I am building a VTOL transitioning plane with 6 electric engines - 2 of which are a larger distance aft from the CG in hover.  Because of this, we expect the ESCs (electronic speed controllers) to appropriately adjust the takeoff thrust from the 4 front motors to be 100% and the back 2 to only reach about 35%. I would love to model this in X-Plane, but I do not understand any way that I could either at least manually restrict power to 2 of the 6 engines or optimally have the program mimic the work that the ESCs perform.  Hopefully if anyone has simulated a multirotor they have come across similar, if not as extreme, problems and could help me out.
