Are you following this procedure?

If you are using a Mode 2 Transmitter:
1) Power up your Model and Tx
2) Keep throttle at 0 (Left Stick at bottom position)
3) Then move the same stick to the right and hold for 2-3 seconds and the board would get armed. (You will hear a beep from the KK Board Buzzer and the LCD will show "Armed" on it.)
4) If it doesn't works then try moving and holding the same stick to Left (instead of right) for 2-3 seconds.

Let us know the results.

If these procedure fails, you should do a Receiver calibration on your KKK 2.1

Does the kk board say OK or ERROR? Go to the kk 2.1 menu called "receiver test". All the values should initially be 0 (except AUX). When you move your Tx sticks, it should show the correct direction e.g. front, right and "Idle" or "Full" for throttle. Reverse any necessary channels to achieve this effect. Set end points on your Tx so that the max receiver test values are 90-100 and the minimum -90-100. Have you also done the ESC calibration and loaded the correct motor layout?

follow the steps,( After all the motor directions, props etc are correct )
 
1) Place the quad in level surface, Means pitch and roll angle should be zero, If not calibrate Accelerometer, by placing in level surface.

2) enter the receiver test menu, Here you can see the Interpreted value from each receiver channels.

3) Hold the elevator stick to down, the value against elevator should be b/w -100 to -90, If it is higher (>-90) or Lower (-100) Then change your elevator channel lower end position (in Tx) to adjust this to the needed range. Also while you move the elevator stick to down, 'Back' should be displayed against this channel (in LCD), If it is displayed 'Front' Instead of Back, Just reverse your elevator channel.
Now Move elevator stick to High end, and change endpoints to adjust max. value in bet ween 90 - 100 range. (Also it should display Front against this value) .
Now the configuration for your elevator channel is completed

4) Follow the above step for Aileron(Roll) and Rudder (Yaw) channels , But in this case it will be displayed Left or Right according to stick movement instead of front or back as for the elevator channel. Also adjust the min, and max. stick values to fit in the same range as set in elevator. Reverse  the required channels.

5) Now for throttle channel the min. stick value should be higher than -90 and max. value less than +90 . On throttle max, it should display 'full'.

6) Now your accelerometer and receiver are calibrated and set up.

7) Apply 20 - 30 % throttle, quad should not lift from ground .

8 ) Move elevator stick a little forward, back motors should speed up, and hence quad starts tilting to f/w , on moving elevator b/w ,  the quad should tilt b/w .

9) Check aileron and rudder channels also in this way.

10) Now every thing is fine and LIFT OFF  to the skies,  try to hover at one place and apply necessary trims to make it stable.

        If you don't understand any thing, Feel free to ask out before breaking any props Grin

Happy landing Smiley

Before going to receiver calibration, Trim your rudder channel, to left side step by step (While holding left stick to downleft corner)

Motor 1400 kw
Battery 4200 mAh.
My tricopter is not lifting.  Is this happens due to propeller size or the self weight?

Kv rating only is not enough data to chose propeller . We need to know it's power, if you don't have that information, please post the make and model number of the motor, if you're unable to find that, just post some clear pics of your motor here .
     
               From your first post, I can see you haven't described your problem and set up in detail . One small request, If you are asking for help in any topic, you should make sure to post all the relevant Information that you found is associated with the topic - If you're not sure of something, it doesn't even matter to post the complete details of your build .
     
               I won't blame you for your non-informative posts, as you are a beginner to the hobby, and to the forum .
Now Please post the details of all the things that you are using in your copter, and some pics too

 Consider these : Frame size ,Material , weight .
                        Motor size , Power , Kv rating ,
                        ESC specifications ,
                        Flight controller (You already told it is KK2)
                        Battery  (You told it is 4200mAh, please say what cell configuration, C rating, and Weight )
                        Radio (CT6B)
                        Propeller Size and Pitch

               If you don't understand, any technical terms, and you think you're unable to explain some details, you can take a Picture of that part including labels or wrappers if it is there .

For a AUW of 1Kg, each of your motor should at least provide up to 700Gm thrust.

Check whether your motor provided that much thrust with a 8x4 prop ?

I assume your motor rotation directions, and Propeller directions are correct .

@tanmaymh,
As suggested earlier by Sooraj,
Could you post a pic or specs of your motors?
Are they Turnigy D2826/10 1400kv?
If so, attached Bruce Abbot test data may help you.

Does the battery voltage matters for the thrust of the motors?
My battery is 4200 mah 3s 20c and motor is A2212 10T 1400KV. And also in kk 2.1 the valuas of aileron,  elevator rudder and throttle are not adjusting to -100 to 100. I try it in pi editor bt doesn't work nothing changes in that value.  Is this also happens due to battery? Huh? My tricopter is not lifting is this due to low thrust or weight of itself? ?? Its total weight is 1385gm and body is of wood. Tell me the solution.

before that please specify your props here.

for reducing weight:
try with less weighed battery(can be 2200mah 3S 25C or greater)
reduce frame weight (your frame looks too heavy with too lengthy arms ),


Please never ever try to fly with non-insulated wires like shown in the previous post.
