Recalibrating Controller TriggersUpdated 7 days ago

You will need to recalibrate your controller if your minimum or maximum throttle percentages are not accurate, or if you have replaced your springs or triggers.

How do I know I need to re-calibrate my triggers?

An example of when you need to re-calibrate your triggers is when you squeeze the throttle all the way in, the display reads 98%, not 100%. Alternatively, if you release the throttle and it does not return to 0%.

Watch the video below to learn how to recalibrate your controller.


1. Turn on controller using the power button. 

2. Press and hold the cruise control trigger for 3-5 seconds to release the LCK feature.

3. Press cruise control trigger, and single tap of the power button

4. Use short taps of power button to scroll through menu (8 times), Select 9. Calibration

5. Press and hold power button to open calibration menu.

6. Squeeze throttle trigger smoothly in to 100%, the release the trigger.

Ensure it says, 'Cal. OK'.

7. Squeeze cruise control trigger smoothly in all the way. Ensure it says, 'Cal. OK'.

Note: If it does not say 'Cal. OK', you will need to re-do the calibration.

8. To confirm, press and hold power button for about 4 seconds. It will then go back to the main menu.

9. Press cruise control trigger to exit the menu. 

10. Squeeze throttle trigger to ensure it reads 100% when fully depressed.
