Product Description

CarbonBird 22A OPTO BL-Heli 14.9 ESC are made for pro-MultiCopters - specifically to run at 4s,5S or 6S  they also feature DUAL CAPS (missing from many ESCs - Caps provide major advantages/efficiency/smoothing for long endurance flights)  they are ultra light weight 24.2 gram construction with excellent thermal properties for a 555 watt ESC - the MOSFETS are specifically selected to run BL-Heli 14.9 active damping code with the least amount of heat production and highest efficiency.  This is opposite to the majority of ESCs retrofitted with SimonK or BL-Heli which actually run much hotter and are less efficient - We have selected very carefully the BEST mosfets to run on BLHEli code -   These ESC are perfect for 5S or 6S pro-spec ops.  These ESC have OneShot enabled code 14.9installed.


Features / Specifications
The main advantage of BL-Heli 14.9 software are
Uses Active free-wheel and active braking - this slows the prop down on one side while speeding the prop on the other - without "active-braking" the prop has to slow by inertia and drag alone - this DAMPING Light, puts the brakes on - the Quad handles better - but you must also increase "P" slowly in 0.1 increments to see the full benefits.  These ESCs are OneShot ready and if controlled by BaseFlight Hero•32 or MWii OneShot coded AIR Herov2 - wlll also deliver OneShot sync. 

  • Output  555watt Continuous 22A at 6S, Burst 33A up to 15 Secs. Runs cool. sure its big  - BUT -> We have tested it at 30 amps continous on 6s (we soldered all the wires for this test )!
  • Speed - both 400hz and 490hz and 600hz compatible - DJi & MultiWii tested
  • Heatsink : 1 x heatsinks - superior heat control and EMI shielding
  • JST & GBC ; fitted with JST female and 2.00mm long-bullets (GBC)
  • Input Voltage  2-6 cells lithium battery 
  • BEC  not fitted - does NOT have any BEC - please note
  • uSEC range  These are programmed to - idle 1100 - mid 1500 - high throttle 1900 uSec
  • Size:  70mm (L) * 25mm (W) * 8mm (H)
  • Weight 24.2g
  • Program card - Does not require or use any program card - please note
  • Learning the throttle range - a correctly setup radio must be used 1064/1500/1864 - If the ESC sees a full throttle high (>1864uSec) at power on it will go into throttle learning mode and "peep" once - then reduce throttle below 1064uSec - it will "peep" twice - completed (Noobs please note the sound is made by a motor connected to the ESC)
  • 100% compatible with multicopter autopilots such as PARIS AIR , PARIS v5 or DJI NAZA ; Wookong - there is no need to remove the red wire as it does NOT supply 5v
  • 70mm 18AWG DC input leads with JST ; 125mm 3 phase output  2.0 GBC female - fits all carbonBird motors 888kv / 775/v and 1175kv


Downloads for BL-Heli for DIY firmware update (at your own risk)
The CarbonBird 22Amp ESC BL-Heli is pre-programmed and optimised for best performance - we recommend NOT to alter our BL-Heli settings above - for Scarab Knife mini quads ; However if you wish to alter anything or to upgrade your existing Simon_K CarbonBird ESC to BL_Heli DIY at your own risk, then download the following files

  1. Download the BL-Heli v 14.0 Win 7 program .exe - Select BlueSer 30amp Multi and flash the firmware firstly (it can use the Simon_K bootloader present)
  2. Then upload the setting for this ESC CarbonBird 22a - by using Our pre-set saved setting for this ESC by .ini file HERE
  3. UART - You can use a USB to UART linker for ATMEL, then download the USB VCP driver HERE for that UART ; Make sure you power the ESC using a 3S LiPo, as the USB linker does not provide CPU power for the ESC
  4. Now for the good part - go back and increase your "P" values ! Obviously this is done in steps of 0.2 frm your previous setup - an oLED is best for this - take it up until 0.3 under any oscillations.

Important beginner NOTES on ESC set up :  Read this before connecting any ESC !!

  1. DO not connect the ESC back to front - ie reverse polarity - You will smoke it!
  2. If cutting and soldering wires - make sure to solder all ESC wires with Flux Paste (Not flux core solder) - For push connectors a bad connection (a loose fitting connector)  or dry solder joint(no flux) - will cause the ESC to burn/fail and the motor to possibly burn as well.  Check all wiring with a DMM first.
  3. What does OPTO mean?  Does not contain any voltage reduction circuit - You must use a  BEC or PMU -(NOT included)
  4. During first throttle up power check - concentrate on the motor response - if the motor hesitates or stutters - or the prop twitches back and forth - IMMEDIATELY cut power (throttle OFF) - investigate for a broken wire in the motor - a shorted wire in the motor (mounting screw ruptured the windings) - a shorted connector or insulation cut  - or anything blocking the motor from turning (a screw from your work bench trapped inside on the magnets).
  5. to reverse the direction of rotation of a brushless motor exchange any 2 of the 3 motor wires
  6. Use a power meter to ensure you are not overloading the ESC at WOT (full throttle for the prop) - ESC works hardest at mid throttle - so it's useless to think that if you don't fly full throttle you won't overheat the MOSFET because you are not using all the amps - completely opposite - the ESC will overheat if the kv of the motor is too high for the props used.  You must do a WOT check and make SURE at full throttle the MAX amps are 22amps or less !!!!!
