Yes, you can. But its throttle response is still not ideal.

Steve,
Check the processor on the Plushes you have. If they are Amtel ATMega8, you're golden. If they are Silabs, then there is not an option to flash those as yet. Nek has put all the info you need in the first post of this thread.
Cheers,
Jim

I just opened up a package I got yesterday with my six new 12 amp ESC's. Unfortunately it is bad news. Avoid the Exceed-RC Proton 12A's. They have the Silabs's chips and are unusable. Now I have 6 ESC's I can't use. Hopefully I can sell them to my boss.

Oh well, time to order something different.

RCTimer has been using atmegas and I've not heard of any of their ESCs having SiLabs chip. So you can keep buying from them, and price is right too. Their 30A is equiv to Plush 25, 20A equiv to Plush 18, etc.

That's good news. Have you heard of any issues with the RcTimer 40a v2 series?

I ordered the Exceed-RC ESC's because they are available in the US. That way I can get them in a few days. Price ends up being about the same. The 18A ones have Atemel chips and worked fine so I rolled the dice. No worries, I am sure we can sell them at the shop.

I went ahead and ordered some from RC-Timer. At least I know my odds are good coming from there. We will see how it goes when they get here.

tgy.hex is the ~1month? or so old code.
new one runs at 15mhz and has some fixes for stuff.
i'd imagine both would work.
