How to enable Dshot on SP F3 & Test 30A esc’s X210
Hello guys in this article:
I’ve shown you guys how to build the X210.
my X210 is capable of Dshot.
What is Dshot?
Dshot is a new Digital protocal for communication between your flight controler and your ESC’s
Where old PPM signals consisted of short and longer pulses, this code changes that in to bits and bytes.
This has a several improvements:
You don’t have to calibrate the esc’s in BL heli or betaflight, you just set min and max to 1000 and 2000us
You don’t have to set minimum throttle because this will be calculated and spin your props at the absoluut minimum speed when you arm possible.
There is less jitter and stutter caused by interference because bits and bytes (zero and ones) cannot be easily changed by changing magnetic fields caused by alternating current produced by the motors.
The update frequency can be improved in 10fold from what i’ve read and so far understand.
I installed Dshot on my SP racing F3 from the latest commit of Boris B andwho.sytes.net:8080/job/BorisB_BetaFlight/
I also downloaded the latest BL heli 16.42 (experimental Dshot) Hex for my Racerstar 30A esc’s github.com/bitdump/BLHeli
Download and find silabs and then Dshot testcode hex files.

(WARNING DONT FLASH EXPERIMENTAL FIRMWARE ON YOUR FLIGHT CONTROLLER AND ESC”S IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
you basicly need the exact same version that is mapped for the CPU on your esc’s if you use other firmware you will smoke your esc’s.
