It lists "Singlecopter 1M 4S", does that mean it could be used on say a Trex450?

The gadgets-freaks will not pitch a tent over this one, It is the same, tired old AVR-chip. (Sorry TC ) However, it runs on a 20MHz crystal, so output resolution and jitter is better than before.

Some improvements:

-No confusing potmeter directions.

-No gyro reversing needed since the FW is for a fixed HW setup.

-Self-leveling. It uses acc tilt-angle measurement. Later I will try to add a full AHRS algorithm like the big boys use since it is better. (less delay)

-No PC necessary. All adjustments and multicopter type selecting is done with the LCD and buttons.

-The transmitter setup can be checked before first test. (channels and direction)

-low drift gyros.

-graded low-voltage-alarm, adjustable in 0.1V increments.

-motor numbering and propeller direction is visible on the LCD.

-Custom mixer.


It will become open source when the first update is available. But beware, it is still written in Evil Assembly!!


Here is a buddycode, get it for $19:

Y4 will be added. Also you can enter it yourself in the custom mixer. I will post more details on that later.

OK kapteinkuk, I realise you will open source it eventually but can you release the circuit to save me the effort reversing it? Pretty please?
What about the LCD? Can you point to any datasheets about driving it?
Any help is much appreciated.
I will send you a PM.

And a ?

What are the flight characteristics with the autolevel? Do you still have control when it is on, or does it take control like an autopilot and level the multi until you turn it off?
Autolevel makes it very docile. But there is settings to adjust it.

Camera gimbal will come.

The Battery voltage input is the unpopulated hole to the left of the yellow component.

It is available for planes too, but that combination is not tested. I will do it when I get more KK2's

Are the lines drawn between the motors not quite perfect in the picture, or is that just bad image scaling?
I will try to add CPPM mode. Round-off error

Why not ?

There are some configurable mixing possible, so maybe the 120S or 90S can be configured with the 1S

Looking forward to get this KK2 ... and looking to see the source code open up

Tchuss

e_lm_70

ps: The new chip in the KK2 has 2 serial port ... are these again unusable like it was with the original KK ? Looking at the HK photos, I even don't see the pin exposed for some custom changes ... at least old KK from HK was able to allow it ...

Haha one of those serial ports could be connected to a gps
