Help!
KK-mini flying wing

I'm trying to setup a KK-mini to work with my flying wing. Im using a spektrum transmitter and receiver.

The firmware im using is: OpenAero2 beta 10 for KK-mini.

Here is the problem: KK-board looks to be setup and ready for use. Receiver input responds to transmitter, and no error messages are displayed. However, the plane does nothing when using transmitter.

It seems like it isn't armed, or something like that.

What am i doing wrong?

Wiring as such:
Left side of board; Lower 3 pins --> throttle channel receiver, 3 above it --> aileron, rudder (not being used) and elevator on receiver.

Right side of board: Esc --> slot 1, Aileron --> slot 2, Elevator (aileron 2) --> slot 3.

I don't have the mini, but the larger board requires arming. Throttle stick down & right to arm, down and left to disarm. YMMV.

Got it working already thanks to some help from a good hobbyking rep

Now i have a new problem though. The plane is treating each elevon as a seperate channel. They are plugged into ch 6 and 7.

With aileron only 1 moves, and with elevator the other one moves. They are not mixing at all.

Got it set as "flying wing" in mode, done no custom mixing.

Bump.

Anybody know what is causing each elevon to move on separate channels (not mixed)? Elevator moves one, aileron moves other.

Not sure why you used a KK board. A P1 gyro is a far better option for a wing and more compact. (and cheaper) also cleaner wiring and made for the purpose.

I used it because it costed 10 dollars, and I was making a hobbyking order anyways. Nobody knows why it is doing this?

Hi eligri,
I had KK2.1.5 with OpenAero2, and it worked just fine. I don't remember exactly, but i think i did mixing in the radio. After you've done that, just switch stabilize profile on, and see if KK is moving elevons in the right direction when you shake the plane. If not, you can reverse gyro direction in some menu, if I remember correctly.

Thanks!

Kinda got it working now. Everything moves right via controller, but only EITHER elevator or aileron will move right with gyro's (which one depends on servo reversing). Is there any way to reverse the gyro only, so that both will work?
