We would first need to know what kind of transmitter. I use a DX7 Spektrum. I had to set up a mix and assign a switch.

...and do you have the AUX input on the KK2.0 board hooked up to your receiver?

If you did not change anything then you have not set it up. Go read your transmitter manual and work out how to assign an AUX channel to one of your switches.

If it a DSM2 (Spektrum) transmitter...

Chan 5 is the "gear" channel and is mapped to the gear switch on the transmitter. (my setup) I plugged channel 5 into the aux input on the KK2 and it switches on and off the Self Level. (Look on SAFE screen and yo can cycle it on and off)

Chan 6 is for FLAPS

Chan 7 is AUX 2. (I set up a mix to the "Aux2" switch and use it for lights and accessories. (my setup for saucer)

There are a few 6 channel receivers out there that actually use chan 6 for an Aux2 chan. I have a couple off each. Look at the Monitor (on a DX7) to see the switch values.

There's your problem. You have Autolevel turned on via your radio permanently.
Do you have something plugged into the AUX input? If so, just work out which channel it is and switch it OFF

I'm guessing the AUX channel is wired differently on your other models.

Anybody got the number for 911?

I had the idea to put half balls on the bottom for landing gear (and to protect the lights). I think it looks good. The KK2 board for this one was in New York City yesterday. I hope to get it tomorrow or Thursday. Going to be a good test bed.

Ok fellas. I have searched and read post 1 but can't resolve my problem. I will try to explain as best I can.
Kk 2, tricopter settings, no yaw control.
Rudder servo is plugged into m4 out put, but no go. Servo has been tested and I know it's good. Spare test servo has no Reaction as well.
?
Using 9c with DL system for what it's worth.

Ok somebody that really knows chime in here if I'm wrong but....

Isn't there a setting on the KK2 board to tell the board if it's controlling a servo or an ESC? I think so. I just can't remember where it is. And maybe there are even two different kinds of servos.

Oh, Yea, What was I saying?

Thanks for the quick response sudsy! The setting in the mixer editor is set to servo for m4. Running a hs85mg.

Honestly I have never tried to drive a servo with this board. Maybe look at the stick scaling.

Now I might be acting real stupid here but........

Is it possible that the servo is connected to the rudder channel of the receiver? (y adapter)
I have been unable to convince myself that it wouldn't work but I just can't!!!!!

Have you got power going to M2-3? The power going into the M1 output (usually from the ESC BEC) isn't shared onto M2-8 outputs (so servo noise can't mess up the FC).

The servo won't move unless the fc is armed and there's some motor power (I *think*, too).

Otherwise, start in receiver test and make sure that all the sticks are moving the right inputs in the right directions.

HTH.

OK so he would have had to cut the red wires on the ESCs for motors 2 and 3?

If not that doesn't explain it.
