Help!
Hobbyking KK board help

i need some help before tomorrow if at all possible.

the situation:
tricopter with the 3.0 board flashed with any firmware just sits there and the tail servo jiggles a little bit. control input makes it do absolutely nothing, I can "arm" it but then it goes back to doing nothing........ i can plug the motors in to my receiver and they all spin up and the servo works too, just not through the board.

any input would be appreciated and if somebody can help me faster via a phone call or skype or something that'd be awesome
thanks

ok, I'll bite.Have you calibrated the esc/motors?
If so then are the connections to the board from the esc's oriented properly?
Signal wire to the signal pin?

well i've tried calibrating but it doesn't do the normal beeping everybody else gets, it does it's same "i don't do anything business"
i know all the connections are good, i'm using redbrick esc's, i just thought of that, is that bad?

no, just ignore that. everybody gets that
It appears that the flash was successful, your flight control board is now ready to talk to the esc's.
So, now you need to calibrate the esc's.
PLEASE REMOVE PROPS
1. transmitter throttle stick to full on
2. turn on transmitter
3. turn on receiver (plug in battery)
4. hear esc's beep
5. move stick to low position
6. hear esc's confirm beep
your esc's are now calibrated.
