Ubox vs LilFOCer Footpad connections

Hi all! Was considering using the UBOX 100v for my upcoming build and saw a difference in a couple build videos. Pulldown resistors are used in surfdado’s video but in Leon Chang’s he doesn’t mention them.
So are they needed and are they needed on a LilFOCer (I am guessing no from reading specs/builds but thought I should ask). Also does anyone’s prebuilt connector kits already have them? Ava Spark maybe as they build on Ubox it seems?


Avaspark footpad connectors have the resistors built into the PCB

this caused quite the stir on discord but supposedly you dont even need them anymore on UBOX. They were “surprised” to find out people were still adding them to the newer boxes
