As you can see in the beginning of the video, when the motors are started, that some fast left-right yaw input is needed to help the ESCs leave the initial stuttering phase and let the motors to idle smoothly, after that motors run normally.
....
Wow, great video. And what an amazing image stability! I guess there is some image stabilization involved here
As for the startups, I now have a code ready that on all my motors and ESCs starts up reliably and smooth. It will be released shortly
Thanks for sharing the video!

Steffen,
No post production stabilization, the mount is 2 axis stabilized by the FC. Video is raw as it comes from the camera.
I will be trying the new ESCs FW as soon as you have it! Willing to test it for sure.
Thanks again!!

Hi Victor and all

Rev9.0 is now posted: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=205
Very reliable, smooth and gentle start. At least for all the motors and ESCs that I have

Hey Steffen,
I proceeded with flashing Rev 9.0 on the 40A Plushes, working perfectly.
Rough start up is gone, tested on three motors, clean and smooth throttle ramp now!

now... (there is always a "now" left.. )

I know this must be something that OlliW should know about:

Im not able to read/write Rev 9.0 FW parameters with v0.07
This is what i get:

"Read... Please wait!
delay... OK
v... OlliW SilProg v0.08 PB3PB4
r... rok
d... dok08 -> Device ID 08
i... iok
br... br011A02ok0F -> Layout 15
br... br021A00ok0900 -> Revison 9.0
br... br021A0Dok55AA -> Mode 55AA MULTI
Read... ABORTED!
The options for this target are not available in BLHeliTool.dev!"

OlliW...HELP!!!

hey
I am unfortunately a bit busy workwise at the moment, and not at home anyhow... money needs to be earned before it can be spend... rrrhhhh...
steffen ist too productive for me to always catch up...
maybe I ll have kind of a pcth by tomorrow evening
otherwise, if you can't wait, you may debug teh .dev file yourself. If you know how to program you will see that it just defines some hashes, so you could grab the layout14multi hash, copy and paste it, rename it, change teh paranter ranges at the few pklaces needed, register it below, and it should go

sorry for the inconvennience...

I just can't get this to work... I have tried a v6.0 and a 6.21 with no success. Here's the message after trying the 6.0...

Read... Please wait!
delay... OK
v... OlliW SilProg v1.00 PB3PB4
read target no. 1
r... rok
d... dok08 -> Device ID 08 F31x
i... iok
br... br011A02okFF -> Layout 255
br... br021A00okFFFF -> Revison 255.255
br... br021A0DokFFFF Block read FAILED!

br... ok
Read... DONE!

I get similar results with the other one (6.21)... any ideas?

that's most strange, since form the output it clearly appears as if the programmer is working properly... could you also post the output for a flash, please?
