You dont neccesarily have to cross lines, a better analogy would be the center will be roughly the same distance from each motor, so does not matter if 2, 3, 4 or more.
Which sounds like you would agree that a spider frame's center of lift is going to be pretty close to the midpoint between the forward and aft motors (if we ignore complex flow interaction for the moment), yet earlier it seemed like you were in agreement with divination by string geometry?
