESC that can handle the high speed input.

I just ordered a Turnigy programming board so I hope it will work.

I ordered 4 of these to replace the 4 50A ESC's I bought from HK which are not programmable. I think it's quite silly for a company who caters to multi-rotor builders to have ESC's that arent programmable in their shop. I will give them a fair chance to work but I do not hold out much hope.

Programmable or not might not be its biggest problem, they might be just way too slow response for multirotor. Which could be a combination of motor timing and just general crappiness of firmware. You'll find out when you get it.

Are you talking about TurboPWM? Or just slowness in general? I'm not going to be doing anything incredibly acrobatic with my quad so I dont know that I need 400Hz refresh rates

No, I'm talking about the time it takes to actually change RPM once the signal has been given to do so. There's a thread here explaining this kind of stuff in pictures.

yeah, programmable wasn't really the point, comparing alleged features to see if it was just another rebranded Turnigy Plush type was
