Flyduino KISS Flight Controller
Flyduino KISS Flight Controller
The KISS FC was designed to simplify things for pilots who just want the important things in a Flight Controller. While other FC Firmwares are complicated and have a million parameters to change, the KISS FC was intended to follow the Keep It Super Simple philosophy and remove all the unneccessary extras and clutter so the FW is a new beast from the ground up. Sporting a whole new PID controller and simple GUI with only one setup page, the KISS FC gets you in the air quickly and flies amazingly.
Combining the KISS24a ESC allows you to use the telemetry from the ESC's and put voltage, current draw, mah consumption, motor RPM, and ESC temperature onto an OSD via the KISS OSD or through telemetry systems such as FRsky's S.Port so you can have various data and warnings on your Transmitter.
If you want to play with GPS, return to home, want to constantly change the color of your LED's each time you turn left or right or have it make you coffee, then the KISS FC is not for you. If you have a mini quad and want it to fly locked in and with confidence then the KISS FC is right for you.

The Fc works great out of the box for several months, then It starts to oscillate. reflashing the firmware seems to help but every time I do it the FC needs to be reflashed sooner than before until I cannot stop the oscillations and just have to give up on it about a year later. This has happened on about 4 FCs and I think it has to do with crashes and the gyro even though I dont crash much.
Very nice fc is very easy to set up and have owned 5 all of them still work and deliver great performance.
Just finished my first ever build with a Martian ii with a kiss fc and so far it's worked amazing.. I picked the kiss fc because of it's ease of installation and wiring... I think every build I'm gonna use a kiss it's durable,reliable and easy to configure ..thanks Chad for being apart of the group that developed this...
Recently purchased a KISS FC along with a TramHV 600mH VTX for my Butter Kwad build and once again superior turn around time on shipping, excellent craftsmanship on items purchased.
The ease of flashing and upgrading software to the KISS FC is made so easy thanks Chad W. for the great detail in your YouTube videos you generate in this hobby
Yes, they have to figure out their windows/ mac compatibility issues at flyduino, but once you get this puppy set up and in the air, it's as smooth as ... i don't know what. But it is definitely a great FC. I don't think I want to try any other board out there. Yep! This is my first, and very likely will be my second.
Im a windows user as one of the other comments says and i love this fc. Yeah you have to use defuse and kind of fiddle with it for but for what you get i love it. its so simple to work with it and use it and everything. I have only killed one of these boards and its from me flying into a tree and a branch ripped some components off of the actual board ordered a replacement one really fast, and it works great now as well.
I went out of my way to try out the kiss FC. It came so far out of date that it would not communicate with the Flyduino program. I attempted to update via various YouTube videos from RotorRiot and others. The board seems to be stuck in bootloader mode so I physically removed the button. Still no activity from the blue LED. Extremely disappointed that KISS isn't remotely close to Super Simple!
The three stars is for the packaging, not the product. The KISS FC is fantastic and I've had no problems with it luckily because when I received it the micro-usb port was crushed shut and the baggy it came in was torn. This is more UPS's fault than Rotor Riot's, but I think delicate components like this should come at least in a small box within the envelope.
For me this is the best FC out there. 1. So easy to install and connect ESC, everything is nicely labeled. 2. The software to setup is by far the easiest and user friendly software out there. I must say standard settings and your quad fly's great. Tweak it and it fly's awesome. Worth every penny. Also for the Rotor Riot store. You guys are great I have placed many many orders with you guys and your fast. Plus when you run out of stock I never have to wait long until you guys are in stock. You are my first go to site if I need something. Thanks all. BustNProps
