Default Vcontrol and Kontronik Jive not working

Hi all

I am trying to switch over to vcontrol from futaba but am having problems.

I am having major problems getting my kontronik jive esc to work with the vcontrol. I am using mini vbar with a vcontrol satalite. I have tried various things to get it working but still no joy. Its like the jive is not seeing 0 throttle as I dont get any initialisation beeps or red blinks on the esc.

I am trying to switch over from a futaba radio and this is really upsetting me. Here is a video link of what I am trying. I have also tried a lot of different methods. Please let me know if you have any ideas on sorting this

here is the link -
Vbc and Jive not working - Please help (2 min 39 sec)


Really appreciate any help and I hope to get this sorted

Kind Regards

Matt Dukes

I can't remember exactly. Been a year since I did mine.
I remember it driving me nuts, but can't remember why. I wanted to toss the jive across the room.

Maybe just move on and keep going without the beeps? See what happens.

You're doing this as per rhe wicki. Hmm.

Are motor run, motor on, etc all in on mode when you do this? Does it matter?

Maybe try the jive pro esc wizard?

MOTOR switch stays OFF when you do the stick programming, as the direct motor control is activated.

Connect a servo to the ESC port of the mini VBar and see if it moves as expected. I have helped him on FaceBook as well.
