The reasons for the twin idea :

a) To have contra rotating props and eradicate torque on launch / flight.
b) To lessen effects of losses we get when only one prop ... same as powerboats with twin props ... effectively gains a slight increase in speed / control.
c) To counter the weight of serious battery power and twin ESC's

As you see there is a definite logic behind the twin pusher idea ... which once I get my parts will be finished and tested. I'm just annoyed that it's taking so long to get to flight ... now I've changed job - I hope to have more time at home ...
