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




What do you think about this video?

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

André Delliot: 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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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

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. 

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

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

chabou7852: ESC calibration: disconnect the ESC connected to the M1 connector , plug in the battery .Then to power the KK just plug in the ESC to M1 it's much easier than a XT60. I haven't experienced but sounds good.

Edimar Stein: hi all right, let me ask you. KK2 my board does not have the function esc calibration. may be something wrong with the borad.

Marcos Fernandes: I wonder if the board kk2 needs to be powered directly from battery or i just need to connect to the ESC? I saw in the video you connected the battery directly and the ESCs too. Would like to know why?

spexiti: you made my build soooooooo easier

Alexander W.: moin :D gute videos, die helfen ungemein. aber den Part der mich interessiert wurde übersprungen, Wie befestige ich die Props? ich hab Standard 10" von hobbyking. mitgeliefert wurde so schwarze Plastik ringe in verschiedenen Größen. Wie befestige ich die jetzt an meinen Motoren? da ist nur ein blanker Metall Stift, wie soll das den halten? vielen dank im voraus. Alex

ian dubria: hi! again i have a video to show you about my kk2.0 board for my quadcopter "youtu.be/QPmQWNkExHY"

mrmurder75: Could not see what u set it to but you should set the battery type to nimh. This prevents the low voltage cut off kicking in. Not what you want on a quad as not all the esc's will detect l. V. C at the same time, resulting in a crash. Instead set battery type to n e thing but lipo and fit a voltage alarm to the quad. The kk2 comes with a voltage buzzer so you could use that or supply your own.

bigben34x: Yes, I can do that! Just give me a week and some good weather!

bigben34x: Thank you so much. I hope you have fun with your QC and arduino. Are you using the APM 2.5?

Aeryk Hurley: I guess there is no harm done in just plugging all ESC's into the kk2.0 board without disconnecting all but one positive wire? Im building an octocopter, and wasnt sure if i needed to disconnect all but one positive wire on the ESC plugs? Or just plug them in?

Pravit Jarriya: I tried to calibrate ESC I turn on radio give full throttle, press 1 and 4 then power the board the motor just go maximum and no confirming sound. Please help, I'm doing hexcopter.

bigben34x: This is a good question, which I like to answer because many have asked me before via a private message. If your ESCs don't have a BEC you will need to install a UBEC an connect this, coming from your power source/lipo to the UBEC to the KK-Board 2.0 On the KK-Board 2.0 only M1 has all pins connected, which means you have to bridge M1 to a free port (on a quadcopter m6 for example) and connect the UBEC to m6

Miguel Aya: Hi, I have a QUADX with HK2824 KV1300 Motors and 30A Turnigy ESC, but I have problems to fly. Its very unstable. I was reading about ESC frecuency and I found that ESCs have to support about 400Hz. I'm not sure if my ESCs supports those frecuencies. In other forum says some people re-program the ESC to find those frecuencies in the quad. Do you know some advice to solve this problem? or the best it's change the ESC.

GEK69NY: Is it necessary to programm ESCs with the card or it's only for Turnigy? Thanks in advance for answer!

Ray Geraerts: ok thank you, keep up the good work.

bigben34x: You can configure it, I have not flashed it. Maybe someone reading this can help you out. THX

Maxikiller77755: kannst du eine neu auflage des Videos in Deutsch machen Bitte ^^ ansonsten tolles video
