Wow. Based on your demanding tone, I'd never be even remotely interested in doing you any favors.

Grow up.

Yeah, the KK2 isn't supposed to be a revolution to the multirotor world, just an evolution of the KK board. Its meant to be affordable, easy to set up, and fly even better than the old KK. For $30 you get a great product.

Kaptain Kuk is improving the firmware on his own time for no profit... to which we should all be greatful and patient. Thank you KK!!!

Hear, hear!

People need to remember that this is a hobby and that the KK2 is not a $1,000+ DJI Wookong. It's a $30 board and it has some nice features. It also flies really well as a replacement for my $20 HK KK v3.0 board.

I'm happy.

Thanks Kaptain!!

Was sitting on the fence & this board (w/ an LCD) pushed me right off the fence head first into the world of multi-rotors. Can't wait to build em, fly em & inevitability crash em.

Actually there is also profit involved(royalties)........but doesn't matter .The board is well worth the money as it is.And the demanding tone is not acceptable in any circumstances.

The royalties he gets is from board sales. Not from creating new firmware... Unless that kk flashing program has been siphoning money from my bank account...

It is kind of a revolution, in as much as one of the most popular 6DOF boards is the Crius Lite running MultiWii which cost another $10-12. The KK2 is probably a better option than the Crius Lite, I have both and the KK2 is easier to use.

very nice and stable..
did you fly in stable mode?

would you share your pids and stable settings?

my KK2 flies great without autostab, but becomes uncontrollable with auto stab on..

This is what makes the board STABLE .Assembly! Might be a language for warlocks, but I think this is still one of the most stable and simple boards out there bar none!

I build one back in the day of hacking Gyro's, and since then have tried about 6 others.....I keep coming back to the KK board, as it flies so great!

Exactly! I have a crius in my Y-6, and I am struggling to make it fly as stable as the KK board.....it works, but the KK board is just SO simple and stable!

I accidently adjusted the contrast such that I cannot read the screen now.
Does anyone know how to do a "master reset" to default values?
I looked thru the manual and didn't see anything.
Alternatively, could someone provide the series of button pushes it would require to get back to the "contrast" screen blind?
