Cicada 30A Blheli_S ESC
The Sunrise Cicada 30a BLHeli_S ESC is, in our opinion, the best and most reliable BLHeli_S ESC on the market. In short, BLHeli_S differs from normal BLHeli by being more smooth. This is achieved through a higher command resolution, where the ESC has more steps it can use in going from one command to another. This ESC accepts 2-6S battery power.
Here's some info on the ESC, and it's latest generation BB2 chip:
1. BLHeli_S is designed for superior performance in multirotors, and uses hardware generated motor pwm for smooth throttle response and silent operation.
2. All codes use damped light mode. Damped light does regenerative braking, causing very fast motor retardation, and inherently also does active freewheeling.
3. The code supports features to prevent sync loss. There are tuneable parameters that can make the code run well even in the most demanding situations, although default settings will work excellently in normal operating environments.
4. The code supports regular 1-2ms pulse width input, as well as Oneshot125 (125-250us), Oneshot42 (41.7-83.3us) and Multshot (5- 25us). The input signal is automatically detected by the ESC upon power up.
Here at RaceDayQuads, we have held off on bringing on a BLHeli_S product to allow the technology develop and now, it's there. Enjoy your Sunrise Cicada BLHeli_S ESCs, and enjoy that throttle smoothness!
