Controlled by an Atmel Mega168PA 8-Bit RISC based micro controller and utilizing a single 3-axis MEMS gyro the Hobbyking i86 Multi-Rotor Control Board is capable of 8 Multi-rotor craft types and 2 flight modes without the need to flash the micro controller. The simple dip switch systems allows for quick and easy selection of your desired Multi-rotor configuration and flight mode.
Light weight and compact the i86 can fit in the smallest of craft and includes a small piece of double sided tape to install.
The Hobbyking i86 Multi-Rotor Control Board supports: Aero (fixed wing) Dual copter Tri copter Quad copter X Quad copter + Hex copter H6 copter Y6 copter All of the above modes can be set in "Normal" mode or "Sports" mode (default normal)

When I disarm this board via Transmitter gestures it gives a short full throttle pulse to the Motors that Quadcopter make a rocket Launch (jumps uncontrolled 3-4 m in the air before it crashs down to earth)
This is absolutly dangerous for people and environment.
HK please add a warning or a note in your article text, that this Controller is unsafe with ESCs flashed with SimonK. This will safe health and environment
I use i86 controller with 6Amp 2S-3S BULL TEC Multicopter Brushless ESC flashed with SimonK . The i86 Setup is Quad X4 on normal mode.
Can i86 Firmware be updated ? It is mandatory to do this.
What mode should I set my Turnigy 9X transmitter to, Aero or Helicopter?
I am struggling to acheive a stable flight with it set on one of the four helicopter modes.
M1 seems to be struggling despite manual ESC calibration and and then the ESC calibration after.
Thanks in advance.
Hi all, Hey without a gimbal and hardmounted to the frame of a long arm tricopter, this board is capable of getting some pretty stable shots. Can you imagine what could be possible with just a simple servo gimbal like the actioncam gimbal?
Piers, I've had much better success by doing the ESC throttle range calibration first, and ensuring I put the Roll pot back to 50%, then do the stick centering. When doing the stick centering, the drawing is labeled wrong but the pot is in the correct position. You should turn the Pitch pot to zero. After this is done and reset to 50%, you should be able to arm the board by pulling the elevator stick down and hold for a second or so. These little boards are pretty stable for just being a gyro board with no auto level function. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
A warning to those using SimonK's firmware on their ESCs. When you disarm this board it gives a short full throttle pulse. Simons firmware is sensitive enough to detect this and as a result disarming is very unsafe. I found a thread on this issue and it seems that other ESCs work fine.
Three stars because Simons firmware is popular and this should have been tested.
I was using Hobbyking F-20A ESCs flashed with SimonK firmware version tgy_2012-06-10_d8f53c2. The i86 was setup as a Quad X 4 copter on normal mode.
Credit me if this saves your face.

Was up in the air in less than 1 hour. super easy to get everything together. Make sure you get the male to male servo leads so you can connect your RX. Credit if you find helpful. Thanks!!

I think this control board has very dangerous bug. Just sometimes happend symptom that all rotor was rotate full rpm after disarmed action after landed. So, my 3rd quadcopter has been literally distroyed.. It's really danderously.. Anybody has same symptom?

I was used in the X4-copter. The control board was not very stable. Is regrettable. I want to change the firmware.
