    Tri-Copter front motor directions...

    So I was wondering whats a better set-up both moving the same direction or having the two front motor's rotating in opposite directions? If they are opposite will that remove the large amounts of counter rotation that I have to give in the tail motor?

    Doesn't really matter... If you run all CCW, or all CW then it will lean a bit more while hovering in place, or you can do one prop spinning one way, and the other two the other way, but it won't matter which one is the odd duck. Personally I like tricopters cause you can run all standard (and cheaper) props... if your plan is to have a gopro on there you can put a shim under it to account for the leaning.

    I see I was just wondering if there was any efficiency or anything that is removed. I still am trying to get my go pro to not get the shakes haha. Also I was talking to carbon and brought up the good point that I don't have to have any special props or anything either...
