Hi guys

I'm using the hobbywing quattro 4in1 ESC with 4 Emax CF2822 motors for my quadcopter.
And i'm using the Multiwii Se v2.0 control board.
I connected all the motor signal cables to the throttle hub and from that to the throttle channel of the reciever. I followed the instructions as given in the manual but the esc never made the appropriate sounds..but the motors started spinning with an increase in throttle.So i thought the throttle ranges were pre configured and went to the next step.


Now I made all the required connections with the control board and the receiver and ESC and when I increased the throttle only 2 motors started spinning. I thought that this maybe because all the ESC's might be set to different throttle ranges  so i connected the ESC again separately to the receiver to calibrate it but now nothing happens  Huh? Huh?

When I increase the throttle the motors just start spinning and they dont even start at the same point! Sad

I need help on how to recalibrate it ..Please

Are you following the steps correctly??

1. Turn on your tx and move throttle to max (your ESC and rx should not be ON at this moment)
2. Plug in the connector from hub to channel 3 of your receiver.

ESC should go in programming mode and then you will hear all the sounds.

No need to connect all 4 motors for ESC calibration. Just connect one motor and MAKE SURE THAT PROPS ARE REMOVED WHILE CALIBRATION

While powerig up the esc if your throttle is set to 100%... the esc will enter into the programming mode.. now you can program that...
Do as satya said it will be al right..
And I know in multi wii it is a head ache to set up the throttle range..
Do try and you will get it...Grin;D

Motors will start singing some beeps. Check the manual for Quattro there are some instructions.

@Arsenal14life like others pointed out, while setting the esc throttle range - did you turn on the radio and set the throttle to max before connecting the esc and battery?
