Feature Request: ESC (BLHeli) USB Passthrough

Very excited today about the release of AC 3.4 final, will update my rebuilt S500 quadcopter as soon as possible and test.
Many thanks to all people making this possible.

What I would like to do in a future AC release is the ability to do ESC programming/flashing via USB passthrough like Cleanflight does. Currently I have two Pixracer boards and while on the S500 is easy to program/calibrate/update the ESCs via their servo lines, on my Pixracer 250 build is it not so easy.

I do not know if this feature is Pixracer-specific or can be applied to other Pixhawks as well, if it’s not, please accept my apologies and ignore this message.

Again, thank you very much for all your help and support.
Ardupilot is a great DIY project for all of us that do this non-commercially, for the love of flying.

This issue has been discussed at the dev calls. Can you please open an issue here: https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/issues/new ?


I’m going to close this issue now, hope that’s ok.
