Help!
Help with a kk2.0 quadcopter build (check my shoplist thread)

So, I found out i have rushed things and ordered premeturely as always, so i cancelled the order (it wasnt sent yet luckyli) and am now starting again, and taking it a tad more easy.

The quad will be made for fun flight, and later on, i will try out some FPV flying. I have ordered parts so i can build it to a hex later on, if i want to try that out.

What i would like to end out with, is a quad/hex that has a nice battery time (15 min, 20 would be awsome, but hard to do as far as i can read), a long range (1-1.5 KM ? Doable?)

The shoppinglist:

Total: 440$ + shipping, taxes and stuff.
Total budget: 550$, and this will most likely be broken when taxes and shipping gets in the hat, but hey, starting out is expensive.

I would be greatly thankfull if you could see your time to go it trough and see if i have made any beginner errors.

Sorry for bumping, but I am really looking forward to ordering this so I can get started:P

I got 3 questions:

What telemetry would be fun to get,

Can i get a good GPS module to make a "return to home" function on the parts i have choosen.

Is there a good battery for the TX thats in stock you would reccomend?

Edit:

Thinking about these two parts:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...nsor_Hub_.html

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...PS_Module.html

But will that make the vessel able to get a usable return to home function?

Edit2

Oh well, think i need to get this one too, to get altitude too... And it is in backorder.

Any other GPS systems you can reccomend, or do they all come together with the flight controller? (thinking of the nasa)

Sorry for bumping again, but I would really like some feedback on this.

If none comes, i will just think everything is fine and dandy, and order the parts in a few hours

your motors you have in the list are way to small you need something bigger a 2212 is a good size for the x525 kit

this one would also work ok http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ess_Motor.html

Here is a full kit and you would get it a lot faster http://rctimer.com/index.php?gOo=goo...7&productname=

Hmm, in another thread, people where saying they would be fine.

Any other oppinions on the motors? from what i can read they generate 3600G of thrust, and the total weight of the vessel will be 2200 grams.

Are they really to small?

Edit:

And bying a kit will learn me nothing That is why i prefer to build it from scratch.

Motors should be good. I would get 11 + 10 inch props instead of 11 + 8. Don't get low voltage alarm, KK2 has it built in. Get THIS programming card, the Turnigy is wrong. Get THIS and THIS so you can flash your ESCs.

Looks like you want a few features that IMHO only The naza fc & gps can do RIGHT!! With a budget of $550 you can get Will from " the quad man" to build you a 450 with naza and for $650 naza fc and naza gps set up perfect . Send your 9x to him and when you get the quad it will be RTF and it will be perfect !!!! I'm not sure if he even makes any money off that if he does it can't be much . I'm into sport flying and I'll be Lucy enough to get a Armatten 409 and it's just super clean build and fast and extremely strong almost unbreakableName: ImageUploadedByTapatalk1350136422.141275.jpg

Description: and for $185 shipped built bnf can't go wrong . Lots of R&D and that's the end result . But for what it looks like you want with your budget I'd go see the quad man . There are many great builders here and all build great quad etc but I've noticed it's got everything to do with what you're trying to achieve with your quad and that's how I base my decisions on who or what I get built thanks and good luck

how can he do that when the naza alone costs like 300€ ?

Anyway, I find half of the fun in researching what components i should get, and how to put them proberly together. Getting a kit another person made is in my mind "boring". I fully understand the people that does it, but I just dont learn anything else than flying a premade quad by that

I already ordered the parts, so the ESC programming card will have to do, or i will have to order another one. Why does it not work?

If you read the page it has in bold underlined text "For use with Turnigy Plush ESCs". Have a try anyway and if it doesn't work you can always program your ESCs with your radio but it ain't fun

The KK2 board has a built in Voltage alarm so you don't need another one, don't forget extra wire,heat shrink and battery straps and the blue velcro from HK is very strong and will hold your batteries in place.
