Turnigy Micro Quad V2 PNP ARF Includes KK2.0 LCD Flight Control Board
This tiny yet brilliantly designed PNP micro quad makes getting into hobby-grade quadcopters easy! We've done all the hard work for you by choosing the power system, installing the motors/ESCs, soldering all of the connections and mounting/setting up the control board.
***STOP Press!!*** UPDATED: This is the new Turnigy Micro Quad V2 which now includes our brilliant KK2.0 LCD flight control board!
This quad is the real deal, not a toy-ish micro with brushed motors and cute body shells. It features a high performance brushless power system and the highly capable, fully programmable Hobbyking KK2.0 Control Board.
With the Turnigy Integrated PCB Plug and Play Micro Quad, you simply need to add your own 4CH transmitter/receiver, 500-900mAH 2S 7.4V lipoly battery, setup your radio, complete the pre-flight check, mount the propellers and your ready to fly!
Updated to include our KK2.0 Flight Control system:
The original KK gyro system has been updated to an incredibly sensitive dual chip 3 Axis gyro and single chip 3 axis accelerometer system making this the most stable KK board ever and allowing for the addition of an Auto-level function. At the heart of the KK2.0 is an Atmel Mega324PA 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller with 32k of memory. An additional 2 motor output channels have been added to the KK2.0 allowing for a total of 8 motors to be controlled (Octocopter) to allow you to use this flight control system in any quad you wish!
Micro Quad Features: • Light weight design • High efficiency brushless power system pre-installed • Integrated PCB frame making for a tidy wiring layout • PNP configuration taking the guesswork out of choosing your own components • KK2.0 LCD flight control board
Included in box: 1 x Turnigy Integrated PCB Plug and Fly Micro Quad (motors/ESCs/ KK2.0 control board pre-installed) 4 x Propellers (2CW & 2CCW) 4 x Servo extension leads (for connecting your receiver to control board)
Ya 2S is the limit unless you wish to experiment until you see smoke, a likely possibility with using a 3s battery. I love the nano-tech batteries, I use a 450mah nano, 5G more in weight over the zippy 350. I have even mounted a 850 and get 10 minutes of flying even with pegging it allot.
I have a problem with this yawing to the left and with increase on throttle gets way worse. It also seems to surge on the throttle above ½*. This is happening after going through a thorough setup including flashing FW to V1.5, setting the PID roll/pitch PG 80, PL 100, IG 40, IL 20. Yaw PG 40, PL 20, IG 20, IL 10. I did found that two motors were not spinning in the correct direction so I unsoldered two of the motor leads and switched them on the ESC. I was able to get it to stop the left yaw by giving left trim which seemed strange, but I double checked yaw direction and this showed correct under the receiver setup section. Any ideas what is going on with this and how to correct would be much appreciated.
That sounds very odd. Motor 1 should be CW, 2 CCW, 3 CW, 4 CCW. Mine flies amazingly well and smoothly. I'm very surprised that the motor wiring was wrong on yours. Motor 1 is front/left, 2 is front/right, 3 is rear right and 4 is rear/left.
Like some others, I recommend using CA to attach 1.5mm carbon-fiber rod to the ends of the arms to strengthen them. Otherwise, this is a fantastic little machine.
I purchased this as my first multirotor to learn on, as it is a more capable system than a lot of the other quadcopters of similar size on the market. I have not been disappointed, and would highly recommend this product!
Go up to top of the page to "contact" , then clik on the support , to submit an issue . Don't think they use e mail.... I had to submit two issues , about the Missing Piezo , finally rc'd one today on a submission form , from months ago . fyi
This frame is absolute Garbage. I flew it on my lawn had a minor crash and the frame broke in the same spot as all the other breaks that are discussed by other users. I resoldered the broken trace and glued additional supports on the weak areas and flew it a second time for about 5 minutes on my lawn, had another minor mishap and the frame broke again. Avoid this little trashy toy.
I also agree, the frame is weak, I was mucking about trying to flip it and just pegging the throttle to bounce it back up cracked some bits off of it, the arm side supports that slot over the main board by the KK2 about 1.3 cm long broke off. I didn't crash and I broke it.
But It is a blast to fly so I added some carbon fiber rods to increase my arm strength and no more issues. I don't think the rods changed the dynamics or the time much that I notice either.
I recommend that anyone who buys this devise a method to reinforce the frame before it breaks. It is much easier to glue supports to the frame when it is intact. If you fly quads you crash them the two go hand in hand. unless you have a great deal of experience. I used Gorilla Glue.
I finally got my 2nd Micro , musta taken the slow barge from china ? As with the first one - NO piezo included. The description clearly states "A handy Piezo buzzer is also included with the board for audio warning " . I wrote HK folks and mentioned , if it was not to be included ? then remove the statement from the description .Finally they responded and one is enroute somewhere tween here and there and now awaiting them to ship me another one ..fyi
Took my baby out for a flight. Problem was it was very vindy, as you all know oriontation is a problem. My micro quad was so sky high and so far away I could barely see the little ****! I tried to bring the little **** back, but no luck. I lost my quad, its now gone. $100 straight to toilet.
thats quite sad man, don't worry i had it a lot worst then you man! same thing happened to me when i lost a x525 with a rabbit controller ($350 set) and i lost it somewhere in the woods *_*
just be a lot more careful next time, when you are losing the orientation, set the quad down!
I have my voltage set to 6.8v. My nanotech 850mah 40C 2s puts very close to 850mah back in - approx 6 min flight with 2 x LED optic fibre lights from hk. I got to this by starting with a higher voltage and working my way down after checking what capacity went back into my pack. I am unsure if this is the best discharge for lipo's but it is better than taking 5-10% more of capacity out as i had been doing :-( I suggest not go below 6.2v. The voltage readout is a crude measurement being pack voltage and does not account for weak cells in pack. You must also remember your lipo pack under load voltage and standing voltage are going to be different.
My original post did not include plus signs, I realise you figured this one out :-) but for others it should read "plus B" hole in the board and "positive in" on ESC
For those who have purchased this pre-assembled, you will find it very difficult to remove the KK board to get to the gnd tab beneath KK board to hookup voltage reading. YOU DO NOT REQUIRE THIS GROUND, IT IS COMMON. All you need to do is connect one wire from top of board thru hole labelled B (requires reasonable soldering skills) and connect this to in on ESC. DONE, you have voltage readout.
I did not get a buzzer. I bought a 12vdc buzzer from electronic store, connected to a JST plug and plugged into KK board taking note of polarity. now i have voltage alarm :-) :-)
Settings that suit me - QUAD X mode - roll / pitch PG 80, PL 100, IG 40, IL 20. Yaw PG 40, PL 20, IG 20, IL 10. Self level PG 40, PL 24. Increased yaw scale to 110 for nice response :-) Settings worked fine on v1.2 and v1.5 , could probably do with some finer tuning but you are in the ball park with these settings.
I put a red and blue fibre-optic lights on it and it is a blast to fly at night - and during the day :-) :-)
Well worth it for me, first quad and loving it
I ordered a 2nd one of these micro quads , approx month ago . It showed a tracking # . On checking over the weeks - nothing cud be found . I checked it again this am - still nothing showing so wrote a note to HK support " did my order get tossed in the pacific ?" Amazingly , when I checked it once more this pm SUDDENLY it showed being handled and shipped out of Singapore ??[today ] I believe they tossed package in trash can and if I had not inquired ? it still would be hidden somewhere - in a coal bunker ? or the engine room ?
I did try with stock programming but does not work at all... I down tuned almost every parameter to get some proper response from it... For one thing stick influence must be set much higher, P settings must be almost quater etc. I'll play with it and see how I can fix myself, but IT does NOT fly well with default parameter values...
did you make sure that the motor layout is quad - X?
also what version are you running on your FC?
but thats weird tho, mine was on default settings and it flew really well, i just found it not sensitive enough tho~
Also are you having problems when the stabilization mode is on?
Hi fellow quad pilots. I bought this item and want to know, anybody out there that tuned it stable and care to share KK2 parameters with me? I did not buy the kit but bought it in various parts, only diff I got 3 blade 5x3.5 props... Hope someone can help to get me going
I guess even though these show as being in stock, they really aren't. My order has been sitting for over a month and hasn't shipped. The person on live chat support says they expect to actually get them in on April 7th.
I have a previous version and the props are a press fit, On mine I remove the motor from the base to expose the bottom of the rotor shaft, usually retained by an e-clip.
I support that shaft end as I press fit the prop onto the other end of the shaft. I use a brass drift in a vise to rest the rotor shaft on as I drive down on the prop, this protects the motor bearings. I also use a socket (small) at the prop head and my plastic hammer. Keep it straight, don't smack it hard trying to seat it with one whack, slowly drive it on making sure the base of the rotor shaft is sitting on the support you provided.
Did experiment with the prop mounting hole diameter, the idea of a press fit is the tight fit keeps the prop on. Keep that in mind as what looks to be a tight fit may not be under full stress of flight. Didn't like the results, Prop creeping up the shaft, so at the most i use a de-burring tool to create a slight bevel so it starts better when fitted on the shaft.
Props are way out of balance , at least mine were . Drill out hub , as mentioned below then balance them and press on After you go thru KK2 board , which will show you direction of rotation on each motor . Choose Quad X as I chose wrong one at first and it would just flip over :-)
Make sure you set 'quad x' :-)
Is it normal for this quad to have a high pitch squeal whilst running / flying or have I damaged motor bearings getting tight props on? I was going to try to change ESC timing to medium from high but does not allow me to change. My voltage also reads 0.0v, anyone know how to rectify this?
alguien podria darme informacion en Castellano por favor acerca del setup, no puedo terminar de configurar el acelerador, mientras mantengo presionado los botones 1 y 4 y termina el ciclo de ajuste con las indicaciones sonoras puedo acelerar los motores pero apenas suelto los botones ya no lo puedo hacer mas, como debo continuar con el seteo?? graccias
Ya lo encontré* debia "armar" el equipo para que funcione.
Good Quad for the money. No instructions included with mine. All I could was find was the control board instructions. Installed the props and receiver and it flew god for about 5 minutes til 1 prop fell off at about 60 feet in the air over pavement. needless to say this was the end of the frame and 1 motor. All the prop hubs were cracked. The holes in the props are to small for the motor shafts so the prop hubs cracked when I pressed them on. After rebuilding it with a new frame and motor it flys good. Just drill out the prop hubs just a little smaller than the motor shaft size balance them then ca the props on.

the electronics of the quad is great very stable, the only problem i had was that the quad frame is very weak... drop it about 1 meter and one of the piece that mounts the motor broke off... so just gotta say
be VERY VERY CAREFUL! don't drop it!

This quad-copter is amazing for its value but there where some cons
1. The material the used(PCB) is very weak as I broke it when I got it.
2. The nuts to hold the motor in place is extremely small.
3. The propellers where extremely hard to put on as the shaft on the motor is larger than the hole the propellers.
4. The propellers are very weak.
5. The wires where on soldered on properly and came off (or may be it was just mine)
Now for the pros.
1. The ESCs there extremely powerful for its size.
2. The motors give a lot of torque.
3. The model came with the KK2.0 flight board which was very impressive.
4. The parts where very easy to repair.
5. The handling of this quad is outstanding!
This kit is a very beginners kit as it almost comes complete.
The parts I you to fly it where Turnigy 9x tx set, Hobbyking Simplex lipo charger, Turnigy nano-tech 850mah 2s and the kit its self.

Super produit, une fois déballé de sa mousse de protection faite sur mesure pour le transport, il suffit d'installer un récepteur 4 ou 5 voies, vous branchez une batterie 2s 850mA mini ensuite vous suivez les instructions sur la carte "contrôleur KK.2 nouvelle génération" C'est hyper facile à mettre en l'air et ça vole du premier coup. Un seul bémol prévoir des porte hélices pour améliorer la sécurité de votre modèle. Pour les accros des réglages bien lire la notice en français car cette carte est vraiment géniale. En clair ce Micro-Quad est un super joujou.

Good in theory but the design and material used lets it down. One hard crash and you will break a motor mount. The material isn't fibre glass and is very weak. Plus the holes near the motors weaken it further.
You are better off getting the "Micro Integrated PCB w/ESCs Quadcopter Frame 235mm (KIT)" in my opinion.
