Sure, C and 32bits is real easy .
Spins the motor quite well.

who wouldn't want to test them

excellent! I have a whole bunch of them sitting here waiting patiently for when you'd like some tests run! Did Achim get his? They were supposed to be sending some over. They've also said there's a slight hardware revision in the latest ones. I might see if I can get some of those as well.

Oh boys, so much toys to play with, after I played with CF/BF, now BLHeliSuite needs some more polishing not not at least some things to optimize for BLHeli_S.
And I will get "mine" on Monday...

Looked around but I couldnīt find:

How are the BusyBee1 and 2 prices compared to that of the F330 and F39X?

Is there a reason for the newer ESCs to be more expensive than the former generations? (Besides novelty of course)

From the conversations I've had with the manufacturers I think you'll be pleased with the price. should be about the same as the existing F39X ESCs from what I can tell. The problem right now with the EFM8BB is availability. I don't think SiLabs saw them as a high volume product

Thanks QMF.

I only need 32.

The BB's are real cheap. They are newer, yes. But also made in a newer process than the F3xx'es. So silicon die area becomes smaller. And volumes I'm sure will be in lots of millions .

Right now the two manufacturers I've been talking with have both said they're having trouble with availability of the chip. Maybe they just haven't ramped production up to full scale yet?

I need 4 to try out.

Link them as soon as they are on sale.

this is difficult to understand.
i have no problem with the original vgood firmware as i am flying in most cases 2208 motors. and here the throttle response is just very nice.

8-bit is something of the past.
not saying that 8-bit is something bad by default.
