KK Plus V5.5x first impression

Waiting for the final video compilation, here a quick and dirty (bad quality) video...

See how stable the quad is, while descending fast, motors almost off!

Will compile a "better" video later. Have other obligations...

Hey manuLRK - very nice!

Does that quad use FC 28-05 motors - these ones? Running on 3S Lipo? With 8x3.8 props?
Thanks

Simon

Almost, except the props EPP 8x4.5. 3S 1000 30C - 1300 25C

Still need to lighten / power / tune the quad more..., it feels too heavy on the sticks.

More info released

Now with the PCB starting to schedule to the line, time to share some of the PCB design and the requetsed features from the feedback.

Here is the summary of the features of the KK Plus:
Support all KK firmware
Added low voltage alarm ( will provide the C source that you can add on to your own code)
Intergrated Power Distribution board
Support LCD Module for tuning and setup (Great work from Mike to enable PC-less tuning)
Enhanced with upgrade ports (we hear you and we add that as option for you)
- MEMs Module (MEMS Gyro, Acc)
- Future module (still in drawing board)
Variable Pot for easy tuning of VRef so you can use the Gyroof your choice or use the MEMS Module as the picture
PC display of Scope for various sensor data (future open source project)
Bootloader for easy firmware flash (Release soon), this will be good for user who dont have programming knowledge and worried about playing with Fuses of Atmel with the regular AVR programmer

Again, pictures saves a thousands word...

A MEMS Module, perfect! Great job!

Are the switches for gyro reversing?

An external Xtal, and the board is perfect!

Really great job, long live KK

Yes Manu... hope this will extend the KK live longer...till the KK 2?? lol

TC...ST Gyro as it is now.. hope to see some alternative in the pipeline ... You know well we are still using the good old KK design and compatibility.

Yes, but all analog ST gyros are EOL/NRND, so you must be getting them somewhere
