No problem. I'm just trying to get this thing to work..So far, only one motor is working perfectly.

hmm..I don't understand why my calibration is not working. Should I post a video of my whole process?

ESC set to NIMH battery (even when using lipo from what I understand)? It is supposed to be. Medium throttle typically works.... no LV cut off...

Interesting. The ones I had trouble with were supposedly the same as urs, but they were unmarked. Never could get them to calibrate and eventually have up. I never used those with the naza. Are they on the compatible esc list?

I checked the list for him and there are a couple of people using them. For some reason I thought there were two versions of those ESCs labeled the exact same with different insides (typical in Chinese goods). One would work, one wouldn't. There was a particular chip that was too slow.

Yeah they are on the compatiable esc. list.

I actually think I've calibrated them.. Still having the same problems though.

ESC Calibration & Programming (2 min 29 sec)


1 Minute in... watch the entire thing though.

I'm not a pro at this... just helping. There may be a way to do it without a card.

I'm trying to do the programming of ESCs now.

Do I need to reverse the throttle..I'm not entirely sure if my Turnigy 9x is set up correctly. Could you lead me to a proper guide?

Plug it into the Naza assistant... which way does the throttle move when you move it up and down.

I was mucking around inside the turnigy 9x.

I've OFFICIALLY set all the calibrations of the escs. FINALLY.

I heard the two beeps...moved the stick down...then heard the 3 beeps + 1 long beep. Thank you guys so far :P

Now that it is officially calibrated...I'm going to now try and program it. Are these the correct settings?

Brake: off
Battery Type: NiMh (even though I have a LiPo)
Cuttoff mode: reduce power
Cuttoff threshold: medium
Startup mode: soft
Timing: low? (or medium)

You all have been great help. Especially me being a royal pain in the a**

I saw on the spreadsheet most people with Cutoff = Off, Timing = Medium, Startup = Normal, Battery = NiMh
