DIY NRF51 Now Works on FW4/5

I have the only 2 working ones :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
thanks to @b264 for donating his never powered on betas to me, I was able to “finish” them and everything is working

Firmware 6… HM10… And ack?

Well that’s news to me… Thanks… Perhaps I’ll give it another go… Or bite the bullet and just go NRF… That looks like the future!

if sticking to ack hm10 is your only option, if you want 4/5 then nrf is your only option

and yeah I’ve been running ack on my escapes forever with hm10

Well ack seems like a good fall-back point if everything goes crab-wise, so I believe I’ll always have a known good motor-controller that works on ack… But ack, as you know is a dead-end… If I’m to go forward like the rest of the esk8ing hominids nrf is the way, presently!

Thanks for the post buddie!

Just go w nrf man. Hm10 is becoming obsolete, if it isn’t already. Additionally, it’s not hard to flash these nrf modules using swd. Well worth it

Yes, it’s true. @Scepterr has what are probably 99% likely to be the only two functional B-Boxes in the world. The unicorn of unicorns.

Im scared to ask - is this one of those situations where buying a MetrPro Unity… vs a a MetrPro is going to make or break the functionality.

Background: Raptors (Since removal of the Stock enertion PCB was the easist and most impactful single change that was ever done) - Im looking to use my WAND with the board.

Wand uses nrf52xxx, which act as both receiver and BT. This means you could use it w vesc tool app, assuming you have an Android.

Fair warning, some of these cheap modules are abit unstable. Add a 1uF capacitor over the ground and vcc and it usually fixes it.

Lazy option available if you don’t want to flash and make your own connector.

I tried this with an nrf51822 on 4.12hw, when i try connect in the SWD prog tab it says: ‘‘Could not recognize target’’, any ideas?
~e~ over openocd it worked flawlessly so its not the module.

Why is that?. why NOT pair NRF remotes?
I have a controller from a cheap chinese esc that went wrong and i wanna used with vesc. I should buy a nrf52xx insted for nrf51xx?
Im looking for compatibility, blu config and remote

Could you send a few screenshots or short video how to flesh nrf51822? I have bought it and I can not flesh it.:smiling_face_with_tear:
