Anyone flying a HK KK2 board should go have a look at what Hefnycopter is doing with the software for this FC.
Even has a windows based ground station that it will hook up with.

Been itching to try FPV. So, I got some basic stuff to give it a go.

I was a bit worried about battery life and signal range. It worked out O.K though.

I reckon some bigger lipos and I'm good to go.
