    Hello,

    I've got myself really confused here... I managed to damage a rotor motor in a crash so I bought 4 new replacments.

    I just replaced the motors okay taking care to wire them correctly, but I forgot about how they need to be placed considering the right and left hand threads, so of course I got it wrong.
    So my question is which corners of the "X" of the Quad get which motors in relation to the left and right hand threads !!!

    Thank you in advance for any light you may be able to shed on this !!

    Tom...

    look at the phantom from the back (looking at the battery) prop with black dot on the bottom right and left diagonal,
    prop with a silver dot on the left back and upper right diagonal.
    if you don't know which motor is which just put a black dot prop on it, if it doesn't work it's the silver dot prop :)

    The arms have the rotation direction molded into them.

    From there it should be pretty easy, No?
