Throttle calibration problem of Hobbyking Blueseries ESC 20A

I have purchased 6 of these ESCs and whenever i enter the programming mode by putting the throttle stick at full and then powering the ESC,the beep sequence for brake setting starts. no beep is heard for the throttle calibration like mentioned in the manual. im stuck at the throttle calibration. anyone having the same problem? and what is the solution or am i doing it wrong?

No, there's 4 beeps first which means throttle calibration, then followed by _*_* for brake.

The exact same thing happens to mine. I have just been assuming that I can't cal the throttle without also toggling the brake. I just repeat the process to make sure the brake is off, and I assume that along the way it gets the throttle cal. I've been meaning to get a programming card for these model escs.

There's regular beeps before brake setting beeps. Its really easy to tell the difference.

My last test was the same. The calibration will toggle the brake.

So I will do the calibration once more if the first has brake on.

Howdy, I use this esc as well and it seems correct that the beeps which set the brake are the first that you hear.. but... doing the full to low throttle change in the first 4 seconds does the calibration AS WELL as the brake on/off... so you have to set the brakes to on and then do the cal which also turns the brake off.

Stooopid programming.... I just bought a program card......

I recently bought a batch of the 12 A blueseries ESCs. This particular batch does not suffer the effect of throttle cal toggles braking option. Nonetheless, i'm using the programming card.
