from octocopter to dodecacopter prop rotation

Hi guys,

I recently built an octocopter from Hubsan h107 spare parts. It's working great! But now I want to kick it up a notch. I want it to have 12 props/motors instead of 8. Now I was using the left illustration from the image below because I need an X config because the flightcontroller is build for X. Is there anyone here who can tell me what rotation I should use for 12 motors in an X config?



Here you can see the current one with 8 motors/props:
H107 Hack Octocopter - Normal-Mode (2 min 26 sec)

and here:
H107 Hack Octocopter - Pro-Mode (1 min 16 sec)

Hmmm. You might get someone here who can answer your question, but the folks who hang out in the Multirotor section here:

http://www.rcgroups.com/aircraft-ele...ltirotors-790/

are probably your best bet. Good luck, that's one heckuva chopper...
