BLHeli_S ESC Compatibility
I noticed the VOXL ESC v2 is out of stock.
Is there any way to use the VOXL with a BLHeli_S compadible ESC?
Also, what was the teams reasoning behind building a ModaAI ESC?
P.S Is there a timeline for restocking them?
Yes, BLHeli ESCs are supported with VOXL Flight and Flight Core. See documentation here: https://docs.modalai.com/voxl-flight-datasheet-connectors/#j1007---8-channel-pwm--4-channel-dshot-esc-output-connector
The ModalAI ESC has a number of advantages for tightly integrated products:
- Digital / UART communication
- Closed loop RPM control produces generally more efficient systems
- Feedback control to detect obstruction or motor failure.
- Built in USA
We will bring this back in stock once we can source the appropriate MCU. The chip shortage is especially relevant to motor controllers
