The idea behind the KISS FC and firmware development was to simplify things, and due to intensive long term testing by some pretty good pilots we were able to optimize the code to a point where you could potentially get your quad in the air quite quickly.
Normally you just need to choose your Airframe in the GUI and are able to fly (at least with KISS ESC), otherwise you can download presets of well known pilots for given configurations and of course you can tweak the PIDs yourself through the GUI.
The software setup side is reduced as far as possible and many things are already taken into account for you, so if you bring some solid soldering skills you should be able to build your quad pretty quick.
A new feature is also the built-in telemetry. When used in combination with our 32bit ESC line its possible to show live telemetry data via OSD on your FPV live feed or in the KISS FC GUI.
You'll be able to get useful informations like the Voltage of your battery, Current consumption, ESC temperature and motor RPM.
Supported RX types:
- PPM Sum
- Spektrum Sat. (serial / DSM2 & DSMX)
- Futaba / Taranis SBUS
- Jeti ExBus
- Graupner SumD / SumO
- classic RX with single channel output
Mounting Holes: 3x3cm pattern, with 3.2mm holes (widely compatible)
Normally you don't need to download any driver for the USB support.
Windows 7, 8 and 10 take care for this on their own after you connected the device.
The connection diagramm / Pinout you find in KISS-FC GUI.
