i would like to build a tailsitter and fly it with a flight controller such as ardupilot. ardupilot seems to support single/dual airplane motor configurations, or standard copter rotor layouts.
however, i'd like the tailsitter to have multiple motors in line with the wings
something like this
(not supported by ardupilot?)
i dont think ardupilot actually supports either of those, but it does appear to support this one:
(supported by ardupilot)
is it possible to use the configuration in image (3) above, but simply replicate the signal to each left/right motor to get left/right pairs of motors as in image (1) (that flies and hovers well)?
if so, how could i go about it? i'm assuming i'd still need an ESC per motor. but would i also need to boost the signal coming from the flight controller if it's getting shared? or is there some better/correct way to go about this?
would there be issues with feedback from the motors to the ESC back to the flight controller?
