This programmer will change the settings and update the firmware via the servo cable for any of the atmel BL-heli ESC sold here. All of them have the bootloader enabled.
This programmer will not “power’ the ESC. Power is still needed, the program will tell you when to connect the power. Power the ESC with a 6 volt battery to be safe when changing the settings/updating the firmware.
It will work with atmel ESCs- B-12 ESC, F-12 ESC, HugESC. Note* not programmed to work with BearhugESCs. The same hardware is used for BearhugESCs, but you need to flash it with a different programming settings, and use different pins. See BearhugESC page for additional information.
It comes pre-programmed.
