How many frequency should be output to ESC ?

I want to controll brushless motor through ESC.
I have used Arduino Uno. I output pulses with PWM.

How many frequency should be output to following ESC ?

Hi,

The documentation you linked says :
Super high refresh rate, no buffering of the input signal, resulting in more than 490Hz response rate.
Like a usual Simonk Esc.

Using a oscilloscope, and monitor 490Hz PWM signal
Refresh rate can vary (300Hz to 490Hz), motor RPM is based on pulse length.
