I am going to convert my standard quad to a X8 configuration.
Are there any particular points I should take into account about either mechanical or electrical setup ?
I intend to use smaller props on top and larger ones on the bottom as it appears from research that this optimizes the efficiency of such coaxial configs (that are known to loose up to 30% of efficiency versus standard one plane versions).
I will put 10"x4,7 on top and 11"x4,7 on bottom.
Due to the bottom props, I will have to get rid of my current landing legs (are in the way of bottom props). So I plan to get an undercarriage type of landing system.
Will I be able to download the X8 firmware from mission planner setup screen or do I have to edit the config.h file to uncomment the OCTO_QUAD define ?
