Developed from the ground up, we wanted to build a truly Multi-rotor specific ESC that would offer the best performance and value in the market today. We wiped the slate clean and looked to the community for inspiration and help in designing an ESC that truly could be known as “The Multi-rotor ESC”
Enter Simon and Hamasaki AKA SimonK and timecop. This combination of hardware and firmware expertise in conjunction with the Hobbyking in house engineering team gave us the edge needed to develop an ESC like no other and hence the Afro series was born.
Boasting high efficiency, all N-channel MOSFET design, jitter-free hardware PWM input, and smooth power response the Afro ESC series are set to change the expectations of multi-rotor pilots around the globe. The Afro ESC series ship with multi-rotor specific SimonK software preloaded! No need to reflash. For added convenience the Turnigy USB linker can be used via the PWM signal lead for any future software updates eliminating the need for complicated flashing jigs or the need to cut open the heat shrink.
MikroKopter I2C compatibility has also been built in as standard. A DIY port is available under the shrink wrap which allows using the ESC with MikroKopter hardware that uses I2C control.
• Now Shipping with OneShot125.

This product was purchased for building the new drones.
This product is a combination of motor and I hope you have purchased together right.
I hope reliably used to drive the motor.
These ESC's are great, the best you can get, especially for this price. With SK firmware you can't go wrong. I've tried diffirent brands of ESC's, and this the second time in I used the Afro's in a quadcopter with great satisfaction. So next Multirotor its Afro for me.
cant go wrong with these ,works perfect
Bought 2 rounds of this and no problem for me. Will purchase again.
Great cheap ESC...I've had no issues so far
Working very well with my multistar motors, can't complain about them really for the price they are excellent
Mighty controllers, they seem to work almost flawlessly with my pixhawk and my naza M v2
Fits with this motor https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=36392 and this harness https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=51687
what a great power unit, along side the multistar 3525-650kv motors i have these mounted on my tarot fy650 running 11" props and a 4000 4s pack with 18min longest flight (pushing it a bit) very happy
I bought many times and these are one of the best esc you can use on multirotor, I hated the 12a version cause it has some syncing issues with some high pole motors. this one doesn't have the same issues
