    KK V2 - with Accelerometers & Auto-level!

    Here it is ladies and gents... The new KK board designed by Kaptain Kuk himself to include better low drift surface mount gyros and accelerometers for better performance and easier flying. Plus all the different firmwares are already on the chip and you can use the LCD interface to pick, plug and play! Full PID tuning. Oh and its only $30 or if you use my buddy code, $18 (within the next 15 days). I ordered one this morning before it went on backorder but if you order it now you'll get the next batch.

    Designed by the Grand father of the KK revolution, Rolf R Bakke, exclusively for HobbyKing, the KK2.0 is the evolution of the first generation KK flight control boards. The KK2.0 was engineered from the ground up to bring multi-rotor flight to everyone, not just the experts. The LCD screen and built in software makes install and setup easier than ever. A host of multi-rotor craft types are pre-installed. simply select your craft type, check motor layout/propeller direction, calibrate your ESCs and radio and your ready to go! all of which is done with easy to follow on screen prompts!

    The original KK gyro system has been updated to an incredibly sensitive dual chip 3 Axis gyro and single chip 3 axis accelerometer system making this the most stable KK board ever and allowing for the addition of an Auto-level function. At the heart of the KK2.0 is an Atmel Mega324PA 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller with 32k of memory. An additional 2 motor output channels have been added to the KK2.0 allowing for a total of 8 motors to be controlled (Octocopter). A handy Piezo buzzer is also included with the board for audio warning when activating and deactivating the board.

    If your new to multi-rotor flight or have been unsure about how to setup a KK board then the KK2.0 was built for you. The 6 Pin USBasp AVR Programming interface ensures future software updates will be quick and easy.

    Specs.

    Weight: 21 gram (Inc Piezo buzzer)
    IC: Atmega324 PA
    Gyro: InvenSense Inc.
    Accelerometer: Anologue Devices Inc.
    Auto-level: Yes
    Input Voltage: 4.8-6.0V
    AVR interface: standard 6 pin.
    Signal from Receiver: 1520us (5 channels)

    (Custom Mix via the "Mixer Editor" option)

    The Mixer Editor allows you to adjust where and how much signal the motors receive from stick input and sensors. This allows you to create any configuration possible with up to 8 motors or servos.


    Whats is a Multi-Rotor Control board you ask?


    The HobbyKing KK2.0 Multi-Rotor controller is a flight control board for multi-rotor Aircraft (Tricopters, Quadcopters, Hexcopters etc). Its purpose is to stabilize the aircraft during flight. To do this it takes the signal from the three on board gyros (roll, pitch and yaw) then passes the signal to the Atmega324PA IC. The Atmega324PA IC unit then processes these signals according the users selected firmware and passes control signals to the installed Electronic Speed Controllers (ESCs). These signals instruct the ESCs to make fine adjustments to the motors rotational speed which in turn stabilizes your multi-rotor craft.

    The HobbyKing KK2.0 Multi-Rotor control board also uses signals from your radio systems receiver (Rx) and passes these signals to the Atmega324PA IC via the ail, ele, thr and rud inputs. Once this information has been processed the IC will send varying signals to the ESCs which in turn adjust the rotational speed of each motor to induce controlled flight (up, down, backwards, forwards, left, right, yaw).

    Note: A user manual is available under the files tab.
    *Royalties paid on each unit sold to Rolf R Bakke, the original KK Designer.

    I wasn't going to bother, but the price is just silly - even at $30. Or $27.99 that I paid anyway after I waited on the page. Looking forward to testing this out

    I feel kinda stupid for ordering the new i86 board now. And I have 3 unused KK boards sitting in a drawer, lol... but for $20-$30 yeah it'd be silly not to order one of these! Hopefully the auto-level works good.

    I have one on order as well, gonna use this for my FPV quad build... Zombie Frankenquad! I have high hopes that this board will be all that it is advertised as. I think auto level will be a great feature for a FPV rig.

    looks pretty good. I guess since it is less than 2 weeks no one has tried it in the field yet? I think auto level is all I will really need of such advanced features.

    I ordered one anyways, maybe to try in my new tricopter. Though I also have a Crius MW SE coming which is only 20 bucks more. Which ever works best, I will go with and stick the other on my dead LotusRC quad.
    There are many uses for your DJIPhanotm cleaning cream. Most don't involve your Phantom though.

    Hi guys!

    Sorry for the dumb question but Im new to multirotors platforms.

    In order to complete a quad build, wich items I need aside from this board?

    I make a list of what I think is needed just correct me please :

    4 brushless outrunners
    4 ESC
    4 Props
    1 frame
    1 or 2 Li-Po batts.

    And of course my RC gear and probably wanted to hook up also video gear in the future...

    Is that all?

    Thanks for any help.

    Martin

    yeah pretty much. Don't forget extra wire to lengthen motor/esc wires.
