This process should be the same with any flight controller loaded with CleanFlight.

  1. DISCONNECT LiPo Battery, connect to naze32 board CLI.
  2. Set MIN_COMMAND to 2000.

    set min_command = 2000
    save

  3. Disconnect USB cable to power off the naze32.

  4. Power up the naze32 by plugging in the LiPo battery.
  5. Connect the USB cable to the naze32, enter CLI mode.
  6. Set MIN_COMMAND to 1000.

    set min_command = 1000
    save

  7. A musical tone from the motors should be emitted, this means all ESC's are calibrated.

  8. Navigate to the "Motors" tab, check if each motor spins to the same input value to verify the calibration was successful.
