This ESC has been discontinued by APD - for an alternative please see Flycolor X-Cross HV 5-12S BLHeli32 ESC - 120A

Our stock is the latest V2 Edition: V2 hardware features some notable enhancements. These improvements include a built-in bootloader for configuration, passthrough firmware updating from a supported flight controller, Bi-directional DShot, and UART pin overvoltage protection. They are flashed with production release FW 2.3.0 (they are backwards compatible with legacy V1 FW). V2 F-Series ESCs have been designed to be a drop-in replacement for the existing units, ensuring a seamless transition for customers.

New Feature Set (V2)

  • Configuration of drive parameters, signal types and fault handling
  • Bi-Directional DShot for RPM Filtering support
  • On board bootloader
  • Passthrough firmware updating and configuration
  • Additional Telemetry types: PWM Telemetry and RPM Output
  • High-speed telemetry rates when operating DShot and ProShot
  • Reversible operation support (full forwards to full reverse)
  • Dynamic signal quality checks across supported input protocols
  • Hardware protection for UART programming pins

We have designed the V2 F-Series ESCs to be a drop-in replacement for the existing units, ensuring a seamless transition for our customers.

The APD F-Series ESCs bring forward a ground-breaking new design utilising a Powerful 32-bit F3 processor running brand-new firmware (APD Proprietary) developed from the ground up.

The F3 processor ensures no input commands are missed, even at the highest input update rates. Its bleeding-edge features include ‘PWM-frequency dithering, and Active Phase-current Demagnetisation to ensure the smoothest control at high power, whilst maintaining maximum efficiency.

Compatible with the latest Protocols including ProShot up to 3MBs/S.

With peak power ratings up to 9kW, these ESCs will have no trouble powering your craft.
