i might have to do a review. the 21mp camera is excellent at producing high quality 3d models for mapping.

must admit this anafi is tiny and looks like a toy in a lunchbox but performs like a professional product.

Hey guys.

I soldered new plugs for the alarm on my kk2 board last night and plugged it all in.

I checked that my plugs were the right way round but I didnt check that the cables were correct. ( I assumed that they would be as the cables were new and came connected to the plugs already. )

I plugged the battery in to check all was working and a loud crackle and huge puff of smoke came from the kk2 board.

I checked the board and wires for damage but couldnt see any so re-did the wires and plugs and tried again.

All seems to work ok and I took if for a low flight to test it. I was wondering whether anyone else had done similar and if it is safe to fly now.

I have just bought a gopro and dont want to take it up with the kk2 if it may stop working mid flight due to the possible damage I have done by wiring it up wrong.

I guess the moral of the story is always check wires properly and dont assume that just because its new that its right.

If it were my Quad or Gopro, I would just get another KK2.0 board, given the cost of the thing.

Not worth risking the rest of your equipment given how affordable the KK2.0 is.  :smiley:

Yeah I suppose I should change the kk2.

Will do it tonight if I get time and hopefully I wont mess it up again.


nub

yup as bigbelly says not worth risking your other gear for such a cheap component, best off replacing it.

Are these the two wires that the beeper that comes with the KK V2.0 LCD board is atached to as i am not sure which way they are connected to the KK V2.0 board but at a guess i think the black wire goes to the left and the red wire goes on the right but i am not sure if either nothing will beep or it could blow the board.  :frantic:

paul82

Its the 2 wires soldered under the board to power it. Not the wires with the alarm on.

davethepitch

Hello paul82

I know which you are talking about now but the connectors i was think about i am not sure which way the buzzer connector goes on the two pins on the top of the KK V2.0 but i think the black wire goes to the left and the red wire goes to the right looking down on the board.

I also would change the KK2 dont risk your gopro  ~~

Vidal

Hey dave. I plug mine in with the red on the right.  I dont think it matters tho as ive plugged it in the wrong way before and it still worked

nub

i don';t think it matters what way polarity is unless your connecting 2 or more.
Point and click.

Young Paul82 sir ... I have a spare KKv2 sitting in the workshop doing nowt .. I bought 2 on a whim with someone';s buddy code thinking I';d build 2 quads - but never did  :whistling:

If you PM me your address you can have it - I hate to see it gathering dust when others are in need  ;)

It may need resetting to factory as I think I messed with the settings once - but it';ll be fine I';m sure ... and the magic smoke is still inside I know that  :azn

Let me know if you want it  ~~

Gaza07

That is a very nice gesture XH558 and what makes this forum a great place we have a great community spirit here  :bravo:
