Jazz Maverick also released (actually pre-released) the version of the BLHeli_S firmware with 48kHz PWM and free(!) bidirectional DSHOT telemetry for “L” type (BB10 type MCU) ESCs. Also, the experimental firmware for 96kHz PWM was posted for testing! The thread on RCGroups: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2640796-BLHeli_S-Smooth-as-Silk/page381
Note: firmware is still in beta stage, you should be very careful when testing it. It is recommended to use current limiter for first test spin.
