    Hello
    On my 'non 3D' F210, one of the 2 CCW ESC burnt (due to a capacitor in short circuit).
    I replaced it by a new one (non 3D CCW ESC), but the motor driven by this new ESC turns slowly with a lot of 'holes' (kind of vibration) => KO

    => I did an ESC Calibration by Cleanflight : nothing better.

    => I swapped the 2 CCW ESC : the issue follow the new ESC... (which means the motor and the mainboard are fully OK ).

    Any idea ?
    Is it possible that ESC firmware is not compatible with my current FC ? Is it possible to reflash the FW of these Walkera ESC ??

    Thanks a lot for your help !

    I don't know of any way to burn FW for Walkera ESCs.

    They do not get FW updates and are burnt at the factory. So should be the correct version if it has the correct model number.

    The best I can suggest is that you check and clean all connectors on the new ESC. If that does not work contact the seller and advise it is faulty.

    Thanks for your quick answer.
    Yes, I think the new part is faulty. The seller asked me for sending it back to him, but just for a cash back because no other part in stock...:(
    All connectors seem perfect : very clean gold, no black color, no dust, ...
    It could be just 1 solder issue on 1 phase output, because it seems that the motor is spinning on 2 phases only... But if I cut the heatshrink, no warranty anymore on this new faulty ESC...
