Why run a ground wire with ESC signal to the FC?

And the higher the frequency the more critical it becomes so DShot600 is more sensitive to this than say DShot300.

Not sure if the implementation has changed since the time when I was following DShot's development closely but it used to be that if a certain number of "packets" were corrupted in a row it would enter FS.

Very interesting... I did not think about it this way...
Thx - I will have to find some more info about this.

The DShot signal still consists of pulses, but pulses that have a much shorter length than a PWM signal. The signal ground is still required and is actually even more important as a filtering capacitor has been removed from DShot compatible ESCs to make it possible to even send the DShot signal.

Hey TG, I know its almost a year ago now, but did you notice any significant difference in quad behavior after connecting grounds?


Has connecting them just become SOP now due to the growing popularity of DShot?
