    I just go done splicing and installing T-motors in my Phantom after a crash. I wired them all correctly and they all spin correctly, but I just noticed that two motors have reverse thread nuts. My error while reading the directions. What are my options:

    1) leave it and do proper nut check before flights
    2) attempt to remove the spinning part of the motor and switch it with the correct one.
    3) take it all apart and re solder them all which sounds like a nightmare.

    Can the motors spin rather way without problems? I think they are designed this way but with over 2K tied up in the rig I don't want to do anything more bone headed.

    # 3 is last choice, #2 can be achieved with a little effort, #1 is and do for now then go #2 when you get your energy up, when I changed mine, to T-motors that was a concern to me, and was a head scratcher for a while, good luck

    Option 2, swap the tops of the motors, tho its probably easier to swap the motors around. The threads are designed to be self tightening, so if they are backwards, then they'll be trying to come un-done!
