TLDR:Setup your kinect with your controllers, then quit and restart, THEN setup the leap. At that point, you do not need to calibrate again.
I suggest you calibrate the kinect’s positioning first, then work on getting the leap. I see your issue, and the only thing I can gather, is I am not initially setting it all up with a leap motion. Likewise, if the auto calibrate does not work properly, choose th manual option, and align the camera and sensors yourself, so no need for “hands to the side”.
