Basic Quadcopter Tutorial - Chapter 4 - KK2 Board, ESC Calibration, Throttle Range And Props




What do you think about this video?

Zane Erickson: So you never go into detail about the extra power cable you said you got. Which I assume is what you attached to the bottom of the KK2 board. Where do these two wires go to? You never explain that.

Bauss: what frame is that? recomended prop size?

fragmen52: Could I replace the receiver with a raspberry pi or arduino and Hook them to the kk board

UndetectableSn1per: Is it really necessary to add the sticky tape on the propellers?

Martin Vaughan: Is it possible to recalibrate esc,'s with programming card. I am having problems with only 2 motors starting despite having used the card to programme the exact same settings

freddy0xal: hello bigben34x. I commend you for your dedication to this video. Please I ask you in your web page => http://flitetest.com/articles/Basic_Quadcopter_Tutorial_Talon_V2_KK2_Board_Plush_ESCs?q=basic%20quadcopter let the list of components to buy also please add to this component list "KK2 Board, lipo battery, radio transmitter etc.." I'm desperate :( to buy things exactly. Thank you ;) 

Tomáš Mrva: I think buying turnigy card is hard way... simple and easy buy and use servo tester to set max and min values for regulators

Joe Andrews: When you are programming the ESCs with the programming card you say connect with the "signal on the far left" but you don't say which color that is i.e. what color wire is the signal - it is different on some ESCs...I have a Turnigy 30 amp with purple, red (middle), and yellow cables...which is which? 

João Pinto: On chapter 3 you use a board to test motors and orientations. That board its needed or we can just use this you use in chapter 4 and test with that?

salvatore Perna: could you mount a 5 th rotor in the center and if you could how would you set the kk2 1.5 with 4 quad motors and a fifth in the center?

André Oaklin: When I plug in my ESC into the programming card, it won't turn on :( I have the same setup. Plz help and thanks for the tutorials.

EliteHunting1911: Your videos are great. What was the total cost of this quadcopter?

Edimar Stein: I wonder if you've had trouble with ACC CALIBRATION board is giving error. What could I do to solve

Robin Adams: Big Ben video 4 was fine and very informative. I'm assembling a DJI F550 ARF Kit, and have calibration and etc. to go. You present fine tutorial videos and I appreciate your effort very much. Thank you.

shadowblackmagic: My transmitter is getting no power from the board. It worked before. What can this be being caused by? I've checked the wiring layout and everything like 50 times! 

sk80rb0i: Great Video, I'm assembling a similar quad - same frame as yours with 2 2200mah lipo battery. Can you tell me the PI settings you are using ? thank you

Robert Alexander: Great video, thanks. I'm just starting out and it's very helpful. I would have liked to see how do you tighten the props :-) Never done it before. Danke.

Stephen Smyth: Thank you so much! I have been struggling to get my quadcopter setup for such a long time but this video helped me to get it. Now I just need to balance my props and fully secure everything down and then I can fly it. 

prote101: si

Jacek K: Im waiting for a day when I can build one , get in and fly away;)

ray men: could you use a devo rx with this board?

Jacek K: Which control board do I need to use for fly back home mode? more info guys you can find on oddcopter.com

olivier despatis: I my kk2.0 board does not detect the esc how can I fix that

Jay Haines: I just want to thank you for taking the time to make these videos and share them with us! - I have my first quadcopter due to arrive next week, a ST360 with KK2.0 Flight Controller and now thanks to you have some idea of how to set it up! - Thanks for all your time!

Jacek K: I need cheap platform to build for my go pro 3 . afrter this video instruction it easy and save me a lot and lot of time to get hows everything working. chers mate

Kristan Uccello: KK2 - ESC Calibration and Programming - Basic Quadcopter Tutorial - Chapter 4 - KK2 Board, ESC Calibration, throttle range and props

bigben34x: I am using a Graupner/JR MX12 converted to 2.4Ghz using the DIY set. I made a video about it. Thanks for watching!

Kingofgopro: Hi. Ich hab mir auch einen Quad gebaut. Ich habe das kk2.0 board drauf und als Regler das hk q brain. Das Problem ist wenn ich starten will schaukelt sich der Quad auf und macht einen überschlag. Ich hab schon so viele Setting ausprobiert aber es will einfach nicht funktionieren:(. Vielleicht kannst du mir mal ein paar Tips geben wie du deinen eingestellt hast (p gain/ p Limit ) ??

hanoverview: You did just earn 1 SUB hold down 1 and 4 to calibrate .. how was i supposed to know that !!?!? THX !

Poh Ng: Hi, i got the same setup as you. May i know why did you change the programming card settings for the battery to Ni-xx? Are you using the 3s li-po battery? Thanks

Michael Kopterpilot: Ich finde das Video toll aber warum giebt es das nicht in Deutsch?

86manu86: ... As for the camera mount I don't think I need the camera to tilt so if you have a better way to attach the gopro whithout the mount i listed, please tell me..

Pravit Jarriya: Hexcopter x configuration.

XRMF1: Dude your a life saver! I was really worried about my first setup but this video made it easy! Liked, Subbed and Favorited.

bigben34x: Have you updated your KK2 Board to the newest firmware?

bigben34x: If you get your ESCs calibrated, but not the throttle, you can check throttle range and increase the throttle start up in the KK2 Board menu. I set mine to a value of 20. Works fine. Hope I could help you out. Thanks for watching!

spexiti: cant find the kk2 board, where did you get it. (hobbyking?)

bigben34x: Also I love the hobby I would recommend you to save more money, because I built it on a low budget and if you buy cheap you buy double.

teamscreem: ESC calibration is done by holding 2 buttons down, left and right, while plugging the battery in. I think he says it is easy with a second person or at least having a third hand.

bank601: I'm currently trying to program my ESC's using a Futaba Receiver & Controller (I have a Turnigy Programming Card, only the Very Soft light illuminate). I'm currently getting a constant 2 second delayed beep. Can you offer some advice?

teamscreem: People use the ni-xx setting as it has a lower voltage before the ESC goes into your selected cutoff mode. Thought behind it is I would rather destroy a battery than have my quad tumble out of the air powerless and be damaged. I use soft cutoff mode to give me at least a controlled hard landing if I should exceed the battery limits. Always use a timer and know your battery limitations but sometimes stuff happens. Hope this helps.

mrmurder75: Of*

Muneeb Iqbal: Kindly tell me which radio controller you are using?

Tim Meeuwissen: I love the fact that you're a german and speak flawless english. I live close to your border (netherlands) and I can tell you that its very rare ;-P Furthermore: thanks a lot for the videos. I'm trying to build a QC with an arduino and it's quite the pain in the buttox to find all the right gear and stuff to take in account while building it. So thanks for this one!

bigben34x: Hi pasdj002, sounds like your ESCs are not synced. You got to sync them first. There are some clips on youtube showing you how. Thanks for watching.

bigben34x: Actually this is made on purpose because a ESC in lipo mode will automatically shut down in flight if the voltage drops below a certain level. In Nimh Mode the will just keep running, which is the reason why I am using a voltage alarm

Arne331: Is the "Low Voltage-Cable" to the KK2-Board a special one? Maybe you can post a post like. Is it needed?

rafalocity: Where do you connect power supply for the KK Board? Where do you connect the low voltage detector?

bigben34x: The "low voltage cable / alarm is no special one. However it is needed in order to get the alarm working. You have to solder a wire from the positive of the backside of the kk2 board to the power positve. dhdsracer has a video showing you how. Thanks for watching
