Still no update for ESC calibration thru HFP?

When can I expect to be able to calibrate ESC's without doing each ESC one at a time? I have a Y6 and Octo that I really dont want to go through one at a time...

i would not... they said a while back that there was something wrong with the throttle calibration through the FC.

i just made a 6 Y servo connector.... takes me like 20secs to calibrate. And you only have to do it once....

I will be a nice feature when it works, but not really necessary (IMO)

Also is there an easier way of calibrating the gyro?

Pointing the board in all directions while mounted is hard, and hard to hold it still.

Those are the accelerometers and will only help when in auto level mode or the gyro calibration is the temperature one.

You need to unplug the FC and then run the temp calibration.

The HF guys have said that they will have a better way to calibrate acc soon
