# Vertiq All-In-One Motor/ESC Modules
Vertiq makes high performance propulsion systems for commercial and defense UAS. The core design consists of a lightweight, tightly integrated motor and ESC with an embedded position sensor. With closed loop velocity control for the fastest response times available, class leading efficiency, no startup and reverse jitter allowing low speed control and smooth reversibility, and a built in "stow" controller for smoothly placing idle propellers in a preferred direction, Vertiq's modules have significant advantages over other ESCs.
All Vertiq modules support traditional PWM input, DShot, OneShot, and Multishot communication protocols (opens new window). Vertiq's larger modules also support DroneCAN control (opens new window).
# Where to Buy
Purchasing information can be found on the Vertiq website (opens new window).
# Hardware Setup
Connecting your Vertiq module to a PWM output from your flight controller or DroneCAN bus will vary depending on your model. Please see the product data sheets for wiring information.
All Vertiq datasheets can be found at vertiq.co (opens new window).
# Firmware Setup
The best tool to configure your Vertiq module is Vertiq's IQ Control Center application. You can find instructions for installation in Getting Started with Speed Modules Using IQ Control Center (opens new window).
To get started with traditional PWM input or DShot with your flight controller, please see PWM and DSHOT Control with a Flight Controller (opens new window).
To get started with DroneCAN with your flight controller, please see DroneCAN Integration with a PX4 Flight Controller (opens new window).
# Flight Controller Setup
# DroneCAN Configuration
Instructions for integrating the motor/ESC using with DroneCAN can be found in Flight Controller Configuration (opens new window) (in DroneCAN Integration with a PX4 Flight Controller).
These instructions walk you through setting the correct parameters for enabling the flight controller's DroneCAN drivers, setting the correct configuration parameters for communication with Vertiq modules on the DroneCAN bus, ESC configuration, and testing that your flight controller can properly control your modules over DroneCAN.
# DShot/PWM Configuration
Instructions for integrating the motor/ESC using PWM and DShot can be found in PWM and DShot Control with a Flight Controller (opens new window). DShot is recommended.
