So if you have a controller that supports up to 8 motors, could you still use it to make a 12? Maybe by connecting two motors to each ESC? Obviously the amperage would need to increased.

you can double up the signal outputs from the board to get 12 motors from 6 outputs but you need 12 esc's because I found the spinning motors feedback power which messes things up if you share esc's (you can actually spin one motor by hand and the other will move). Also with this set up you need both props (top and bottom) spinning in the same direction because the board doesn't know its using more than 6 motors. I have experimented with smaller faster (higher KV and smaller props) motors at the bottom so that the effect is to speed up the air flow with the bottom motors.
