it beeps 8 beeps exactly the same then a pause for about 1 full second then 8 beeps and it keeps repeating.
i just have the esc hooked to my rx and a motor connected to the esc. i start it with throttle high and wait for beep then lower it and the calibration is done. when i try this process with the one esc i get lots of beeping but with all my others they work great.
i will try to flash it again when i get home.

I downloaded it from the ESC before I reflashed it. Not sure if it worked, though.

It's all fun until ......


Hi all, hopefully someone can help, I'm stuck!
Trying to flash HK F30A (light blue heatshrink) esc's with the bs_nfet.hex file and it stops at the "writing" as per below.
I've checked, rechecked and triple checked all the connections.
I'm using a USBtinyISP. The 'busy' LED comes on, stays on and it stalls as per the message below.
Did I miss a step, does the ESC need power?


avrdude.exe: AVR device initialized and ready to accept instructions

I always power ESC (by current limited supply) when flashing.
No real AVR programming adapter provides target power, anyway.

Thanks TC (and SS)

Problem solved - missed a step in loading up the KK flash tool

If you have a USBtiny the flashtool newer than 0.33 will not work with until you replace the avrdude.exe and avrdude.conf in the folder /lib/avrdude/windows/ with the one in this
First esc flashed - woohoo

looks like reflashing the esc worked out fine for me. it must of had a glitch when flashing the first try.

Hello,

i am using Hobbywing Flyfun 18Amp for my quad,
i did not know if these are high refresh ESC, so i asked my seller
he stated:
As we know, all the flyfun series ESCs have a high refresh rate of 423HZ. We also confirmed this information with Hobbywing company. And they are all compatible with multicopters.


Did anyone know this already?, so there is no need to flash them ?

lol. did they mention they also work real well with DJI??
incase you didn't get it, hobbywing esc = garbage, do not buy, do not waste money, cheaper, better ESC is available that is reflashable.

Hi Guys
Im having some issues getting my software setup to flash some esc's

I am trying to run the lazyzero tool

When i try to run the serial command to launch the program i get this message.

"java is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

Even though i have Java installed?

What am i doing wrong?

Then i have tried the Chatch15117 fashtool and i get the following message

avrdude.exe: warning: cannot set sck period. please check for usbasp firmware update.
avrdude.exe: error: programm enable: target doesn't answer. 1
avrdude.exe: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
this check.


avrdude.exe done. Thank you.

I am trying to flash RCtimer 18amp esc using HK USBasp programmer.
I am pretty sure i have the driver installed correctly for this programmer.

Any ideas what i am doing wrong?

Cheers

Ben
