replace microcontroller on fsesc 6.6 single?

Anyone ever de-solder the microcontroller and replace it? I think I shorted mine by making a crappy enclosure.
There is one post relating to this on the vesc forum.


Hot air station will be required


If you want assistance, add your country to your profile.

If you want to do it yourself, you’ll need a hot air station as noted above and either a ST-Link or another functional VESC to load the firmware.

I’ve done it a number of times with the CheapFOCer, and a few times with some other ESCs (im assuming the one other post was mine since I had issues programming one of them). If you’ve never worked hot-air before its not something that’s very forgiving, you can blow other components right off their pads.

Its doable, but not really something I or really anyone else would consider a “newbie friendly” task.
