I find that XT60 connectors are much safer and easier to connect/disconnect than Deans. I use both connector types and I've seen no sparks with the XT60s whereas the Deans will have sparks flying almost every time.

What problems are you seeing? Sparks are not giving my KK2.0 any problems.

Finally solved the mystery of the intermittent board! I checked all the soldering with a mag glass, but all is sound, so looked over the rest of the tri, and found the UBEC cable had frayed (had got trapped under one of the folding arms)
Hadn't noticed this, but it had taken the insulator right off!
Spliced more wire in to repair, thankfully it's all working again..

Made up another male/male lead, plugged one end on the board in the 5th port, after rudder, and the other end into AUX on my RX.
Anyone know how to activate the switch to work with A/L on a DX-7?

Went into the LCD menu, changed the A/L setting from 'Stick' to 'Aux'..Is there anything else I shoul;d do that I may have missed?

Would I be better off re flashing with the scolton FW as it seems to support A/L better than stock?

Battery is firmly mounted with HD velcro and strapping harnesses, and CG is spot on.


Looking to get outside with it on Monday, if the weather co-operates.

Thanks again guys

Matt

Almost, but not quite.

"hold" means it wont ever change. What you have, is just a well tuned board and well built Hex.

just crashed a quad so i'm building a Y6.

how you guys are mounting props on a Y6 (with KK2 of course). ?

3 top motors are spinning CW (top view) so i put pusher props with writing up.

3 bottom motors are spinning CCW (top view) so i should put normal props. Should the writing to be facing up (sky) or facing down (to the ground)?

Had a failure this morning, pretty sure it was not the FC, but not positive. About 6 feet off the ground, hovering, it just went crazy and motors 1 and 4 stopped dead. The unit did two complete flips before smacking the ground, thankfully right side up. Ended up with prop embedded in one of my ESCs. At that point the FC would not turn on, but after a rebuild of affected parts ( no swaps, just disconnect, fix, connect ) everything works.

Flew it for an hour this afternoon, so I'm pretty sure the problem is resolved.
