The ultimate FPV Quad Racer combo on one board! The Afro Race Spec 4 x 20A ESC is the all in one solution for your racing quad project.
Incorporating 4 x 20A ESC's into a single compact unit and then adding a CC3D flight controller allows for a clean and neat central mount of the unit to the frame, reducing weight and cost.
Building on the success of the Afro 4-in-one 20A ESC unit, where the multirotor community assisted in that design, the decision to incorporate a CC3D FC and redesign the board was again the result of consultation with the quad racing community. The result is a fantastic board that will set the standard everywhere.
With a high efficiency, all N-channel MOSFET design, hardware PWM input and crisp throttle response, the Afro ESC series are rock solid and reliable.
The CC3D is an all-in-one stabilization hardware flight controller that uses the powerful STM32 32-bit micro-controller and runs the OpenPilot firmware. It can fly any airframe but in this configuration obviously it is intended for a quad and it can be monitored and adjusted using the powerful and user friendly OpenPilot Ground Control Station (GCS) software.
This version has been developed for the 250 FPV racing class where the demands for a reliable and robust FC and ESC's are greatest but would be equally at home in any quad.

If you have patience and a steady hand, this can be updated to Cleanflight, iNav or Betaflight by getting it into bootloader mode. This is tricky because there are no marked SBL or 3.3V pads, so I shorted a VDD pin on the STM32F103 to BOOT0 then flashed it. Set to flash on connect, set the ESC switch to ON, use a serial adapter (NOT USB) and nothing else plugged in. I have iNav 1.7.2 running fine.Wonderful product, on a diatone blade 150, way too easy to setup. Perfect for beginners, no second thoughts just go ahead and buy.Super simple time and space saver! If you are new to quad building, this little unit is probably the easiest way to get in the air. Because of it's unusual size, it doesn't work well with all frames, but it works great in most 200 and up frames.
My only concern is that I have had several Afro ESCs burn up on me, but they weren't the race spec, they were the cheap little 12As. My hopes are high though, it saves time, weight, space, and money.Keeps things tidy, though it does get to be a bit of a squeeze on the smaller frames. Have one on the glass/nylon 250, and one on a Dubai 210. Waterproofed both of them for snow-bank landings and they seem to be doing excellent.Keeps things tidy, though it does get to be a bit of a squeeze on the smaller frames.

Now I ordered another one for my Nighthawk 200 FPV Racer. I must say, this is a very fine board! Especially within the small Quads it is very welcome to forget about a lot of wiring. It saves a lot of space, and fits perfectly to the Nighthawk 200 and 250. I cannot find any negative point - I love itworks great, runs openpilot or librepilot, currently running a qav180 frame with 2204 2300kv motors and a basic 6 ch RX and it works great, havent tested the esc flashing ports yet but i havent had to so i'll save that for later, i have got it wet yet and it could be a challenge to water proof but it seems to be do-able.
