Dettlaff: Brushless Blaster Controller (Beta)
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.
We use 4-in-1 Skystars ESCs, and will have custom ESCs available for sale in August for $45, but any AM32 or blheli_32 4-in-1 ESC will work. Using 4-in-1 ESC's not made by Skystars will require the user to rearrange the pins in the cable to match the configuration on the Dettlaff board. Always double check that the pinout on the 4in1 ESC matches up with the pinout on Dettlaff! The Dettlaff mounting holes match standard 30mm ESC mounting holes to allow Dettlaff to be mounted on top of the ESC. Make sure to put enough spacers between them so that the two boards don't contact. Using individual blheli_32 ESC's is also possible, cut up the ESC cable that comes with Dettlaff and solder it to ESC wires.
Includes a custom USB-C programming adapter, 4in1 ESC signal cable, pusher power cable, and 4 cables for connecting switches to the GPIO ports.
