Default dual electric engines


for dual engines, i hear that we're supposed to run them running in different directions. is this correct? and they should both be spinning towards the inside but in different directions. how would we do this with the esc? would we change the wiring on one of them and swap the current cables?

Default RE: dual electric engines

The normal pratice is that the motors and hence props rotate in opposite directions, viewed from astern the port rotates anti clockwise and and starboard clockwise. ie both upwards in the centre. Therefore you must have left and right hand props fitted. To change rotation alter the individual motor wires .
