Good to know, thanks. Given the number of "inelegant ground encounters" I've had learning with my v929 I think robustness is an important selection criteria.

Are you pushing the props on this one, or using adapters of some sort?

cheers,

I'd start by verifying that the plug, from the receiver to the KK2.0, is plugged in correctly, make sure there not 180 degrees backwards.

the stock FW that came with the 2.0 was never published. the 2.0 now comes with 1.2 as stock firmware
Is this your first quadcopter? post some pic's of how you have your plugs and wires hooked up.

Try flashing 1.2 on your KK2 board again.

when you say it stopped working, does the board power up at all?
