This is awesome! Do you have to separate controllers or how is this setup?

So cool. How hard would it be to have take off rotors that could then rotate to a forward position for forward flight?

I can rotate the motors no problem... But the APM 2.5 is allways active on those motors...

So to do it right, the APM code would have to change, and its a big program.. !!
