  This 4 in one ESC has a 5v BEC on it.....Should I refrain from putting 5v on the Motor output rail?

  It's a bit lumpy, smooth with the props at idle but lumpy as I advance the throttle...?

  Not got VBATT on the FC yet though and it needs that for the onboard 5v Reg....So its getting its 5v from the ESC, maybe its a dirty 5v supply?

Actually - I don't think I did yet.  I was making some notes to finish off a few tutorial videos, but I haven't done a specific one on it yet !

But yes, if it runs oneshot125, it's a significant improvement over PWM, so run it if you can

  I tried 125...It wont have it...lol...No surprise there.

Good work, but also you can calibrate the ESCs via Betaflight in the motors tab (I made a video about that (of course)) and I expect iNav does the same.  Basically go to the motors tab, whack the throttle (the on screen version) up to full, plug in lipo, wait for beeps and then move (virtual) throttle down to 0... comfirmation beeps

 Hi Wayne,

  Oh, I was wondering what that was for....Didn't know you did a Tutorial, must watch that now..If it will run on Oneshot125 will that be better than PWM ?

The fact that the beeps are different means the ESC's are seeing the PWM but not happy with it. Probably.
Is it possible that 1000 us is not quite low enough for them to arm?
Maybe try 950?

  Give that man a Blue Peter Badge...Success!!

  I had already tried that, but then it got me thinking and then I realised I had used a Servo Tester to calibrate the ESCs using the 4 x Hub which calibrates all 4 at once.  But a servo tester isn't quite the same as the actual RX is it?

  So, I plugged it directly into the RX Throttle Port instead and re-calibrated the ESCs...Bingo, it works.

     Thanks Dill....I can fit the FPV stuff on it now after I do some test flights...:)

  Having connected the throttle hub and the servo tester, I managed to calibrate and then run all four motors simultaneously using the servo tester.

 All looks good with all four motors running smoothly.

 In desperation, I flashed it with Betaflight and it's exactly the same, it's like the ESC does not recognise the throttle protocol,...slow beeps only using PWM Protocol....and rapid beeping using Oneshot125....neither work at all...?

 Ideas anyone....?

Odds on you'll probably need to use standard PWM as your ESC protocol.  If you look at the HobbyKing website, it suggested the later ones supported Oneshot125, but otherwise you'd have to flash them (somehow).

It vaguely reminds me of the older days of ESCs where they'd run their own firmware, but you could flash the silabs based ones with blheli, but you had to use weird and wonderful flashing tools to do so

  Hi Wayne,
                   I think I selected Oneshot 125 but I will try basic PWM too.

  It may be I need to run the calibration routine using the throttle hub, I just watched a U-Tube clip on how to do it using a servo tester....Now I need to find where I put it.

  Im assuming if I have the wrong protocol it just wont run at all...?...ESCs are a mystery to me...lol
