I've flown quad copters for a couple years now until several months ago I experienced a power failure up in the air and it came crashing down 400'. So now I'm looking for a new one and I was thinking of building my own because I was always a little frustrated with run time.
I'm thinking of a rightwing Drak 60" version but adding 4 or 8 rotors for VTOL.
Can anyone with experience here please tell me if such a thing would work and what issues I may face?
I'm fairly advanced with electronics and such. But have never built an aircraft before. Looking forward to it. i just don't want to start something that will be impossible to fly.
Ideally i can have VTOL and hover features but also long run time with regular flight.
thank you much
