The green kinda wing? Yeh they look pretty good.

Finally got the KK2 working with OpenAero2 on the Bixler, but now there is now camera stability output!? What thee eff?!

So, KK2 will be crammed in and used for the camera gimble only =[

Well the V-70 showed up. And aside from the cramped cockpit it's a lovely thing! My 3600 3s JUST fits. Externally mounted FPV gear methinks. That's fine though. I'm used to having to strap things to the outside :P. The motor is mental! looking forward to the maiden .

I have an X8.











In the box. Along with everything to make it fly. One day. Maybe. Or someone can come and buy it and fly it. I'm always changing my mind...

I want to try the SSG on a fixed wing too at some point. At the moment I have got one on my folding quad using a MultiWii controller - which is ok, but not yet perfect. I got a KK2 board to act as a stand alone controller on the FW, but put it on my little quad first, to see how well it performed and like it so much it might just stay there!

i recon it'll be simple. If I set it up as a wing and give it loads of down signal it's just a matter of leverage I hope

Micro modules??

Just wondering if anyone had one of those micro Foxtech 200mw 5.8G tx modules lying around that they wouldn't mind parting with for some ? Fried my one and I don't really want to have to wait months for one from Chinaland

Cheers!

Just been looking and can't see anyway to use the camera stabiliser whilst using the KK2 with the plane... =/

Got it working just on camera mode, just needs a lot of tweaking for speed and smoothness =]

I've got one you can burrow RCM.

Al. I've got two which I didn't get on with. Thought they were 5v as well like the FPVHobby. Ones. Wired them up. Read the documentation as the liquid electrical tape was setting. Grrrr. Wiped off as much as I could and de soldered the connections. 20 for the pair? + 3 shipping? If you test them and they end up dud ill refund ya if one or both don't work. I never tested them. PM me.
