Hobbyking KK2.1.5 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board With 6050MPU And Atmel 644PA

The next evolution of the rotor revolution is here!! The KK2.1.5 is packing new found power with updated sensors, memory and header pins.

The KK2.1.5 is next big evolution of the first generation KK flight control boards. The KK2.1.5 was engineered from the ground up to bring multi-rotor flight to everyone, not just the experts. The LCD screen and built in software makes install and setup easier than ever. A host of multi-rotor craft types are pre-installed, simply select your craft type, check motor layout/propeller direction, calibrate your ESCs and radio and you’re ready to go! All of which is done with easy to follow on screen prompts!

The original KK gyro system has been updated to an incredibly sensitive 6050 MPU system making this the most stable KK board ever and allowing for the addition of an auto-level function. At the heart of the KK2.1.5 is an Atmel Mega644PA 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller with 64k of memory. An additional polarity protected header has been added for voltage detection, so no need for on-board soldering. A handy piezo buzzer is also included for audio warning when activating and deactivating the board.

The KK2.1.5 added polarity protection to the voltage sense header and a fuse protected buzzer outputs, in case something is accidentally plugged in incorrectly. The voltage sense line has been updated for better accuracy. The board is clearly labeled and the voltage sense line color has been changed to red for easy identification, making installation and connections a snap.

If you’re new to multi-rotor flight or have been unsure about how to setup a KK board then the KK2.1.5 was built for you. The 6 Pin USBasp AVR programming interface ensures future software updates will be quick and easy.

What is a Multi-Rotor Control board you ask?

The HobbyKing KK2.1.5 Multi-Rotor controller is a flight control board for multi-rotor aircraft (Tricopters, Quadcopters, Hexcopters etc). Its purpose is to stabilize the aircraft during flight. To do this it takes the signal from the 6050MPU gyro/acc (roll, pitch and yaw) then passes the signal to the Atmega644PA IC. The Atmega644PA IC unit then processes these signals according the users selected firmware 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 stabilizes your multi-rotor craft.

The HobbyKing KK2.1.5 Multi-Rotor control board also uses signals from your radio systems receiver (Rx) and passes these signals to the Atmega644PA IC via the aileron, elevator, throttle and rudder 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: It is all ways recommended to update to the latest software version as part of your initial setup.(this is different than v1.6 for 2.0)

Hi guys, am part way through building a quad copter. after powering up and doing all the pre setup stuff, I connected all inputs and outputs. On connecting the battery, the screen lit then went blank. Any suggestions? Also now if I power it up from a Rx battery, after approx 30 seconds, a warning beep and shuts down. Leaving a lit screen, no writing on it.

I am building a quadcopter using the KK2.1.5 controller and four Afro 30A ESCs. The KK2.1.5 manual indicates that all cables from the first ESC should connect into M1 in order to provide signalling and power to the first bus (i.e. which is used by the controller itself). Similarly, the manual states that all cables from the second ESC should connect into M2 to provide signalling and power to the second bus* the second bus powers servos on M5-8. For the third and fourth ESCs which will be connected to M3 and M4 the manual states that if SWITCHED BECs are being used then the red ( VE) cable should be disconnected. So my first question is: do Afro 30A ESCs have switched or linear BECs and if they are of the linear type do I still have to disconnect red on M3 and M4? Note I have read the Afro manual and it does not state the BEC type (my best guess is linear). My second question is how do I power my receiver - will power be "passed through" the controller board or will I have to power it separately? If I have to power it separately then I assume I could take positive and negative cables from either the ESC attached to M3 or M4 as a source? Thanks in advance, Stuart

These are great boards to stabilize just about any multi-rotor project you can think of.

Here it works for my single copter too.

Tiny changes over KK2.1 and not that much different from KK2.0, but a really great board all around that is so easy to set up and performs well too. Thanks HK for making it available to the masses :)
