Hk kk v2.1 help

Could someone please tell or preferably show me how to plug a kk board together for a tricopter. I'm having much difficulty . I've tried everything I can think of. Oh and I also can't get the receiver to bind with my dx8 when it's plugged into the kk board.

First time setting up a tricopter. I flashed it with tricopter v2.5 [m168] Minsoo Kim. Is this right?

Thanks!

As far as I know most are using KKTricoptor1.6 for M168. Might get you a little more help. Your rx binding has nothing to do with the board other than board provides power. True spektrum rx or orange rx? Rx will dimmly light led but not bind if channel plugged in backwards. You may also have to setup complete new model again if binding got corrupted.

Its a real ar600-x. When plugging from kk board to receiver, i see people only using two male to male leads? Ive not fiqured this out yet either. Do you have a diagram for this?

Much thanks

This is a picture off ebay. The one male lead is connected to 3 signal pins (where the white wires go) of the board and 3 signal pins on the receiver. The other male lead is connected normally and will supply power.

Good pic. You only need one power and one ground wire. Thats made with one connector with the signal wire going to a channel. On the other connector all 3 wires go to a different channel. Cuts down on wires and weight.

Its really weird, motor one starts , then two and then motor 3 when i push the throttle. No matter what i do, the motors dont start together. Is this normal?

Have you calibrated the throttle range of the esc so they all match? There is a built in utility for that in the kk firmware

;---- ESC Throttle range calibration. This outputs collective input to all motor outputs ---
;---- This mode is entered by turning yaw gain pot to zero and turning on the flight controller. LED will blink 2 times.

Turn on tx and move throttle to max. Turn yaw gain pot to 0. Turn on flight controller. When you hear two beeps move throttle to low and wait for long beep. Disconnect battery and return yaw pot to previous position. You can also calibrate each esc to the throttle channel of rx individually.
