propellors

hi David I notice that you always refer to using standard rotation propellers on your tricopters, yet all the KK boards only show CW and  C C W blades in there instructions.Is there a special set up required to be able to use standard pop,s

Nealy ready to trial your tricopter design but which props?

  1. Using propellers that all rotate the same direction on a Tri-Copter is no problem, the only difference is the extra yaw input from the addition torque.

    I myself prefer using 2 props rotating one direction with 1 rotating the other due to the increased yaw response, slightly better efficiency, and the lack of “tilt” that I seems to show up in videos of Tri-Copters running props all in the same rotation direction.

    But just to clarify it is not necessary to run 2 CCW, and 1 CW prop. especially if you are just starting out flying.
