KK Multicopter Question

Are there any KK boards that are self leveling?

You can add FY-20A to help KK flight controller self-leveling.
FY-20A + Quadcopter

Thanks, yes I'm aware of that one. I was wondering if any KK board has built in self levelling. That would be a more simple and complete solution.

KK FC does not use any accelerometer only gyros, so self-leveling is not possible. You might try MultiWiiCopter instead, now they are experimenting with a barometric pressure sensor. So MWC will have an altitude hold.

Mikrokopters are self leveling but insanely expensive.

You can give Hoverfly Pro a go. I have one but it's not installed yet.

Thanks guys.

I guess I'm still not sold on multicopters being a stable FPV platform.

This is after seeing the vids made by FYtech with and without their self-levelling device, the FY90Q.

We need something more than self-leveling. Because the copter still drifts sideways and up and down when levelled.

I'm thinking a conventional heli with gyros would be more stable in hover. It does not drift like that.
