The photo shows that motors are deployed down. Screws further. Ideally, the CG must be below the screws. My model is at CG screws.
Sorry, my English is not their native language.

It doesn't matter if the screws (propellers) are up or down. Either way, the thrust line is through the pivot point. What matters is the location of the pivot point relative to the C.G. I think you have effectively answered that question.

Thanks.

I love native 18 's reverse engineering on the motor pivot points ... using a blade grip the wrong way around is a really neat idea ....
It took me quite awhile studing the picture to pick up on that ,,, enlarging also helped !!!

This would work great on tricopters also ,,, it will be filed away for future use
Thanks for sharing

True, thrust line is always through pivot and adequate pivot-CG-distance is crucial.
But it does matter if the motors are pointing up or down if the nacelles are not balanced itself - consider the weight shift! Dependent in which direction they are mounted the (longitudinal) CG will move with or against the desired pitch movement.

This is true. I noticed with my bicopter if I let it hang by the arms, and disturbed it with the motors powered down, it would oscillate almost indefinitely. When I reverses the gain to be backwards, I could get it to almost immediately dampen out a disturbance.

Actually, there are a number of factors that goes into determining where the CG is on a Bicopter. 1. If it is an OAT or FAAT, 2, How high the props sets above the Spar and 3, the angle of rotation are the most important ones.

This is high enough? This model flies much better Gress Aero.

CG just below the screws. Bending aluminum tube made ​​in order to raise the screws above the cab soldiers.
Photo provisions battery and controller I will later.
