I have found the KK board to unstable for the type of application I am going use it in. I now use a APM 2.0 on a DJI frame with 11X4.7 Gemfan props. I started out using a KK board with X525 frame I spent more time picking up parts from all the crashes. I like the X525 frame but it is no longer flyable do to all the crashes. I just ordered a new X525 that I will setup like the DJI. I hope with the larger frame that this should give me more stability in high winds
