Calibrating mounted ESC with Futaba

I made a short tutorial about calibrating already mounted ESC with a Futaba transmitter.

I prefer calibrating all the ESC's at the same time. Do a hex or an octo and you'll understand why.

I see. I've done it on my octo but I didn't get how I will understand why..
How do you connect all the ESC to the transmitter?

Anyhow, I finished my X8 now and it fly great.
I have left only the vibrations in the gimbal to deal with.

THere's a couple ways to do that. One is to buy and cut up a bunch of servo extensions to make what's essentially an octopus with 6 or 8 (preferably 8) servo plugs at one end with all of them coming together into one wire/plug at the other. Plug all the ESC's into the octopus and the single end into the receiver.

Another way is to spend about $13.00 and order a Vulcan multi ESC calibration connection board from Addictive RC. That's both faster and cheaper than cutting up a bunch of servo extensions.
