Where could it be connected and what code do I need to change in megapirateng?

Best regards,

yes if you have bell or pancake motors you will need to flash your escs to wiiesc thru the new kk flash tool from lazyzero. i think its called 0.7 beta . i have it and seen the wiiesc flash on there.

its a known issue that simonk and flat motors dont like each other but the wiiesc flash will fix that.

Thats great news as I was having trouble trying to port it myself.

Sir Alex - would you mind updating the porting method on the wiki so we can get some more insight for the next version.

Thanks

All,
With the Extend Board for AIO PRO FC which GPS baud should I use?
Do I need to setup the GPS as for a standalone GPS?

Also I bought the 3DR radio from RCTIMER, do I need to separate the XBEE from it? Is there any XBEE that will work with the extend board with the 3DR from RCTIMER?

I have the bell RC timer 2830 1000kv motors. And like I said. 3 of the 4 work fine after flashing. So Im thinking I might have screwed something up.
Should I order another motor and esc and try flashing again. Or just order a new preflashed esc?

I use RcTimer 5010 360 Kv pancakes since April on SimonK-ized 20A ESCs without any issues. And lately I setup a hexa on AX-4008Qs and it's running smooth as well.

pre flashed escs

do the pre flashed escs have a bootloader such that they can be re-flashed/updated through the receiver wire?

Yes. Using lazyzero flashing tool.

Edit: sorry, they have to have had the bootloader loaded when they were flashed. I haven't seen store with preflashed ESCs with bootloader enabled

Edit2: forgot. Abusemark sells them with bootloader.
