I was having some made up. £99 tested ready to plug in on v6 board. This price includes postage, packaging and paypal fees to anywhere in the world. If you need insured tracking it is £6.75 extra.

If anyone needs one just let me know.

Hehe I am in the UK and it is GBP. Price for 1 controller. It is a lot cheaper to build your own, but it is quite time consuming. Check out the website www.kkmulticopter.com Other people are selling partially completed boards in the classifieds section.

Cheers,

I'm getting some success after changing R11 to 4K7, but the last fuse doesn't check properly, any idea?
Nial, did you say you calculated FF and not F9?

I think that last fuse pertains to the boot flash size on this particular type of chip. It shouldn't affect the programming, but then I am not familiar with that USBtiny programmer. I did calculate it as FF. That related to a Boot flash size of 128 words as opposed to the the F9 of 1024 words boot size.

pretty well done, and you can add one country you forgot : France

Bob

PS : ATmega is working on one board,I guess it does on the other one as well...

Australia
Canada
Argentina
Norway
Italy
United Kingdom
Germany
Finland
Brazil
Portugal
Sweden
Romania

My guess is the other guys who have made the different PCB's have a similar list.
I think thats pretty impressive myself. I guess its proof that this simple little controller by KK is a hit all over. Well done.

so I succeeded to flash the complete board with AVRStudio4, but not the one that is not complete.
I checked the ATmega once more for shorts, but none.
I will walk the dog and get some fresh air, then try again and report...
Anyway, I'm happy I succeeded, I want to see how this flies

Bob

@Jakub : did you forget about me? I haven't forgotten your offer

EDIT : 2nd board is flashed, I believe the USBTiny just stalled after flashing the first processor. It needed to be disconnected from the PC before flashing the new device.
All is good, now tuning begins (drumrolls)

almost done, just missing some crucial information : which is motor 1, motor 2 and so on?
I forgot if the quadro software is in native X or +?

Thanks,
Bob

thanks Niall
So I guess arrow is facing M1 and software mode is +, not X, correct?
Is there code for native X? KK is flying in X isn't he?

Correct it is natively +. I think the people flying x are using TX mixing.

Cheers,

KK
R10 -> 68 ohm
C5, C6, C8 -> 0.68uF

Why you not write e-mail to me? This is not my privat forum

R10 - IT IS 39Ohm, not 68oHm - look at scheme!
http://www.skanowanie.com.pl/bzibziak/diagram.jpg
When you found info about 68ohm?

C5, C6, C8 can be differen value - I'm tested 1uF - working
perfect, don't worry I simply can not find 0.68uF
