I've posted two videos below. The first is a general overview of both the FC and the ESC from FETTEC. The reason I'm happy to post this here is because FETTEC is essentially keeping KISS alive - this is a good thing. The second video is my maiden flight with it - there's a LOT that I need to do to lock it in the way I expect it to be, BUT, it was just like flying my other KISS quads. I'm excited, and I hope you are too!

Here's the review of both the flight controller and the new ESC:

Here's the video from the Maiden:

I really dig my FETtec stack. The only thing I don't like is the super stiff cable between the ESC and FC. Ill swap it out at some point. The switch to KISS has been my best move yet. BF 4.1 with RPM filtering is the best BF has ever been but KISS is on another level with control and simplicity. All I want now is a whoop style board for my Toothpick. I hope a US dealer becomes a distributer for KISS and FETtec HW. I like I said I love the stack and the price doesn't bother me but the shipping was very high and that turns a lot of people off.

New Kiss Build But Motors won't Get Powered or Play Startup Tones


So I am building my first kiss quad and everything works fine including the camera, VTX, Receiver, osd, FC, and the ESC supplies power to everything and has solid blue lights on it but none of the motors will spin when armed and none of them beep or make any startup tones when I plug in the battery. also, I can connect to my remote get RSSI and control the ppm/aux outputs seen in the GUI. I have made arming modes in kiss GUI that say armed on my osd, I tried reflashing ESC and FC to the newest. I set to all dshot and ESC modes. I set min command up from 1070 to 1200 and nothing. any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

FC? Firmware?
ESC? Firmware?
ESC protocol?
ESC connection?
Screenshot of the gui?

^^^ post this. Then you might get some help.

Make sure you set your Min Command and Min Throttle correctly.
Try setting MinCommand=1000, and MinThrottle=1070, and see what happens when you arm. (remove your props first!)

Drown FC


Hello,

I am trying to revive a V2 FC that had a dive in salty water last summer.
Could I ask what is the inductor on the top of the board and what is the small capacitor next to the regulator at the bottom?
I will probably need to change the regulator at the bottom as well so that would also be good to know.
Thanks in advance!

Thank you very much Alex!!
I impatiently replaced the inductor with a 100uH that I had around and the FC seems to be working ok.
The two capacitors next to the main inductor are in a very bad shape and are winning high pitch noise.
Do you mind if I ask the values of those as well?
I would guess 10uF and 0.1uF..

I really appreciate your help, the board will be donated to a friend who managed total distraction..

Thanks,
Yiannis
