KK 2.1.5 released – wait what?

The KK 2.1.5 flight controller board has been released!

kk215Ok so this is basically the same animal as the KK 2.1, meaning MPU6050 and Atmel 644PA. According to HK, the new thing is “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.”

Was that really worth a hardware upgrade? Are we going to get asymptotic hardware updates now? Is the KK 2.1.5.25 upon us next? In any case, the good news is that the price is still the same, USD $29.99 and it’s otherwise identical to the KK 2.1 flight controller we reviewed recently.

    It IS worth an upgrade from a manufacturer who find many are connected incorrectly and they ‘warranty’ the item and eat the cost. If this assures a less number of returns, it makes prefect sense for customer service and product reliance.

    thanks.
