APD ESC compatibility

I’m considering using this ESC for a build https://www.getfpv.com/apd-f-series-40f3-6s-40a-32-bit-esc.html

The only thing is it says it supports Dshot300 to Dshot2400. Has anyone confirmed that it works with Dshot150?

If you are not set on those ESCs, I can Highly recommend these https://www.getfpv.com/holybro-tekko32-f3-metal-esc.html

I have a bunch and they work awesome at Dshot150

I’ve run those on a 6" freestyle rig and they have proven super tough so far. Thanks for the recommendation.

I recommend these. Telemetry works beautifully and inexpensively:

I’ve tried the APDs back in the days of 4.0.0-rc, with Pixhawk, Black and Orange cube, and the ESCs weren’t happy with the signal.

Good to know, thanks for the info!

APD esc’s have been great for me. No issues using the 40A or the 80A f series on plane and copter after 4.0.0.

Hey Jason

I am trying to use the F120 on hexacopter with Cube orange.
Really struggling to get all motors to spin nicely together.

Setup on Aux 1 - 6 and enabled dshot. But very strange motor behavior.

Any ideas how I can get it working?


How is this realized? What test conditions?

When we do motor test, Click motor A and all motors spin and twitch.

All motors when one is commanded? Huh. Post your parameter file, let’s take a look.
