Will this slightly different mixer set up for an Octo work?

Hi everyone,
I'm about to put together my WK-M and was wondering, would there be any reasons not to run my mixer set up like in this diagram?

I want to run 2 overlayed X shapes each on different batteries for better redundancy.
If I did that with the normal mixer setup (where each prop rotates in a different direction) then if one battery went down then all of the other props would be spinning the same direction.

This setup would alleviate that. I call it Octo x on +

Thoughts?

Thanks
Jesse

Hey all,
So doesn't anyone have any thoughts on this? Is it such a silly question or is it something no one can be bother thinking about

Cheers
Jesse
