After messing around with this idea on and off for nearly a year I have finally gotten it finished and flying beautifully. I went through quite a few iterations of the front motor mounts but now have them pretty much dialed in and working perfectly.

I have never really liked the idea of a "Quad" plane as they have too much hardware and weight to be efficient in forward flight so I decided to do a tri-copter set-up like the E-Flite Convergence with two front tilt motors and a fixed rear motor. Flight control is handled by a Matek F405-wing board running Arduplane/Chibios firmware and works brilliantly!
