As far as I know that's always looking DOWN on your model from top, so flight control board top = where you're looking to.

Propellers are either clockwise (CW) or counter-clockwise (CCW or pusher) - and thats when looking down on them from above.

So funnily enough, we use same basis for copter propellor rotation...

I have only a short question about the motor direction of rotation ( of Motors / Propellors ) which is written in your Readme.

Is the direction when you are looking from the motor to the propellor or if you look down at your multicopter from above.

In the internet there are different meanings of direction of rotation...

regards

dieter
Normally it is view from top down

not sure if this will work. I assume you have the TX and RX line with Ground. you have to know which com port it is in.

try with your FTDI RX pin to TX of KK Plus, TX to RX and ground to ground. page 1 do have the 10 pin layout.

with the known com port, you also can follow the info at pg 1 to do step by step to get to the flashing.

Thanks for the reply, I will try that.. just one more question please.. I see the 5.5e board doesn't have a BootLoader switch like the one in the vid .. is there another way to "switch" it to programming mode, or is it automatically gonna sense the serial cable?

Basically the switch is to cut off the connection of Ail RX line. We have the switch there so if user has the RX connected, you dont need to unplug the cable and just use the switch to disconnect the connection.

we removed it as some user may forgot to switch on and end up with no Ail control. Something with good intend but not that well receive.

for 5.5e, if you have RX cable inserted, just need to remove the Ail cable before you use the flashtool.

If I take my piggyback board and plug the other LCD into it, it doesn't light up.
Help?
