Balr14, the "mCX Chinook" works like you say - it has 4 motors, two coaxial drives.

The reason the "commercial" kits didn't do it that way is because they were mostly trying to build a scale Chinook, and one of the cool things about it is the interfering rotors, which requires them to be geared together, even if you use two engines like the real one.

For this project I think a standard quad copter in "rectangular" configuration might be interesting, or a coaxial design like the little Chinook...
