Please not this will not fit the new kk-2.1 for sale at Hobbyking

A low profile and light weight case for the Hobbyking KK2.0 Multirotor flight controler.

I printed this on a UP! which deals with the overhangs on the lid
For other printers I am not sure if it will work ?

When testing the fit with a friends KK board I notice that the newer boards have a JST connector for the buzzer,mine had a servo conector.
We think the jst plug will still fit in the servo hole if you carefully swap the terminals so the plug will work upside down.
I may fix this later hence work in progress.

Some notes
the pins sit slightly proud with the top.
I'm not sure how well this will protect your board in a crash (i'm sure I will find out soon :-)
There are no holes in the base because I forgot to add them (I used sticky pads) i may fix this as well.
I used a single JWT conector and a single pcb header pin for the voltage conector

Made it. Love it!
It was a tight fit but it went together well.
Just run a small drill bit down the button holes to remove the burrs and it works great!
I will post pics later...

This is pretty awesome, but I did have some issues though getting the two halves to easily fit together. The groove is just a bit too small. I'd suggest making it just 100-200 microns wider on each side, and widening the button holes by about the same amount. Maybe my printer just isn't calibrated perfectly, but by making the above changes, it might help lots of folks.


I love this and have used it for my KK2 boards with great success, would show pics if I could figure out how to! (maybe send me your email address to [email protected] and I will return pics)

My question is ..... I'm a newbie here and to 3D printing (Replicator 2 owner using PLA) and I want to make a similar case for the DJI NAZA controller. Can you give me any clues/hints what design software you used to create your KK2 case that I should look at?

Cheers, Dale

Sent you a PM

Just tried to download, and two of the files seem to be corrupt. The Case_top and Case files will not load. The Bottom and Buttons load fine. Help Please!! Do you happen to have the source files for these?

Thanks I will look into it
What format would you like the files ? if I can export them from viacad

I think I fixed them now I also uploaded the viacad file
Let me know if you need a different format

That's really neat. I'd be tempted to add a little "roll cage" to stop the connectors snapping off in a really bad crash. By the way, you can reduce the number of wires significantly: you need all signal pins connected, but only one connection of 5v and ground to the RX unit, and only the ground and 5v from one ESC.
