Connecting Arducoptor Y6 and mini Kk2.1.5 flight controller

#1

Hi. I am currently putting together my new y6 kit. I have opted for the mini KK2 flight controller.
The y6 instructions suggest that all the ESC’s need connecting to the power distribution board but I’m not sure if each ESC Needs pluging into the KK2 instead. Can anyone help?
I’m also not sure how it gets its power. I’m sure it doesn’t connect directly to the battery…

Hopefully someone can give me a nudge in the right direction.

Thanks

Tom

Hi

The power distribution board splits the power form the battery to each of the ESC’s.

So you will plug the battery and all your ESC’s into the PDB. From the PDB you will see that there is some other wires coming out of it, some thin colorful ones, and a thin black and red wire. The black and red wire is what will power the KK board, so plug that into one of the motor output connectors (to the 5V, and GND pins) and then connect the other multi colour wires to the signal pins on the KK board.

Let me know if you have any other questions

Great! Thank you.

On the kk2 which of the column of pins are the signal pins out of the 3 columns.

I have found a wiring diagram so think I’m all good now.

Thanks for your help.
