I am sure googling "buddy code hobbyking" would have sorted you out, but it's a reward system that Hobbyking does occasionally.
After you order something, look back at your order and sometimes you'll see some blue "buddy" icons to the right of the items. Clicking on them reveals buddy codes.
You then give these codes to others and they get a discount and you get a reward. The first batch of KK2.0 boards had a HUGE buddy code discount...

Hi T,
It is a way to get a group buy discount from HK. For the KK2 it reduced the price from ~$30 to ~$19
HK Buddy codes 101
Cheers,
Jim

I ordered 10
I'll be selling them for $69.99 each shipped.

lol..just kidding. I got one, but I'm waiting for the first guy to advertise them in the classifieds at a nice fat markup. He will be excoriated!!

After watching the vids that have been released, this board looks great for a fun aerobatic ship, and maybe even a good AP controller, time will tell.

It would seem, that this board, if it really turns out to be as good as it appears, will kill off all those assemble yourself wii kits out there. The ones where the end user has no plans to incorporate a GPS.

Well some how I shorted my FreeFlight 1.31 board yesterday.. I have been trying to get this new KK2.0 board. I have missed out the last two times it was in stock. Does anyone have a spare on the way they would be willing sell? I would evening be willing to pay the 29.99 price, even if you got it for the Buddycode price!

Thanks

This board has created a real frenzy of excitement before anyone has seen it work.
So i joined in the "had to have it" crowd.
I am now waiting for my board to arrive..looking for info. and found this vid. in another thread.

it sure has an insane flip rate for those who are inclined to fly that way on purpose.

can't wait to see one in the hands of a garbage pilot, like myself. that's where we really learn if it's any good or not. a skilled pilot can fly dog poo.

Hallstudio actually posted that video (his own) in this thread back at post 199, you must have missed it, he was pushing the limits on the Stick Scaling to see how far it would go before he broke something.

it runs on a 20MHz crystal, so output resolution and jitter is better than before.
the price is hot.

gratulation kapteinkuk


where can I find the schematic?
