Thanks Samcro! I'll have to figure out how to setup expo on my devo 10 (deviation firmware). As usual, more reading to do... ;0)

I'll try to find it to show you my roll rates on the OG settings with no expo. Ill edit this post to add the video if the thread is not too far past it.

edit:// Here you go. sorry for the portrait mode phone video. Definitely requires full screen and HD to see it well. Anyway this was maybe the 3rd flight since I had learned to flip it. I'm sure it can be tuned to be better but I feel comfortable with these settings.

Thanks for the video! So for stick scaling you're using something in the neighborhood of 30 30 90 100?

I thought we needed the faster pitch and roll to power the rotation. Your flips look fine to me! I did my first flip today but my altitude was just a little low I think. I ended up moving fast just about the ground. I'm not sure if it was a bad strap or what but the battery was dragging in the dirt and I had to land it hard. It was ok, just a bit of dirt in the one motor and the battery etc. seems fine - I flew it after in the M 375 no problem. The strap was cut and I think it was the frame that got it. Unfortunately the extra straps I have are totally the wrong size - they're for a 450 CP. I have some generic strips of velcro strapping but it's hard to get a tight squeeze with those.

I might have got that on video. I'll have to check it out later! Thanks everyone... here's hoping for better luck tomorrow.

any one find 6" or 7" props sold in the USA? I see a few overseas but i want to find a less than 3 week lead time vendor.

Chris, if i pick up a One chassis or cnc 258, can you sell a set of props? I know you don't sell spares, but i'd like to get from the same place and not have more in shipping than parts.
thanks

Hi Samcro
I have used "pflhobbyboy on ebay" five times with average of between 9 and 12 days with the last being 11 also.
So far I have gotten what I ordered by I know one of our guys wasn't as lucky - wrong props.

Weekly video of my 258. Unfortunately this ones my last for awhile until I can get around to fixing it. Ripped off one esc and burnt another one out while hitting the ground pretty bad. Oh well repairing things is half the fun in this hobby.

Sorry about the crappy camera angle haha the quad is only visible in the very bottom of the video.
Enjoy

Is this where exponential comes in creating a spot in the centre of the sticks for finer movements then slowly becoming more extreme as you move into the upper and lower ranges of each channel?

Any suggestions from the acrobatic gurus out there?

Thanks!
Hi Rexless,

I'm no guru, either, but I know the KK2 has some expo programmed into it already. It's not programmable, though, like on some other boards.

Other than that, I do not use expo at all in my radio. The same when I fly CP heli. I'm allergic to expo. A lot of guys like it, though.

Here are two excellent videos that explains dual rates and expo very clearly.

Transmitter Dual Rate and Expo Theory, Part 2 of 2 (10 min 46 sec)


Best,

I crashed a few times in one day (pretty hard I might add) and then went to do some night flying sometime after that. Two flights went really well with no issues but on the second flight after a smooth landing the kk2 would not disarm. I didn't think much of it and discoed the battery and went home. The next day i went to fly it and the LCD was blank and the board won't arm. I tried hitting the menu button and powering it with a single esc through the receiver as was suggested on the kk2.0 thread but no luck so far. I've also spot checked my solder joints and they 'seem' good. I plan to check them better tonight. Any other ideas of what it might be? Thanks!

Doesn't sound good to me. I think your KK2 is fried. You can look up RCG user Action Plus. He repairs boards and may be able to help you.

If you want a cheaper alternative, I have a brand new KK2 I can't install for sale because it has a small line of dead pixels on the screen. All is readable, but it's just not like new, though it is new. Never installed. I can let you have it for 25$ shipped. Just an option for you.

Rexless, the flips major pulls in his video cannot be with only 30 on pitch and Roll for stick scaling. Flips way to fast. By "original" settings, I think he means the settings I shipped with the quad.

Best,
Chris

I suppose I can include one set of props but I'd have to mark up the price a bit to cover shipping to me and then to you on them. But really, you're going to need more than one set of props, you know? Getting only one set is like asking to be grounded while waiting for replacement props to arrive in the mail.

Best,
Chris

Hey guys, have any of you had this problem with your kk2. Mine say's sensor calibration - data out of limit. I didn't know if this can be fixed or not.

This usually happens when you move the quad while it's initializing. When you connect the quad to your battery, do not move the quad for the first few seconds.

Thanks Chris. I'll take it. I plan to tear my 355 down tonight and rebuild it to see if it is in fact a bad solder point but even if it works I'd love to have another kk2. I'll PM you for paypal info.

And as far as my settings are concerned I did mean the original settings on an Armattan. Unfortunately as noted above I can't look at the exact settings on mine but I do believe they were the ones that used to be recommended in the first few posts of Chris's for sale ad. Sorry I'm not more help.
