Might even need nose weight to balance it.
Yes the props rotate in opposite directions. The motors were straight off a quad copter so I already had the counter rotating prop. I didn't bother using 2 channels and a rudder mix to make the motors run at different speeds but that might be something else you could try as it gives amazing handling characteristics.

As for drilling the holes... they're parallel with the bottom of the wing and it doesn't appear to matter what speed I'm doing the plane's attitude stays as it is.
