Hobbyking i86L Multi-Rotor Control Board (Lite Edition)

Hobbyking i86L Multi-Rotor Control Board (Lite Edition)
Hobbyking i86L Multi-Rotor Control Board (Lite Edition)

Hobbyking i86L Multi-Rotor Control Board (Lite Edition) features the same level of stability and ease of setup as the standard i86. The i86L features a basic set of multi-rotor layouts and an easy ESC and and stick centering calibration mode via the dip switches.

Controlled by an Atmel Mega168PA 8-Bit RISC based micro controller and utilizing a single 3-axis MEMS gyro the Hobbyking i86L Multi-Rotor Control Board is capable of 6 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 i86L can fit in the smallest of craft and includes a small piece of double sided tape to install.

The Hobbyking i86L Multi-Rotor Control Board supports:
Tri copter
Quad copter X/+
Hex copter/H6 copter
Y6 Copter
All of the above modes can be set in "Normal" mode or "Sports" mode (default normal)

Input Voltage: 4v to 6v
Input signal: 50hz standard PPM
PWM Frequency: 400hz for ESC, 50hz for servos
Gyro scale: +/- 500dps, ODR: 800hz

I need USBasp AVR Programming Device for ATMEL proccessors to program this control board??

You do not need a usb device to program this control board, you select model type through DIP switches and use screwdriver to adjust gyros.

Well, after a couple of repairs of my quad I finally bought the KK2.1 and put it on my small (250mm) quad instead of this one. It is sooo stable 'right out of the box' compare to this one, i86L. I wanted a stable easy quad for play in the park with FPV and didnt get it with this one. Maybee tri-setup is better or other plane-set up -Flitetest did get a stable plane with this board. My experience just... :)

Hi Mekefalk, I would not recommend this board for stability unless you are building a multirotor with long motor booms (12in or more) I used this board to build an acro tricopter and it works well for that.

Here I am doing acro in my front yard using this board.

Built a quad X but the yaw compensation is to the opposite direction? All other gyros work in the right direction to compensate but the yaw actually accelerates the quad in the same direction and it all starts to spinn full blast!?? The potentiometer works but doesnt solve the problem since its to the wrong direction. Someone with simliar problem? Thanks

Well, after some (alot) research I have come to the conclusion that my X quad (actually an I-frame) is to weak and when twisting at fast yaw-correction they actually get so much pull-force so the frame rotates in the wrong direction instead of just the sum of the torque rotates the frame in the other direction. So when doing a X with an I frame, it should not be to weak. In this case two 10mm square booms 55cm long. CC of rotors around 50cm. But maybee some of you already know that... :)

Hi When getting up from the ground around the bend How do I balance it

but the fans do not have the same direction of rotation? so how do you rise? maybe he inserted two fans upside down.
 chly3001 302 points
maybe he did
 RonRC 3238 points
progettoaladino, he either has counter rotatin fans (there are some that are available), has two fans opposite each other off set to counter the rotation of the fans, or has servos to tilt the fans.

1 thumbs up!
isnt the best board i think but the setup was really easy and the switches are nice to work with!

A great board. It seems the stick scaling is better than on the i86. Small size makes it great for small quads. MEMS gyros are located in the centre of the board, which may count for nought, but seems a better approach than having them on an edge. 16MHz clock. I like the stick centring and esc calibration being via the dip switches and very robust if you like crashing often as I do.

Very straight forward and very easy to setup. Make sure you use a PLUSH ESC as Red Brick ESC's does not work with this KK Board.

The PCB is smaller than I thought it would be and also it is very light. This is my first try with comercial multirotors, so my opinion is based only on what I got. The setup is ridiculous easy, it worked straight out on the first try. It seems to me that it can't handle very well wind gusts and also with little to none throttle, motors spin in different speeds. Maybe this last fault is "normal" or is due to ESC program, I'm not sure. Anyway, I'm happy flying my first quad, no drama until now. Nice product, excellent value.

Works Great very easy to set up(DONT OVER THINK IT as I did look in the discussion area lol I should know better) As many have said plug it in and do the 2 steps and your off you just need to fine tune the gains seems very stable too,what else can one say but get one, for the money you cant beat it this would make for a GREAT first Multi for someone just getting into this area of R/C
