HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board V3.0 (Atmega328 PA)

HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board V3.0 (Atmega328 PA)
HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board V3.0 (Atmega328 PA)

Based on the popular and already well supported KK Control board, the Hobbyking Multi-Rotor control board is bringing Multi-Rotor madness to the masses with its breakthroughs in quality and price!

The HobbyKing Multi-Rotor control board uses Japanese Murata piezo gyros that are less sensitive to vibration than SMD type gyros and also features state of the art SMT manufacturing to ensure quality. This board also uses a user programmable Atmega328PA IC.

Specs.
Size: 50.5mm x 50.5mm x 23.5mm
Weight: 14.5 gram
IC: Atmega328 PA
Gyro: Murata Piezo
Input Voltage: 3.3-5.5V
Signal from Receiver: 1520us (4 channels)
Signal to ESC: 1520us


Whats is a Multi-Rotor Control board you ask?

The HobbyKing Multi-Rotor controller is a flight control board for multi-rotor Aircraft (Tricopters, Quadcopters, Hexcopters). Its purpose is to stabilise the aircraft during flight. To do this it takes the signal from the three on board gyros (roll, pitch and yaw) then passes the signal to the Atmega328PA IC. The Atmega328PA IC unit then processes these signals according the users installed software and passes control signals to the installed Electronic Speed Controllers (ESCs). These signals instruct the ESCs to make fine adjustments to the motors rotational speed which in turn stabilises your multi-rotor craft.

The HobbyKing Multi-Rotor control board also uses signals from your radio systems receiver (Rx) and passes these signals to the Atmega328PA IC via the ail, ele, thr and rud inputs. Once this information has been processed the IC will send varying signals to the ESCs which in turn adjust the rotational speed of each motor to induce controlled flight (up, down, backwards, forwards, left, right, yaw).

Note: A user manual is available under the files tab.

Is there any differences between this flying board and KK v5.5 (black edition?)? Thanks

An update to my message below. I purchased a HobbyKing Quadcopter controller a year or so ago but have only just got around to setting it up on a quadcopter. The manual I downloaded at the time says it has a Atmega48PA IC whereas this controller is stated to have a Atmega32PA IC however I am assuming they are basically the same. After connecting it up with the 4 channels (1,2,3 & 4) of the receiver, a QBrain ESC and the motors I cannot get the controller to work at all. I know the QBrain and all motors are working OK because I have c***brated them with the transmitter and receiver using the Brain hub. I have obviously checked the plugs are all in the right way. When I power up the system the controller LED flashes briefly and the receiver is working and so the battery is clearly going through the controller However none of the motors start when any of the transmitter controls are moved. The controller just seems dead. I assume that I don’*t need to flash the controller before I use it the first time, hasn’*t it already got basic software loaded? Is there something else I need to do to start up the controller or should I flash it with updated software? If so where do I find this? I would be very grateful for any suggestions of how to get this working. It seems silly to have to buy another to get started.

Answering my own question, the elevator/rudder stick needs to be moved to the bottom right corner of the transmitter to turn on the controller. Perhaps some basic instructions for people new to these controllers could/should be included with them in the box.

Awesome! Hope you can post a video if your quad in flight.

Yep,you must arm the controller first. For me also takes some time to learn that not only I need to push stick left (or right), but also to hold it that position for 5s or more... �*�*

Hi Mike, Did you arm the board by doing a (Mode 2) left stick down and to the right? If so and it doesn't arm, trim your throttle down all the way, and try again. If it arms, trim the throttle back up until it doesn't arm, then back down two or three clicks. Hope this helps and Happy flying!

Does anyone know how to flash this controller successfully with the command line avrdude tool? I don't have Windows and would like to know how to do this via command line. I've written the quadcopter X-layout firmware from the 'files'-tab (EU warehouse) to the controller and verfied the transfer, but it still behaves as having the -layout. As long as the quad is stationary, the controls are correctly forwarded to the four rotors, but when the quad is exited by hand, the wrong motors spin up/down to compensate. Should I activate the controller in the flash memory somehow? The 'extended fuse' seems to have a different value (07) from that in the manual (FF) http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uploads/116
867307X7478X23.pdf, but
I'm hesitant to change this fuse as it may also break the controller...

Hi Martijn, It is much easier to have you look up how to flash it on YouTube than to try and explain it here. Look up "HK quadcopter control board V2" and there is a guy flashing a V2 board (same way you will flash this one). If you don't have windows, the tool can be downloaded for Linux or Mac as well. Hope this helps and Happy flying!

Thanks for the reply, but in the mean time i've figured it out already myself. I found out that the kkMulticopter flash tool is now opensource www.link and I decided to go with that. Using the tool, my quad still gave the same response to manual excitations which was really frustrating, but also made me think about other causes than the firmware. It was only then, that I found out that for a X-configuration or -configuration, the board still has to be mounted with the arrow in the flight direction. I assumed that the orientation of the board should always be orientated such that the corners point to the props because my frame does not really support another orientation, but after mounting the board 45 deg rotated anyway it works now and I can fly my quad.

After the onset of the KK2 series of boards, I have only used these boards for fixed winged aircraft to stabilize them in wind, correcting unwanted movement and they do quite well in that capacity.

Ron is it worth picking up one or two while that are on sale??? (Thanks for the video)

Oh my! Yes it is. Glad you pointed that out. I'm going to order a few because my daughter will soon be in Phisics and this would be a great an fun project for her. I don't believe I would know as much about control boards if I had not started on one of these. Thanks again for tipping me off.

:Hello from India:
This comes with an Atmega 328 so more memory (although almost all firmwares can be installed in 168).I made successful quad for my project using the v2.1 .now making one currently using this one .If anyone from india needs help mail me at biki.nitc.sahu@gmail.com

Thanks.

I received mine. It is same like version 2.1. Only Difference is Bigger flash memory.

So far I don't found any KK firmware which demand Atmega328 PA. So Older Board is still useable and performing same.

3 Stars for quality of construction. Some of the solder joints are untidy (but seem electrically sound). More worrying was the large amount of solder flux left over on the bottom side. Little bit of canned flux remover did the trick but it's something to be wary of.

The vulnerability of the yaw gyro to damage worries me slightly. Time will tell wether it stands up to use or gets knocked around.
