Kiss 18A doesn't calibrate

Postby furynick » 03 Aug 2015 18:30


I bought 4 Kiss 18A ESC and I'm trying to calibrate them. After entering ESC calibration mode (pixhawk) one of them don't calibrate.

The LED light when powered then shut as all others ESC do. When I arm, only 3 ESC LED turn on.

Is there any troubleshooting guide ?

Thanks for your help,

Hello Nicolas,

German ESC-userguide ( is telling this steps to calibrate the ESC:
- connect the ESC directly to the RC-reciver
- turn on RC and move the according stick to max throttle
- connect the LiPo with the ESC (power up your ESC) and wait till signal Sound
- reduce throttle on RC to Minimum (move the according stick to min throttle) and wait, till ESC restarts and pieps


I used Software calibration for my ESC.
Please take a look here:

I hope my answer is helpful for you,
