Is there a way to make two motor planes with one motor configuration?


I was wondering, specifically for the ft guinea pig or planes like that, can you switch them to a one motor config?
Thank you!

Do you mean convert the design so that it uses one large motor instead is two smaller ones, or do you just mean eliminating differential thrust so that it behaves like a single motor plane?

If the former, there are at least two designs that have both options. There is a single and dual motor Sparrow and I’ve heard of both options on the Legacy as well. The Guinea Pig would be an odd option for a single motor since you couldn’t put it in front of that huge nose, so it would have to be on a really tall pod or something.

If the latter, yes. Just run a y connector from the receiver to the two ESCs, don’t do any mixes, and it should fly the same as a single motor plane.
