BLHeli Configurator Testing
#1
Hey everyone!

I'm getting ready for a public test of my BLHeli Configurator, and in need of some amount of testers who will try it, report problems back and have patience for me to fix it :-)
Doing it using this forum will make it easier to accumulate feedback from anyone not acquainted with GitHub.

Requirements.
  • Readiness to flash using Arduino if something goes wrong
  • BLHeli/BLHeli_S ESCs. On Atmel you'll be able to change settings but not flash new firmware, flashing Atmel hasn't been tested properly by me yet and probably has syntax/logic errors I'm not even aware of :-)
  • Flight Controller with BLHeli passthrough
  • Chrome Browser
  • Provide me with you gmail address via private message so I can give you tester access

Make sure you use the "Save Log" button and also copy the contents of Chrome Developer Console in case you run into issues

BLHeli Multishot firmware is available for most SiLabs ESCs, even the old ones with F330. Using Multishot on these ESCs may be dangerous and is not recommended.

Application can be downloaded from here:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detai...gocnjbcjnk

Known caveats:
  • Firmware list may contain versions not physically available for your ESC, for instance DYS XM20A has no versions below 14.4, but they still will be listed (14.3, 14.2 and below). This will be fixed in future revisions when I move all HEX files to a dedicated CDN.
  • DampedLight is listed as an option for PWM Frequency even for those ESCs not supporting it, you'd better not enable it for them :-)

Did you send your email to Andrey? If you did and he added you, you'll have to wait some time for google gnomes to process that Smile
Find me on Youtube and Instagram. I currently fly: NOX5, NOX5RAirblade Assault 130 and drive a scrap RC car

Yes, there's some delay and I'm not aware how long it usually takes :-(

Added a note about BLHeli Multishot firmware. Will add precautions for it into the program in future versions, or maybe hide Multishot HEXes for F330-based ESCs altogether.

Thanks for doing this Andrey. As a primary OSX user, I've been waiting for something like this for a while.
The next build will be perfect! | Fleet and build info | YouTube Channel |

Many thanks Andrey indeed!
Yesterday I was able to try this configurator with my new Racerstar V2 ESCs. It was quick and easy. Smile
