I have seen that too.
However i cant quite figure out all the PINs, as on the Left Side y ou have 5 Sets of 3 Pins and below 2 more rows, on the right Side you have 8 rows, so it could be either up to 8 Motor Outputs on the right side and 5 Channel inut on the left side and 2 outputs for maybe a Camera-gimbal.
However if i use a Gimbal i would also like to see Inputs to adjust the Gimbal in flight to get a different Angle of my aerial Shots/Videos..

Well lets see what HK is offering in this Package.
The 2 Pin i think 1 may be for a low voltage alarm/buzzer.


I am still waiting to find out some more info about the new Heavy Lifter Frame they had announced in a Newsletter last week.... but no Pictures were included

I'm guessing/hoping that the six pins on the lower left are for JTAG/SWD programming. The two-pin header is likely for battery voltage detection but there should also be a buzzer output unless that's underneath.
It they have any sense they should include a CPPM input so that you can have 8+ RC channels in.

I really hope that if it is a Multiwii clone they release the source. I'd hate to have to stop buying their batteries on principle.

There is a new photo of KK2 out on twitter. But can't identify anything on it.
On the left side second board from bottom you can guess it has a ATMEL print on the controller.
EDIT: If I counted correctly 44 legs. It could be ATmega1284?

That doesn't look like 48LQFP... That's a 44TQFP... Maybe some atmel ARM chip?
Or maybe AVR XMega lulz

HK doesn't do evolution (or revolution) - just look at KK board and the 'new' i86 board (=Eagle clone)
