DYS BL16A Speed Controller ESC SimonK/BLHELI Firmware

Speed Controller ESC SimonK/BLHELI Firmware

Ordered this unit to go with the Le Todar 2204 - 2300KV, but again rather than buying a stack and finding out that that quality was useless, i ordered a single. They are different models available depending on the amperage needed. Here are the different versions available according to the provided manual.

When the package arrived i was pretty amazed at the size of the ESC, This is tiny compared to a standard 20-30A ESC, this unit can easily be nicely tucked away on a QAV250 rig.

 The unit is delivered without connectors, so you will need to purchase some banana plugs, I reckon a 2mm or a 2,5mm plug will be ok for this ESC. I only had 3mm lying around so i used these and they are maybe larger than i wanted. Solder the three black wires with banana plugs and heatshrink the plugs after soldering.

 I used a CC3D Quadcopter LED Power Distribution Board to mount the positive and negative wires from the ESC

 I soldered two wires for the main power supply from my LIPO battery, you will need to of coarse mount the end with your favourite connector, Deans, XT60 or whatever you prefer, might sound silly but i have ade this simple mistake a few times, check your polarity and make sure it is not reversed + with + and - with -, sometimes one is so focused on other things, that these simple tasks tend to go wrong.

 These ESC's are OPTO versions and do not provide a 5v from the ESC to power external units like your flight controller, so you will need a UBEC mounted on the distribution board that can provide the needed 5v power

Connect the motor wires to the ESC

 Connect the signal wire from the ESC to the servo tester, the white cable is the signal wire. Connect the 5v to the servo tester again remember to check your polarity.

Connect your battery, and the servo tester should initiate, now you are ready to test your ESC and motor. You might have to manually calibrate your ESC to get the full range of the servo tester.

This ESC is programmable using DYS ESC USB Linker Programmer
Her are some of the options that can be programmed. I have not yet purchased the programmer, so will not talk too much about this.You can watch this video.
