There is a manual available for download.
But $12 seems pretty cheap.
There's no programming necessary on the cheaper KK compatible boards- all adjustments are done by means of potentiometers on the board. I use the HK KK 2.1 board and like it a lot. I thought it was really easy to set up, and it flies a lot better than I expected.

You do need the programmer to flash these boards to different configurations, but no true "programming" is required for that either.

The multiwii boards do require programming, and have a steep learning curve from what I can tell, although I've never used one. Witespy is selling a pretty cool looking new board called the "Flip" for ~$20.00, and it looks interesting. It's what I'd try if I wanted to go with multiwii code base.
