Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

KK V2.0 board mounting issue

Hello all

I have been reading that i need to place the KKV2.0 board facing forward on the quad with the buttons at the back of the quad.

But this morning i noticed that the holes in my top frame plate are not facing forward and you can see that if i mount the KK board straight onto the nylon supports as in the picture it will be facing either of the white arms and not in between the white arms of my quad which would be forward.

Is this going to make any difference if i mount it or will i have to modify the top frame so as the KK board faces exactly forward.  :confused:

I';ve used some double sided foam tape from the local pound shop. Doubled it up for a little extra clearance :-)

I had the same problem ... built a quad for an old Black KK board where the forward axis was on the corner not the flat front - then got a V2 board with a screen and buttons and the mounting I made was all wrong ...

So I made a ply plate and just spun the KK round on the plate ... see the pics  ;)

I have been to get some clear perspex and make a platform and drill holes to mount it on the nylon stand offs for the KK board to sit on.

I am not sure whether to make a round platform or a square one but i doubt whether either shape would affect or create any wind resistance or turbulence that could affect flight performance.

Well if you look at mine its pretty much octagonal  ;)

I doubt if there';ll be any significant wind resistance to any shape ... quads are hardly aerodynamic at the best of times :rolleyes: :laugh:

I guess the shape of the platform would not matter and i think it is just me over complicating the build.

Hello all

I soon sorted the platform for the KK V2.0 board i got hold of some perspex from a local supplier who gave me some off cuts of different thicknesses out of their waste bin.

I used my hole saw and just cut some 4mm holes in it and simply mounted the KK board facing the front.
