I just did a bench setup on the newest Flyfun 160HV Opto ESC.
My setup is HW ESC, HW Phase Sensor, Icon2, Jeti.

Everything works fine (inc. Icon2 Gov, and the RPM reported to the Icon), BUT, I have no ESC telemetry like I was able to get out of an older 130HV Opto.

The wiring lead coming out of the ESC is a single 5 conductor Ribbon terminated in (1) a B,R,W servo connector labeled on the ESC frame as "-,+,p" and works as the programming connection, and (2) B, space, W servo lead marked "-,s", and works as the throttle lead.

I was hoping I could use the "p" lead in the programming cable for ESC telemetry, but it ain't happening.

UPDATE: This old mind forgot to add the ESC data to the Icon logging parameters list....all is working now.

Glad you got this solved. Adding telemetry really helps with peace of mind.
