There are a couple of programs in the files tab also, KKmulticopter flash tool etc and instructions.
Multirotors are a learning curve, to build, and fly. Read, read, and read some more ... ask questions. Search on this forum under hobbyking v3.0 control board, or in the KK threads and it will all become clear. (as a note ... I am not 100% sure that this board will actually fly a Y6 ... maybe someone can clarify that ??)

This is the USB tool you will need (or something very similar.)
http://rctimer.com/index.php?gOo=goo...6&productname=

As for programming it and software:
http://lazyzero.de/en/modellbau/kkmulticopterflashtool

And for setup:
http://www.kkmulticopter.kr/index.html?modea=manual

Read everything on these pages, and you should be pretty close.

Or buy one of these: Perfect for noobs (like me - I have two and one like you)
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...rol_Board.html

They work out of the box and are field programmable, no computer required.

Chuck,

The orange color will add some orientation help and sort of dress it up a little! It certainly will not hold a candle to what you did to yours! You did some fine work!

To answer your question on the prop balance! I have not got to the part of my construction yet, so I really can't say how well balanced they are right out of the box. But yes, I did purchase my props, motors, and ESC's from RCDude.

Just to pitch RCDude a little, I have used him on several of my projects. He is a wealth of information and he goes out of his way to answer any questions you might have. He has good quality products and he stands behind them.

Hi Rob,

I have attached a pdf document with the setup for the KK2.0 Board.

I'm still getting mine dialed in... 5 props and 4 bent shafts later, I'm still working on it. Once I get a reasonable KK2.0 board setting I'll let you know!

I'm guessing most of the bent shafts and propellers are on the lower motors ... that's the down side of Y6's .

Chuck,

Thank you very much for the PDF! I did PM you, but I am sort of new at the blog stuff so I am still learning! Thank you again for all your help!

I have just about got the paint work done on the frame, then I can start the build on my Y650. I also have a Quad build as well that I am into about half way. My thought is it would make for a better learning process before I tackle the Scorpion. I am using the same KK2.0 board on it as well.

Thanks again!

Rob

Baca,

That was a great video! Really like the close up shots! There sure are some great looking Scorpions on this blog. I am moving along with mine as well as the Quad I am building.

Here is another photo of the finished parts that I have painted. Paint work complete, so now I can start the build!

Hi Mark,

I going to need all the help I can get to keep the Scorpion on tract! Now that the paint work is completed I will start the build process. I am also making headway on my Quad! As you know this will be the machine I do my learning on before I attempt to fly the Scorpion.

Rob

Hehehehe... you're right. I did still manage to bend one top shaft - but, the shafts are quite long, so I'm blaming that.

Chewin through props like crazy, but loving it.

Most motors have shafts that are too long. Here is what I do .... drill a hole in a piece of cardboard and push it onto the motor shaft (after removing the prop adapter, of course). This acts to stop any debris going into the motor. Next, use an angle grinder and cut off wheel and lop off the excess shaft, so that the prop adapter sits down onto the motor bell. Tidy up the burrs, and rough up the motor shaft with some coarse sandpaper. This helps avoid bent motor shafts, reduces vibration, and gives the collet prop adapters a good grip on the motor shafts. Angle grinder sounds brutal but it only takes a second and any heat generated is minimal. Just avoid any debris getting into the motor.
