Hello Ardu Masters!
I'm hoping to start a conversion of an existing fixed wing to a QuadPlane and am seeking some guidance before I embark on this endeavor. As a disclaimer I have no aerospace engineering training (or ECalc etc.) so please be kind
In a nutshell I'm starting off with an Event38 E384 that I would like to modify to VTOL. The plane comes stock with Turnigy G32 600kv motor and 4 Cell, 5.0 Ah LiPo batteries. It currently has an AMP 2.6 which I plan to replace with a Pixhawk 1. The aircraft with payload is approximately 6 lbs.
My first hurdle is to properly identify which motors, ESCs, power distribution board etc. will be needed for this build. I'm hoping that everything can be powered from the existing batteries. If anyone could please recommend some good choices for these quad components I would be very grateful. I have a bunch of old IRIS+ motors and parts but I'm sure I'm not lucky enough that those would be useful.
Thank you for any help and guidance you can provide! Michael
