Good luck on your new build!
I have tried it with the hunter vtail 500 frame. And it does roll some under hard yawing....for video under light roll it is smooth and level....quick yawing tends to make on of the fronts dip..this can be countered some with mixer adjustments but i found that you either get good level slow yawing or good level fast yawing... not both.. the vtail was a fun project that gave good hover and straight flying ability but the axis' of rotation felt odd to me while doing fast or aggressive manuevers...tri flyers may like it better... i lost a good bit of efficiency and battery life but that is expected...i gained a small amount of yaw ability but it wasnt worth it imho...my quad has 1047 props so i already hav good yaw ability.. an awesome looking frame and quad.. just wasn't what i was expecting once in a large field flying it.. it took some mixer adjustments after selecting vtail and the tail motors are opposite inojts from what the displays says...at least in my case it was..

Anybody else notice that those new Turnigy ESCs we were all talking about yesterday have vanished completely from the HK website? What's with that?

My other multi is using an earlier KK board not the KK2 and it flies fine with no yaw issues. I also have a Blade MQX that I fly for fun with the same TX and there are no issues with rudder on this either.
Update: I was wrong. Seems as though the pots on the Yaw/Pitch are stuffed. Just got off the phone with the warranty guys here in Australia and I need to send it back.
Thanks for all your help so far. Looks like I have to wait for a while now before I can get this board set up.

Anyway they are still on the Facebook page but all comments have been hidden and you can't add comments.
Sounds like some kind of hilarious stuff-up

Maybe because TC had a hard discussion with HK Admin? He stated the multistar ESC are crap and SBEC or any BEC in multicopter ESC is much more crap.

I followed these discussion yesterday, it was very amusing.

Nope, they have returned with all of TC and some of SimonK's comments removed.
Basically all the posts telling them why they have no idea way they are doing.
Hilarious considering that if they actually listened to these experts, they would have a killer product.
