Make sure motors are...

1 2
4 3

Make sure your props spin...

cw ccw
ccw cw

White wires on the board should all be pointed to the center with your black wires all to the edge of the board. Hope that helps.

1- reduce stick scaling to 25 on pitch and roll.

2- with rx bound, go into "receiver test" then move the sticks. The LCD will display which stick movement you are applying and the direction. Do not try to lift off until each stick movement is shown as correct.

3- escs are labeled. 1- cw 2- ccw 3- cw 4- ccw propeller.

OK. I'm at my computer for another 30 minutes or so if you need help.

Don't touch the ESC connection to the board. You saw it fly. All I did is remove my RX and shipped it to you, so it's still all good. Motor rotation is already checked and no need to look at that, either. The problem lies with one of the following three things:

1- Propellers configuration
2- RX connection to the KK2
3- Radio settings

You need to do a receiver test. With the quad bound to the radio, under "receiver test" the KK2 will tell you which stick you are moving and in which direction. For example, if you're moving the ailerons stick and the LCD tells you that you are moving the elevator, this means you have Aile and Elev channel mixed up. Also, if you move the ailerons left, and the LCD tells you that you are moving the ailerons right, this means you have to reverse the channel in your radio.

Also, if the board won't arm, it could be that the KK2 is not reading 0% throttle so you need to just lower the throttle value using the throttle trim. Set it to negative 1% and it should be enough.

If it flips on you after all the receiver test looks OK, you most likely have the wrong propeller configuration.

Oh, and as mentioned in the video, I do not program "auto level" because I don't use it and because it simply doesn't work well on the KK2. So make sure that when the board is in safe mode that you read "auto level: off" on the LCD display.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Chris

I'm flying using 9X + 9X RX and it's fine (except very poor range !)

Try this procedure and see if that helps for "46% throttle":

Also try to find somebody to flash to radio to ER9X or order smarie parts board.

ER9X makes using 9X way way way eaiser and nicer for beginners !
