Default Equal Lift

I was thinking I would get equal lift if I countered one prop.But which one on something like this.I'm looking to pull more air over the larger part of the wing.I think it's basic pulling air from the outside in?Looking for other opinions?

Charlie, no, do not counter rotate the prop, the solution is in having more aerodynamic wingtips - see thread elsewhere in this forum.. you need it to be around a Reynolds number of 3000 at 1500 rpm to have it in alaminar flow regime to reduce drag. You also got to think about installing a trim tab on one wing so you can improve the directional control.
