So, are you running the same blade pitch on all the motors, or did you vary the pitch on the lower props? And if so, did you go through a phase of trial and error or more the TLAR method?
Yes same pitch/prop size top and bottom on every Y6 and X8 I have built.
I have yet to see "proof" that a coaxial setup will fly any better with different size/prop pitch for upper and lower.
I am 100% confident that if I put 2 exact same coaxial setup in the air and 1 had all the same props and 1 had diff prop pitch on the bottom you would never ever tell the difference.
If this is true is it really worth the effort worrying about it?
