Does this thing calibrate new actuators? I'm very new to these turbos so you will have to work with me  :D

There is a calibration command, yes.

Is it already in the box and you just use the app to calibrate once you take it off then calibrate and put it back on?

Pretty much. Calibration is weird, if you notice that you're not really getting full extension one way or the other, the calibration will help reset the zero.

How do you calibrate if you don’t have the app(need to buy android device) and want to use lap top, what software do I need to install to plug into the controller

You'll need the arduino ide.

Plug the USB into your laptop and communicate via the serial interface. All you'll need to tell it is the word calibrate.

After 20s or so type calibrate again to turn it off.

Yeah as long as the LBB version is 2.2.0 or greater, it'll have the calibrate command in the serial area.

Do you do the calibrate command with the actuator installed on turbo?
Thanks

correct.. that way the actuator "feels" where the limits of motion are.
