- 1. What kind of applications can the E5000 be used for?
Weather-proof and capable of supporting large, heavy-load frames, the E5000 is designed for industrial applications in agriculture, search and rescue, mapping, inspection, and more.
- 2. What DJI flight controllers are compatible with the E5000?
Both the A3 and N3 flight controllers are compatible with the E5000. The E5000’s ESCs, when paired with the A3 and N3 flight controllers, have a protection mechanism for overvoltage, overcurrent, stall and overheat. Additionally, the flight controllers can record critical, real-time information on voltage, current, rotation speed and temperature, enabling further data analysis and maintenance of the system.
- 3. Can I use other motors with the 1280S ESCs besides the M10 and M10 Air?
No. The 1280S ESCs use Field-Orientated Control (FOC). When working with the M10 or M10 Air, the E5000 provides a quick response with a strong thrust, allowing for extremely agile control over large multirotor aircrafts. However, the FOC algorithm was specially designed for the M10 and M10 Air and will likely not be compatible with other motors due to the specificity of its design.
- 4. What does the E5000’s redundant throttle signal mean? Under what circumstances would I use it?
The E5000’s ESCs have a redundant throttle signal design. When a throttle cable — the PWM cable on the ESCs — accidentally disconnects, the ESCs will automatically switch to a redundant throttle signal. This allows data to be received from the flight controller via a JST 3-pin cable, ensuring safer flight. Please note that the redundant throttle signal only works with DJI’s A3 and N3 flight controllers and that the JST 3-pin cable should be connected correctly between the ESCs and the flight controllers.
- 5. Do I need to calibrate the E5000’s throttle?
No. E5000 ESCs do not support throttle calibration. The PPM input range is 1120us-1920us. However, E5000 ESCs are compatible with different throttle frequencies ranging from 30- 500Hz, supporting an Input Voltage of 3.3V or 5V. The E5000 is therefore widely compatible with most flight controllers on market.
- 6. What are the main features of M10 and M10 Air respectively?
The M10 motor adopts an integrated centrifugal cooling system that combines with a circle of cooling fins at its center, significantly improving cooling capacity. It also has excellent weather-proof features for more extreme environments. The M10 Air is built with a lightweight structure that extends flight time effectively.
