I asked this question in an assigned category but I received no answer. Maybe someone can give me a little assistance. I bought 4 Hobbypower 30A ESC and I also have a book called "build your own quadcopter" which follows the Elev-8 Quadcopter. I am not building an Elev-8, but my own. In the book, it says that the ESC need to be programmed with an ESC programming card. Now, my ESC are not the same for the Elev-8.
My question is... Do these ESC need to be programmed or not? Is the book suggesting something particularly for the Elev-8 kit??? I am ready to put my quad together but I do not want to ruin anything.
Thanks for your time.
