Dear Hobbykingers,

I am experiecing problems with the calibration of my ESC (Turnigy Trust 45A). When I do my trottle high, and power up the ESC. I get a two high pitched beeps and two low. When I put the trottle down, I get four high and one long low (normal initalization). Two of the four ESC's have this problem. The other two give just a single beep as confirmation.

Anyone has this same problem?

Kind regards,
Fokko

Yes, I am using a Hobbyking 6CH tx/rx. The ESC is plugged on to channel 3.

My question is how can you distinct the difference between transmitter configuration and ESC calibration, in this region lies the problem..

Basically all you are doing is to let the esc know what values to expect from the Tx for min and max.

Is this the ESC you are trying to calibrate, if so scroll down the page till you see the files tab (just under add to cart) click that and download the pdf.
