Oh dear, I'm afraid that just isn't a pardonable offense, except for the hundred times I have done it!

Anybody know the best way to set up the kk on a f450 flamewheel? So holes have to be drilled?

When I drilled holes for my KK2 board into my 450mm DJI clone frame, I had to drill through a portion of the arms because 45mm was too wide.

They might have switched to 44mm to better fit 450mm frame centerplates.

Why just doesn´t use double side foam tape (example from HK) ??

I use it on all my quads and it works great!

And my question, why does not people use the foam box that the KK board arrived in??

Have just made a 6pin usb asp adapter and updated the firmware to V1.5.

Will test tomorrow and se what happens.

How do you sensor calibration you boards? Could anyone upload a picture? Because I don´t really know how to do it..

I use the foam box it came in but havent flown it much. 3M auto trim tape doesnt stick good to the foam so I used quick grip and just glued it on to the CF plate.

I have a couple questions
It seems to me when doing acc calibration that one would want the props level and not really care about the board. After all, the props are what are going to keep the bird level. Am I wrong in my thinking? I spent a great deal of time shimming the frame with a 2' level across motor shafts each way and got it right on the money before calibrating. Seems to auto level well so far but my testing is limited. Seems that as long as the board doesn't move and is fairly level to start with it should be ok. I don't see the need to perfectly level the board with the props.

Also, M1 is the esc that powers the KK2, check.
My 3 other plush esc's (quadcopter) each have a 3A linear BEC. Does this mean that the rest of the motor outputs share 9A of available output from the other 3 esc's or is this not how it works? Just curious.

1) Make sure yaw is trimmed
2) ESC calibration
3) Props and motors are not tipped
4) Stiffer frame

A small amount of yawing can be normal for the frame, a lot is usually indicative of something activly wrong in the setup.

Correct, the important thing is that the props should be "level"

Ive seen some posts in the scratchbuilt section where people have tilted their motors on purpose for better stability/handling so really it must be that it should be level in relation to the frame, no!?
