KK 2.1.5 flight controller and other gadgets

I would swear that I saw Jim mentioned using the KK 2.1 flight controller on airplane on one the thread here. I can not find it.
I do not fly multi-rotors yet. I do fly large scale gliders and towing planes
I am looking for combination of Flight controller/autopilot/OSD system that would flawlessly work with XPS bits and pieces (system) for safe return home in case of loosing the site the glider . It happens and I am getting older. On board monitoring system in these beasts is a must as well

I will appreciate any suggestions

Mike

Look for "OpenAero2" and "OpenAeroSerial" here on RCGroups. I worked with David to implement the Xtreme protocol and the servo outputs to be like what I use for our products.

KK board won't give you Return To Land. You need to look at APM2.x or Pixhawk for that. GPS is required for position info. there's even a range of mini APM boards if you're short of room. The learning curve is steep but worthwhile. The best value would probably be a Nano feeding CPPM to a mini APM2.x board with a Neo7 GPS embedded outside somewhere.
