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?
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.
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.
danny vanhoek: nice video......
Have to look and again.....
Thanks a lot
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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.
Leogetitright55: Great video! Have the kk2 with 1.5 software. How can I correct for the
following problem. AT A HOVER IF I YAW TO THE LEFT THE QUAD WILL LOWER AND
IF I YAW TO THE RIGHT THE QUAD WILL RISE. Currently with experience I just
compensate, but it would be nice if there was a way to reduce this effect.
Any ideas? Thanks, Leo TEXAS USA
Mr.Weezbad: flash your ESCs, make sure the axis are coupled, make sure props are
balanced, make sure ESCs are all calibrated as described in the
instructions or here in one of this guys great videos. My stock turnigy
ESCs did ok. My Blue series had to be flashed to get rid of the jitters.
David Garrett: cheers for this..... and for information on one of your forum posts where
you recommended that the original poster should do a factory reset on his
KK 2.0 board, and attempt to fly the quad again.... I followed your info
and now my quad flies as sweet as a nut.... cheers buddy...
FAIRDINKIUM: Just remembered ( what must be the MOTHER of all stupid questions for a
noob to ask..sorry ).....could someone PLEASE explain to me how the
translation between the trims ( etc ) when done on the actual KK board
takes place ? ( say for example )you set your roll to 20% LEFT on the
actual KK board on the quad...then when you turn on your radio, shouldn't
you have to COMPENSATE for that 20% ? cant get my head around it! both the
quad AND the transmitter have trim controls I'm confused!
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
