Great video. Good job with the dead stick. It's easier with 1 motor that's failed, we practice gliding everytime we fly. It is much more difficult to properly identify and fly a twin with a motor failed. Most of us wouldn't understand what is happening and add extra throttle to compensate for the loss of thrust. Without adding rudder, this would just flip the plane on its back. Many have said about light twin engine aircraft, "the second engine just brings you to the sight of the crash quicker". There is some truth to that, unless a pilot is consistently trained on how to fly on one engine.
I'm too off topic, so let me bring it home. I have considered using 2 of the PWM channels on the DOSD for throttle, and programming a radio mix to allow independent motor speed on a variable knob. This would allow me to practice single engine operations, and see what the performance would be on one engine. It would also allow me to sync the prop speeds and get rid of the harmonic that is causing vibration jello on my HD camera. With both ESCs attached to different PWMs, DOSD should treat them the same during throttle management, so there should be no difference, right?
Anyone see a problem with this?
