Dettlaff: Brushless Blaster Controller (Beta)
Dettlaff boards are back in stock, and v0.5 has a totally redesigned pusher driver circuit which can now drive all types of solenoids and pusher motors!
Brushless flywheel blasters are back! The Dettlaff brushless blaster controller can control up to 4 brushless flywheel over one cable using a 4-in-1 blheli_32 brushless ESC, and supports select fire and burst fire with either pusher motors or solenoids. Come test Dettlaff out on your newest build for a reduced price during the limited beta. All beta Dettlaff boards will be fully updatable with future firmware upgrades required for it to move out of beta testing. Key planned features include closed loop RPM control to make your wheels spin up in half the time, and the ability to set up or configure Dettlaff using a web page on your computer or phone. During the beta, the firmware must be compiled using PlatformIO for each configuration change.
Open source firmware, schematics, and documentation are all available here. This is a beta and the documentation is still being written, don't be afraid to ask any questions in the Discord. Dettlaff uses the ESP-32 microcontroller.
The recommend ESC is the Skystars blheli_32 KO 45A. The Dettlaff mounting holes match standard 30mm ESC mounting holes to allow Dettlaff to be mounted on top of the ESC. The 7cm Extended ESC Cable enables mounting them in different orientations. Make sure to put the thick side of the ESC mounting grommets on top so that the two boards don't contact. Any blheli_32 4-in-1 ESC will work, using other 4-in-1 ESC's but will require the user to rearrange the pins in the cable to match the configuration on the Dettlaff board. Using individual blheli_32 ESC's will require that the user solders a custom cable to connect the ESC's to their Dettlaff brushless blaster controller.
Includes a custom USB-C programming adapter, pusher cable, and 4 cables for connecting switches or potentiometers.
