Lot of people finding difficulty while flying rc planes, though they had the experience of flying Quad copters, hex copters,...etc.The main problem is the controlling theory will be different for planes and copters.So adding a flight stabilizer makes it easy for the beginners while flying (gliders / 4ch ) rc planes.
Now this topic will cover the concept of converting your quad copter Flight controller into a fixed wing / aeroplane flight controller.
Most of us begin the quad copters with kk 2 boards.So lets see how to upload the fixed wing (also known as aeroplane) firmware into your kk board.
