It's a JST plug where you can hook up LEDs and other accessories to your multicopter. It eliminates the need for a wiring harness!

For what is the tiny black plug on top of the board? Is it for the power for the control board? If yes, which cables are the best to use?

It's a JST 12 volt accessory plug. You can use it to power LED lights or supply 12 volts to anywhere you like. If you had a Y adapter you could send one end to a KK board to monitor battery voltage and the other end to LEDs or whatever you choose:). The control board receives its power from the ESC's connected to the motors. Look , Hardware & Accessories>Wires&Plugs>Battery and you will find these JST plugs and plugs with wires to use for this.

I'm using the 30amp afro simon k escs with the NTM Prop Drive 28-26 1000KV / 235W which have a max current draw of 15amps. Should i use a 20 amp ESC instead? Would a 20 amp ESC be enough for those motors?

What kind of voltage does the auxiliary JXT connector provide?

unfortunately the aux out only supplies the bat. input voltage, no drop.

You can use this board if your motors do not use more than 20A EACH for a longer time period. As you have 4 motors you can use it safely with 80A of current draw. I use this board on my quadcopter too and I get current draws of up to 100A and did not have any problems with the board until now. The "discharge outputs" from the batteries you mentioned just tell you how much current your batteries can deliver for a longer time period without beeing damaged. How much current you really draw depends only on your motors/speed controllers.

Good product though quite heavy. Nice when you exchange your escs one in a while to other quads because you dont have to de-solder the leads from normal power distr boards. To be used with larger quads, not for mini/micro quads. I will mod mine with XT60 connectors instead of the 3.5mm bullits as I use these as a standard with escs. I like the optional LED-outlet.

Simple and convinient board fo power distribution on quad copters with 4 speed controllers.

Soldered connectors (3,5mm) are exposed do short circuit if you don´t protect them with some hot gun or epoxy glue.

Good board, simplifies the connection of ESCs, however for me, I preferred to desolder the connectors of 3.5 mm and weld Nylon T-Female Connectors. Can always extra welding points empty, for example a Bec.

Good power board. It aligns perfectly with HK control board. See my quad under construction in files sections.
