I remember that was given.

from Hardware, the 5.5e has the following changes as in page one:
NEW 5.5e now in production line. All the back order will be shipped with the new 5.5e. The key changes:
- LVA with LED driver
- Added the dedicated 3pin for LCD module instead of the need to split the cable
- Removed the switch for bootloader flash. Now user need to remove the Ail RX cable before any reflash of firmware using the KK Plus Flashtool

with this, the 1.5e code enable a menu to set the LVA to use as LED or as Buzzer.

and 5.5e LED output is 12V

and for the flash tool, please dont power up the KK Plus before you open the port. (step by step as in page 1)

you dont need radio signal. and if you are using 5.5e, please remove the Ail Cable from the KK Plus.

Hope this helps
I didnt power it before opening the port, only tried with the usb plugged in... kk disconnected.

I tried plugging in servos and powering the board up, the servos get a quick response but dont do anything, the light just continues to flash..

Well, I have a stupid question, should the white arrow on the board point to left front engine or "between" the two front engines?

Might answer alot since It didnt run nice at all since changing from kk board to kk+, ohh its quad-x mode for me.

The arrow should allways point to the front. If you are flying xcopter then between the two motors

Haha ok, didnt think of that at all, since the kk board was removed I just slapped it on.. daaaaaaaaaaaaaa.. .


EDIT:
Isnt that something for the info? how to mount the board? since it differs from the kk board depending on fw,
Isnt this board aimed to be somewhat compatible with the original?, if not, put some nicer gyros on the board, couldnt hurt.

The KK Plus is following the KK design, that is why you can use the standard KK firmware. The arrow is always point to front.

Typically, two way you can program/flash the KK Plus:

1)
If you have the serial link and KK Plus, you can use the KK Plus flashtool. No need to have AVR programmer.

2)
You also can flash the KK Plus using the AVR programmer if you prefer.

I have some problem with number 1 and 3 motors. No 2 and 4 spins as they should through the whole throttle range. No 1 and 3 only spins at allmost full throttle. I have calibrated the throttle range on all motors. Anyone have a clue what's wrong?n I like to add that it's no problem with motors, wires or ESC. I can swap motors and it's still port no 1 and 3.

regards

Lasse

EDit: I have one fully working KK card (the old one KK plus 5.5d, not flashed) one older flashed with latest firmware and one new 5.5e. All with Quad X. The old one work perfectly on my quad. All motors spin through the whole throttle range. The old flashed card does not. Motor port 1 and 3 does not spin until full throttle. The newest card 5.5e show the same as the old flashed card, motor port 1 and 3 does not spin until full throttle. If I did not have a fully working card, I would not have a clue what was wrong.

I have started to look for alternative cards that does not give so much problem. Hopefully there are such a card somewhere. If anyone knows a good alternative card, please let me know....

I have flashed the 5.5e card and manage to get it to work, but the old card does not. Flashing seems to work perfectly without a problem, but then I'm not sure if there is some hardware problem inside the old card. That has been a troubled card since I've got it, so it'll probably end up in the waste bin....

Still have two cards left to play with and another card coming (not KK plus) for testing to fill the gap on my third quad.
