Three Arducopter with one transmitter

One Arducopter is funny, but three Copters (at the same time) are Fun^3.

Everything controlled by one transmitter. Realized with some mixers and flight phases. I can control each one individually or all together.

Perfect Loiter with Arducopter 3.1.5 on APM 2.6.

Very nice. Your work is very relevant for the control of multiple drones at the same time from a single base station.

rc band switch & reconnect?

You could do something similar to what Daemon did on RCG groups using a Taranis, although you're basically maxed out at 2 quad unless you get really fancy with your programming.

Oh, Awesome.

I used channel 1-5 for copter one, 6-10 for copter two and channel 11-15 for copter three. When I control copter three for example, then copter one and two get a neutral stick position. The rest is done by flight phases.

Oh so this is basically using three radio transmitters in one. Cool.

No it's the DS-16 from JETImodel. A very nice controller...
