BTW, it probably would taken you less time to answer my question than think up a sarcastic response.
I have to agree with you. This thread has become very long and hard to use to find just what you want. I have been using it to put myself to sleep at night. Maybe after I get it all sorted I will try to create a clear and concise setup and operation document. There's a lot to learn here but the info is constantly changing. Some here have different preferences as to the firmware but I stay with the stuff that came out of the box. I have been flying RC for many years (I'm 60 btw) and even being retired I find it all hard to keep up with.

Mounting the KK2 board upside down


I'm a newbie to the multirotor, I'm building a tricopter with the KK2 board. I'm using a spare 450 trex clone I had laying around and decided to converted to a trike. The best place to mount the board is upside down (LCD facing down). It will still be pointing forward. Will that work? I have not done any testing (still waiting on motors) but in the KK2 menu I don't see any options to reverse the gyro or accelerometers...

Yes I did

When you did the ESC calibration, did all the motors spin up at the same time?

Exactly my thoughts, I am only a couple of years behind you, been flying RC for the past 50.

This is what I designed and use in the business. This is the evaluation model, it tests all new software. The one customers see looks the same but folds and fits in a case. I currently have over 500 flight hours on this design.

Flight controller is KK2.0 (of course) with custom mixing.
Motors: NTM 28-26 1200kv.
ESCs: Turnigy 25A.
Battery: 3s2700mAh or 3s3300mAh.
Weight: ~1150g (or 2.5 lbs) without battery.

I have only confirmed that it hovers OK. A full test will be done this weekend (and maybe a video too...).
Very nice build sir.

Nice design. Looks like a drone the military would use.

Cool ! So you got the same frame as the Vtail...I thought I was looking at the Vtail,looks very familiar. What's your settings? ....try upolading a video,I wanna see it in action.
Mine is 3.235 lbs with the lipo (2650Mah)

Very cool and out of this world design ! Can we see it in action ? ...or maybe a link to see it flying ? Thanks

Thank you! On my VTail I use the shorter (VC-450) front arms, but otherwise these frames are similar. The G10 material makes the frame lightweight and strong.

I had to use custom mixing for it to fly properly. For now I have set 'Elevator' to zero and 'Aileron' to 100 for all front channels, but this may change after extensive testing this weekend. I cannot do this test sooner since it's already dark when I come home from work.

BTW: All other settings are at default (Y6).

very loud and easy to set required cut off voltage which it remembers untill you want to change it.
Easy to check on during flight just land or hover next to you and check cell voltages.

I have a simlar one without buzzers to check packs with prior to flight.
Actually, I have one of those somewhere in my attic...I shall dig it out, bought for another project, I'll see if I can find it tomorrow, thanks for letting me know, was just the reminder I needed

Just for the hell of it, here's some pics of my tri, almost ready to go. Just wondering how best to tidy up those ugly wires with tie wraps..

Sooo looking forward to flying trials very soon.
