how you guys are mounting props on a Y6 (with KK2 of course). ?

3 top motors are spinning CW (top view) so i put pusher props with writing up.

3 bottom motors are spinning CCW (top view) so i should put normal props. Should the writing to be facing up (sky) or facing down (to the ground)?
Up at the sky

Writing must ALWAYS be on top (i.e. facing the sky).

I dont think enough people answered your question yet.

You need to make sure the lettering i always facing up on your props.

Can we get back to talking about the KK2 board please?

Nice! I already have a quad, a VTail and a T6. Now I suddenly feel the urge to build a tri...

Can I ask you where you got the yaw mechanism from?

If your quad is spinning out of control, then your motors are spinning the wrong direction. Reverse direction on all 4 motors, and try again. Make sure to swap props so they all produce downward thrust.
