KK2 Autolevel Tuning And Explanation




What do you think about this video?

pticeratops: "P Gain" and "P Limit" are explained. Very nice. But what is "I gain"? What is "I limit"?

Personal Drones: Dhdsracer I have a question. Do you think the gains set in the "normal" PID settings menu (not the auto level menu) will affect at all the craft behavior when in auto level? Or are the normal PID settings only used when in manual mode?

Jim Bass: Informative and well done...thanks. I hit like!

Geoff W.: Fantastic video, great explanations. I watched hobbykings tutorial and they had the pgain at 100, which gave me the high speed oscillations with the overshoots, would take off well but after 3-4 seconds the wobble kicked in, but thanks to you I actually know what im doing now lol.

Desert Jeff: Hey thanks a lot. My dad and I will be building one of these very soon. This was full of juicy bits of KK2. I try to find you on FB. - Jeff 

The284166: Hi my Hcopter tends to yaw towards left.What should be the reason for this and plz give me suggestion to overcome this. Thanks 

danny vanhoek: nice video...... Have to look and again..... Thanks a lot

Jayson Ragasa: Do you know anything about the problem when doing a yaw, left or right, the quadcopter also tilts? even when the quadcopter is hovering? I know when doing yaw, it should yaw flat. Like when doing a yaw to the left, the quad also tilts to the left.

Kevin Meyers: Best information I've seen yet. So clear and concise. Thanks for putting demonstration video with text of settings while explaining what each thing does. Most videos do only one of those leaving out the other two aspects.

irvan36mm: THANK YOU for the best explanation of P Gains & P Limits. I am currently building a Hoverthings Flip FPV w/ a KK2 and hope to get it up & flying this weekend, thanks to your videos!!

CaptainsCollection: Fantastic! I am just getting my quad going and when I can formulate a set of questions I will get back to you. Equipment as Follows: Turnigy Talon 550 frame Turnigy 2836 1100KV motors KK2.0 FC board w/v1.2 Qbrain 4X 25 amp ESC Orange 6 channel receiver LiPo 3S 1300 mah power Spektrum DX4e Transmitter Great job with the videos. Regards, Captain David A. Johnson

Chris Dobie: On behalf of all Noob and intermediate flyers I thank you for making something so many people have made complicated, look simple. After much reading and practice I managed to get my acro mode perfect but my auro level has always been rubbish and I couldn't work out why. You video showed me the right way to tune it. You're a genius

Paul Strong: Great vid i have a kk2 coming and this really helps.

jtaydees: THANK YOU!

Personal Drones: Very clear video, now I understand self level gains in the KK2. Just fixed a bad drift in my micro quad with the accelerometer trimming. Thanks!

SirArghPirate: Very informative. My problem is that the quad tries to flip over when I'm activating self level. If it's in flight it will promptly tilt and go straight backwards and into ground. If I'm activating selv level while on ground it will try to flip backwards when I'm increasing throttle. Adjusting the trim and P gain/limit doesn't seem to affect this at all. I'm using version 1.5. What can be wrong?

Ronald lee: there is no P and I settings for when you are not in auto, the Auto Settings are only for the Copter reverting to flat.

Ronald lee: When in Acrobat mode, when you tilt forward, and let go of your stick, it continues to go forward, in Auto level mode, it reverts back to flat, or at least to your calibrated position

Byeong Rok Kim: Thank you for your good vid. This ACC Trim affect to normal mode(Self Level Off)?

Dick Gibson: Great video! Thanks so much.. I followed your suggestions to the letter and my first flight with exactly was great. I tried to fly my quad with the board that came with it and broke the darn thing in half and broke countless props. KK2 board is the answer. You have save the day. Thanks Thanks Thanks

Ronald lee: it happened to me too, i found that it is because i did not calibrate the ESC... Google search on how to calibrate ESC on KK2.0 :) Don't use the receiver calibration method, only use the KK2.0 Method

DeniskaNYC: Thank you for you videos. Keep up good work.

brainanator: very good video. Thanks.

mrmurder75: This what us noobs needed. A straight forward explanation of how to adjust auto level. Thanks mate:-)

pierre korlaar: thksss shared ;-)

kirky rc flyers: Just got my kk2 for my hexacopter im building.Whats the best way to mount it to my 550 frame ie, hard mounted or double sided foam. Any input would be great thanks.

dhdsracer: Yeah, it's tough to say but you could have bad vibrations affecting everything. Your P is too low and too much I can kill your control too. Just set the PI to stock settings and only decrease the AL P gain down. You won't have a snappy autolevel but it shouldn't shake. Flashed ESC's will help a lot too.

rifted: What is your motor, ESC, prop, set up?

soundkick1980: Thank you! I am building a Turnigy H.A.L. with multistar 45A on Aerodrive SK3 - 3542-800kv with graupner 12x6 prop on 4S and 5S. I Hope it will now work with auto level because it already went wrong for 2 times...

Dodge Ditchburn: Definitely loaded the tricopter model on the KK2? How long before it flips? Checked all ESCs? I built the RC-Explorer tricopter, no balancing on props or motors, basic tail tilt mechanism. Only time it has ever flipped is when I was messing with the auto-level settings,

Will. B: who did the skid outside your house?

Mark Jelic: FINALLY! Finally someone explains what P & I settings ACTUALLY mean and what they do, rather than just telling you what to set them to! Mate, can't thank you enough!! Oh, and also thanks for explaining the ACC trim! My quad does exactly that ALL THE TIME but had no idea how to fix it, since nobody explained what those settings do. Man, you should get paid to write the manual for the KK2 board! Please, if you have time, write up or video a segment on EVERY setting available. Cheers!

stevenh6969: good job !!

dhdsracer: Are you getting vibrations? Have you balanced the props and made sure your tail control is nice and tight? I've had the tails shake so bad it causes flips on Tri's before. I'm generally not a huge fan of them for that reason.

cj2006sd: Thank for the video. Very quick, easy to understand and straight to the point. Definitely appreciate the explanation. I would love to also see one on height dampening for the kk2 as well. Thanks again!

notasixpack: i just solved this for my quad. Not sure if you are using 3.5mm bullet connectors but one of those on my front left motor was bad. NOT the solder.. the bullet itself. It was the male end. If the bullet rotates too easily, replace it. Not sure if this applies to you but hope it helps.

William Maxey: Nice work and explained so that a newbie can understand.

freeebord: I mounted my KK on the F550 frame with vibration insulating foam and velcro, it allows me to have a little 'give' in the vibrations and lets me remove things pretty easy :)

Sean Duffy: Thanks for the quick reply! I'm guessing you don't ship your parts outside the US?

Andy McCheyne: Awesome instructional vid. Thank you. Your kk2 vids have helped me immensely. Cheers bro.

JollySwagman2006: Awesome KK2 self level Explanation Dan, :-)

Fridtjof Schüssler: Thanks for this demonstration! Help me to save Props ! :-)

plugtheheliflyer: Thanks for a easy way of putting it for some.All this board needs now which would be nice if it could be done is GPS.

Mark Lutze: TheBishonator - a guess on this but since a 4s will weigh more then a 3s it will shift the center of mass and change the flight characteristics of the craft.

Reuben Bray: Frustrated Please help.. I had a X525 quad, KK2 1.5, Moongel damp. NTM 2830 750kv,GemFan Carbon 10x4.5 balanced, Dynam 30A ESC, 2650 4S, GoPro. FLYING GREAT. Until a signal failure, sudden death. ONLY damage was to the frame... everything "checks out". Now...have switched over to a TBS Discovery Spider frame "Replica" Same everything. the quad will NOT fly without a huge roll oscillation, and frequent flip and crash. I have changed all my PID's to several extremes and cannot find a balance point

Jeremiah Towe: I upgraded from a kkmulticopter board to a kk 2.0 board and the auto level is amazing. Thanks for explaining the trims, I was trying to trim on my transmitter and was getting no where, flies perfect for FPV now.

jkflorida2013: Nice video. My quad always has a rudder trim problem. Do you have any idea why?

dhdsracer: This is a Talon 2 frame with my RCMC motors and ESC's.

oliverg98: That's all well and good but what dose auto level actually do?

Cyberdactyl: Most excellent explanation. Really helped boost my grasp of auto-level.
