HobbyKing Quadcopter Control Board

HobbyKing Quadcopter Control Board
HobbyKing Quadcopter Control Board

The long awaited and highly anticipated HobbyKing Quadcopter control board is finally here!

Based on the popular and already well supported KK Control board, the Hobbyking Quadcopter control board is bringing Quadcopter madness to the masses with its breakthroughs in quality and price!

The HobbyKing Quadcopter control board uses Japanese Murata piezo gyros that are less sensitive to vibration than SMD type gyros and also features state of the art SMT manufacturing to ensure quality. This board also uses a user programmable Atmega48PA IC.

Size: 50.5mm x 50.5mm x 23.5mm
Weight: 14.5 gram
IC: Atmega48PA
Gyro: Murata Piezo
Input Voltage: 3.3-5.5V
Signal from Receiver: 1520us (4 channels)
Signal to ESC: 1520us (4 ESCs)

Whats is a Quadcopter Control board you ask?

The HobbyKing Quadcopter controller is a flight control board for 4 rotor Aircraft (Quadcopters). Its purpose is to stabilise the aircraft during flight. To do this it takes the signal from the three on board gyros (roll, pitch and yaw) then passes the signal to the Atmega48PA IC. The Atmega48PA IC unit then processes these signals according the users installed software 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 stabalises your Quadcopter.

The HobbyKing Quadcopter control board also uses signals from your radio systems receiver (Rx) and passes these signals to the Atmega48PA IC via the ail, ele, thr and rud 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: A user manual is available under the files tab.

Crenn, je ne suis pas sû*r de ce que vous ê*tes dé*sireux d'un avis pour, mais je me sers de Google translate pour lire les messages qui ne sont pas en anglais. Mais, c'est un super petit conseil pour apprendre comment fonctionne un multirotor. Le problè*me est qu'il ne peut ê*tre utilisé* pour une tricopter ou un quadcopter. Tout le meilleur et heureux de voler! Crenn, I'm not sure what you are wanting a notice for, but I've been using Google translate to read messages that are not in English. But, this is a great little board to learn how a multirotor functions. The problem is that it can only be used for either a tricopter or a quadcopter. All the best and Happy flying!

L'utilisation de ce mê*me contrô*leur de vol et quadcopter, j'ai pris cette vidé*o aé*rienne. Using this same flight controller and quadcopter, I took this aerial video.

I was hoping this board would work out for me of my tricopter, but after 3 weeks of trying to get it flashed, I'm giving up on it. It's irritating that I have to buy the more expensive board now, but you shouldn't need an EE degree and expensive gear just to get this flashed and working. :/

Aaplmike, Do a search for USBasp and you should find them for sale. Get one and then do a search for KKmulticopterflashtool. The first website that comes up is the one to download it from. Scroll down until you see [download] and get the latest version. Once you have it loaded on your machine, and the drivers for the USBasp loaded, your machine should see your board. Then it's a matter of opening the kkflashtool, scrolling to the correct board, then in the lower menu, scrolling to the type of multirotor you want to configure your board for. I flashed this board some years ago with Xcopter and after tuning it, it flew fantastic.. see videos below. If you have any further questions, please feel to ask. All the best and Happy flying!

because hobbyking in every major city of the world, where it sells its products does not put a team of technicians where they know to solve everything? so if we do not know to solve a problem, we will ship all items at our expense and gold give us a hand to set it up?
 RonRC 3229 points
Once you have the kkflashtool downloaded and running on your computer, you will need the USBasp device plugged in. You may have to get the drivers to make the device work. Once you have all of this accomplished, answer back and we can go through which firmware to choose for your multi. All the best and Happy flying!

anyone know how to update it for flight to X. what firmware TAKES? and where the drain?
 RonRC 3229 points
progettoaladino, do a search for, kkflashtool die molls. Click on the link that has the dot net behind it. That is the web page you need to download the flash tool.

I hope, however, that it is easier to configure it through the screen x

seems to be a good piece of kit. I'm running it on a homemade tricopter and it flys pretty stable after only 3 test flights (need some more tweaking). Loading firmware was pretty easy just followed the how to guide on YouTube. it took a little bit for me to figure out how to setup the tx and board about as long as it took me to figure out how to setup a 120deg swashplate for the first time without instructions, just follow the setup on the KK board site. Agree with others would be nice if it came with male to male servo leads for the receiver to board connection (i just soldered mine to the board). overall very happy good work HK, recommend if your building a multirotor.

HC Quad Frame and HC FC (Control Boad) build time is 1-2hrs quality is ok to good, comes partly built, the ply is sub std to carbon fiber however the product works, the gear is way too fragile and I removed it after the first flight. (HC please hear me I would like one of these in Carbon please) It needs some weight underneath to help get a good stable flight so dont cheap out on the undercart which is too weak the air frame will appreciate a little extra weight under neath. I am really happy it and others with XAircraft quads said its better :) (out of the box and value for money) I ran either 2 x 2200 3S (for a little extra weight) or 1 x 4000 3S I am running the HC $40 Controller and out of the box it is great very simple to install and use with the instructions (which are missing from the Quad frame I might add).. I set the Gains all to about 75pcnt with good results I did not flash or change anything on the unit pre install. It was installed out of the box so to speak Motors are the Turnigy Park 300's which are perfect! The props are the HC CW and CCW 8x4 props and work great and are fairly sturdy.. Rx is an Orange 6ch So all up its about $100 for a simple yet great flying Quad THANKS HC!!!! (Carbon Version please!!!!) how about a Xaircraft 450 and 650 copy :) Flight vid

I am pleased at how the board was shipped, packaged in foam box for protection. I am also pleased at how easily it was to undersand how to connect what connections to what pins on the board. My only problem I have is that after all my setup, I can't get my quad copter to fire up. Is there any trouble shooting documentation anywhere? Is there a specific arming and disarming sequence that needs to take place?
I gave this product only four stars because although it was pretty easy to figure out what connections go where, I could not find any trouble shooting documentation.

I have the FY 90 and 91Q but this one seems to be just as good as the FY units. I am going to purchase more.
