OK guys do you think she will fly???

From the joke of a AD on MultiRoto Classifieds I give you The Bucket Master 1 gallon PoBoy Quad. She is almost complete hopefully she will be getting her wood up tomorrow afternoon when I get in from work and finish her off. for now she is running a KK Black board 5.5. I just got to lay the motor mounts out drill them and mount the landing gear and battery holder. Here is some pictures of where she stands no and I wis I had somew scales because she is lite real lite. Thats the only thing that worries me maybe to lite.

Hello,


where is the +ve pin on the kk board?
I didnt find it.

I have soldered the +V from Lipo to the + Power Terminal and the GND from the Lipo to the - Power Terminal on the kk board.

But the system must be able to meassuere the lipo voltage to check if it is under the defined value? But where does the ÁController gets this information. I must solder a cable from +V ( power Terminal ) to the unkown position of the so called +ve pad
Please tell and show me where it is

regards

There is a thin link from the top (+ve) power distribution track to the uC (via resistors) so it can measure the voltage.

ok but if i go to menu point LVA/Calibrate, on the display there is not the actual voltage.
It shows me only fiction. At last there was 24V

I use 3S !!

I have only soldered one wire from my lipo v+ to the power terminal ring and another wire from my lipo v- to the v- terminal ring.

Have i forgett a connection to solder?

Hi. You also must have the esc connected. As the ground is coming from the esc.
For safety reason no direct ground connection from the lipo. It connect via the esc signal ground.

Any 12V Buzzer should be fine.
I got those ones: http://www.ebay.de/itm/ws/eBayISAPI....m=320740088876

They work great on my KKPlus 5.5e...

Well... After three months of waiting for parts and reading thousands of posts on these and other forums, my quad finally got some air time today. The frame is a Stinger Quad from RadicalRC. Motors are 850Kv RCTimers. ESCs are super cheap no-names from eBay. KKPlush 5.5e controller.
My first attempts were pretty discouraging. The 10X4.6 EPP props chewed up a lot of grass, but none broke. After trying to get it off the ground with no success, I hit the forums again and found that I had the wrong motor numbering. After fixing that, it flew but needed a little tuning. I increased the roll and pitch gyros and turned OFF duel rates and set the throttle end point back to 100. After that, it took off and hovered nicely.
Unfortunatly, I think the old LiPo I used is a bit pooched. I could get it to hover at about six feet, but it would start losing altitude after about ten seconds. Even going to full throttle wouldn't keep it flying. New batteries ordered... more waiting.
Thanks a ton to all the helpful individuals on these forums for answering everyone's rookie questions. All my questions were answered without even asking.

Glad you sort out the model finally. we are learning at the same time as way too many dynamics so some reading and asking always get you somewhere.

As for the buzzer, Kornetto is correct. Here is the note:
5.5e: 12V buzzer as the driver now output the same voltage as your lipo power. if you use 3V, it is around 12V, if you have a 4S setup, please make sure you have the correct buzzer or LED

5.5d: it is using 5V buzzer
