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)
Specs: Input Voltage: 4v to 6v Input signal: 50hz standard PPM PWM Frequency: 400hz for ESC, 50hz for servos Gyro scale: +/- 500dps, ODR: 800hz Operating temp: -40° C to 85° C Size: 40mm x 40mm Weight: 8g
I would need some help choosing a flight controller for a Quadcopter.I would like a x configuration for it.Note I'm a beginner too.Among HobbyKing i86L Lite Edition and HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board V3.0,which is the best and is the most easy to setup? Actually I have backordered KK2.0,if it does not appear in another 2 weeks the I might have to change it.So,that's why I ask this question.
Arthur, I would say the i86L is easier to setup because you dont need to attach it to a computer to get it going. Just follow the instructions carefully during setup. This board does have a very fast scaling and does quite good for aerobatics, but if you want it to fly smooth, set the dual rates on your radio to about 50% and expo to 30 or 35% and it should fly quite stable. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
hi, noob question here, apparently hk doesn't call them wires, cables, or leads, receiver wires, controller wires or servo wires. I have been trying the search here with no joy, All I find are F to M servo "extensions." Please, where do you buy those 10cm - 20cm "male to male" bright, plastic coated magic-metal strings with plugs, designed to connect the pins on these boards to the RX? Seriously.. Thanks! **divot (I'm looking for the exact same wires pictured with HKPilot Mega Here: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__37328__HK
No. This board only has MEMs gyros that are a bit less sensative to vibration than the pizo type. Though this board can be made to fly quite stable, I like to use them for aerobatic multirotors due to the high stick scaling afforded on this board. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
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
