Do you mean Throttle calibration? if so it is the same procedure as with most ESC's:

Connect ESC to the Throttle channel of RX, Power TX move Throttle stick to highest/maximum, Power ESC wait for beeps then move Throttle stick to lowest, more beeps & its done!

Manual for programming ESC's is HERE.

thanks for the reply
I know how to do it on the other controllers speed
I do not understand what kind of signal at this controller speed . When lowered the stick Throttle down?
I read the manual, there is about calibration Throttle nothing written.

The manual is for 'Programing' the ESC's only, no Calibration.

Sorry I don't understand what you mean:
"I do not understand what kind of signal at this controller speed . When lowered the stick Throttle down?"

If you know how to do it on other ESC's then you just do that!

I played with one yesterday and it does not seem to have throttle calibration like Plush or HobbyWing have. Perhaps it has automatic calibration.

I set the throttle to max then connected ESC, waited for the first beeps and set the throttle to min. All it did was it flipped the brake setting.

Sooo, any headway with calibrating throttle on this ESC? I received mine yesterday and still haven't been able to calibrate it using the "standard" method...

I already installed and maidened my quad with these. Looks like they might have some kind of automatic throttle calibration.... quad with Naza and GPS flies great. Better than with regular ESC. It wobbles a lot less on fast descents, which is a common Naza issue.

It cooperates with Naza perfectly. Plush/SuperSimple/HobbyWing I had to connect Naza first and only then power up ESCs to initialize properly. Multistars initialize with no problem when powered up Naza and ESCs at the same time.

For me a big plus is changing rotation direction via card, because I don't use connectors so changing rotation of a motor was a bit of headache, since I needed to re-solder two wires again. No big deal but little things just make life a bit easier

Yes, I figured it would work great with the Naza. I am puzzled, however, by this "automatic" throttle calibration. I will have to pester some HK product specialists to see whats that about.

I am just guessing it has some kind of automated throttle calibration, since manual does not offer any calibration procedure and "classic" one does not work. I read some ESCs have that.

If you find something out about it, please let us know.

I tried to live chat to a HK Product specialist, but none were available at the moment, so I sent them an email. Will let you know if/when they respond.

Were anyone of you able to find out about the Throtle Calibration... It turns out that the ESCs go directly into programming mode after initializing if you try to set the end points!!!

I am making a model for someone and I am using the Turnigy 9X Radio. I dont think that the auto calibration is good enough because the motors start off at around 10-12% throtle, strange...

Apparently, these look like the same as the MayTech ESCs...

Please update me if anyone figured out what to do...

I've peen pestering HK Product specialist for a couple of days now. Have not received a correct answer as of yet. One of the guys is searching for the answer out of office hours, the others that could be contacted at support@hobbyking.zendesk.com still cannot understand what throttle calibration means, and keep telling me how to set brake modes...

I am speechless at this point...

What do you expect from HK? The fact that you have a guy searching for it at all is what is leaving me speechless.
