sorry bout my previous post saying MULTI wasnt supported by AVR yet, what i meant was that the GUI for BLHeli doesnt support MULTI yet, you can still program ESCs with the AVR, but you'd have to use TX sticks to calibrate.

i got my first ESC programmed!.... but its not working.... its not bricked because i can still reflash it... weird. hopefully the guys at helifreaks can help

What advantages would their be for flashing a SILabs based esc, isn't the refresh rate already 490Hz?
Howdy,

I solve this problem using this JTAG 'connectorless' connector, all it requires is three little holes and a ten-pin IDC pad pattern on the board. It is a very slick and inexpensive solution for programming Atmel based boards. And are really neato as they are inexpensive too and easy to implement.

Hello all. I have Turnigy Plush ESC's and clone of Silabs USB debugger (with 4 pin connector). Can i flash my ESC's someway?

yes you can. the pins that you need from the programmer cable are:
7.................C2CK
2 or 3 or 9..GND
4.................C2D

follow the toolstick part of the guide here, except you will be using your adapter.

Thank's alot. Sorry i forget to say that i have Plush 30A, will this instruction suit to it?

you can use the plush 6A hex for now, but the startup might be rough until the proper hex files for different amperages are released. after the prop gets spinning, its is good. i found this was because of bad a ESC.

i have also attached a 25A hex that works on 18A and 25A for sure 30A plush most likely too!

Has this file been checked on a HK Plush 25A v3.1?
