Setting Manual for FlyCam NaviBoard
The FlyCam Naviboard is equipped to work with both FlyCam Multi-copter and kkmulticopter, adding more features and functions for those boards.
The NaviBoard is easily connected to the FlyCam Red board, Blue board and Black board.
It is also possible to connect it to the kkmulti-copter Board through its’ receiver port.
A need for FlyCam NaviBoard
FlyCam's Multicopter Boards are equipped with 3-axis gyros that enable a pilot to maintain stabilized flight, and they are excellent at doing that.
The board by itself can not be autonomous, and thus requires a pilot at all times.
The extended board “NaviBoard” is equipped with 3-axis gyros, 3-axis accelerometer, barometer, and GPS.
With these sensors, the extended board is capable of sensing its attitude in the air in regard to the horizon.
The sensor enabled stability allows for a stabilized fixed heading, position hold, GPS return home and altitude hold.
Connecting with FlyCam Multicopter (kkMultiCopter)
If connected, remove the RX and mount PCB supports as shown below.
Insert the extended "NaviBoard" on to the PCB supports.
Connect the GPS module to the NaviBoard as shown. The example below shows a Blue Board mated to the extender board.

Flycam's red, blue and black boards are easily mounted without the use of signal cables; however If other kkmulticopter boards are used, it will be necessary to connect the two boards using the signal cables via the appropriate ports.
We recommend firmware XXcontroller KR v2.1 or later for the Blue Board and FlyCam v2.1 or later for the Black Board.
Firmware V2.1 or later, supports stick centering of the TX, as well as calibrating the NaviBoard board at the same time.
Connection the Rx
Add PCB supports 4pcs on to the NaviBoard board and insert the GPS plate, the plate can be secured by further screwing supports or nuts, and it’s now ready for connection to the RX.
The NaviBoard supports a maximum of 9 channels.
The supplied cables will be different to the normal cables, in that the black and red cables are used as signal cables along with the white cable.
Connect the normal end of the cable on to the NaviBoards’ signal rail; match the corresponding single end to the appropriate signal channel of your RX.
Power to the NaviBoard is via the RX power rail from one channel. Your RX may be different but the principle is the same; a power cable can be made up by removing the white signal wire. Please check the polarity when inserting in to the NaviBoard positive and negative rail as shown below.
1'st channel : Aileron Pay attention to picture above (Fig 6) and note the positive and negative from the RX has been plugged in to
the aileron port; for illustration, however, the power can be plugged into any port.
2'nd channel : Elevator
3'rd channel : Throttle
4'th channel : Rudder
5'th channel : Maintain altitude ( 2 position switch on,off )
6'th channel : Autopilot by GPS ( 3 position switch,(0) Free Flight,(1'st) Position Hold,(2'nd) Coming Home )
7'th channel : Tilt servo
8'th channel : Roll servo
9'th channel: To enable carefree, should be assigned to 3'rd position switch of 9th channel
1'st position(Off) is the free-flight mode (Carefree Off)
2'nd position(Middle) is carefree On mode
3'rd position(On) is waypoint or follow me mode
If this mode is not enabled, will be the function that the heading always toward to home during carefree.
A minimum of 6 channels is required to operate the NaviBoard. We recommend the use of an RX with 9 or more channels.
When you plug in the power, the following beeping alarm will sound. If any flight mode switch is in its’ active position,
the alarms are as follows:
- In the case of the throttle stick being up ( Red LED light's )
- In the case of channel 5 being active or forgotten in "maintain altitude" position. (Green LED light's up)
- In the case of channel 6 being active or forgotten in "Position hold" or "Coming Home" (Blue LED light's up)
- In the case of channel 9 being active or forgotten in "turn heading" (Red LED light's up)
If you need to reverse the switch for altitude and GPS, please reverse a applicable channel in the Tx.
The Tx set with Air Plane mode and should be clear all mixing.
The travel range of all channel set with +- 100,also D/R setting is just the same.
If it decrease the travel of Tx, can't enter to each setting mode.
