Flash SkyRC Swift 10A with BLHeli firmware

Hardware

  • Arduino MEGA (better), or Cheap USBAsp from eBay
  • Soldering iron
  • Enameled Copper wire, diam 0.2mm
  • Solder
  • 3 Pin female header pitch 2.54mm
  • Large heatshrink tube. I used diam 24mm.

Steps

Hardware 1

  • Remove the plastic of the ESC
  • Glue the header onto the regulator (next to the cap). Try to have it flush the edge so you can keep it accessible for later.
  • Solder the wires from the test points to the header
  • Connect the header to the arduino mega
  • Power the ESC

Software

It's a little bit complicated for two reasons: I first used owSilProg before I discovered BlHeliSuite and I couldn't flash a new ESC directly with BlHeliSuite. But it worked, on ten ESC.

  • Get owsilprog
  • Use the AVRBurn tool to flash the firmware onto the arduino mega
  • Use owSilProg to flash the ESC with BlHeli. Select HK10A MULTI.
  • Flash all your ESC
  • Get BlHeliSuite
  • Use the AVRBurn tool to flash the BLHeliSuite programmer firmware (use the PB2PB3 or MULTI one (I think))
  • Reflash the ESC with the most recent BlHeli firmware

Hardware 2

  • Cut a length of heatshrink tube so the ESC fits in. Have 3mm on both sides of the board.
  • Heat in place
  • Fly the damn uav !
